Are you ready for the CITR retreat? Join us for an exciting adventure in the scenic hills of West Virginia! This event will take place at Camp Sheppard in Roane County, West Virginia.
The Chickens in the Road Retreat 2011
September 2nd and 3rd
A Hands-On Experience in the West Virginia Mountains
Learn old-time skills and fresh, new methods in a hands-on way with in-person mentorship from fellow CITR friends. Classes will include cheesemaking, preserving, soapmaking, breadbaking, candlemaking, homemade beauty products, and simple woodworking. Take home fun and functional know-how for self-sufficient living and old-fashioned crafting–and take home what you make, too.
The price of the retreat includes your accommodations, meals, classes, and supplies. The total cost per person is $275. You must be 18 years or older to attend. Your place can be held by either a payment in full or a deposit. Stay in the newly-built cabins, bring your own camper, or reserve an RV site. (There is no additional charge for campers, but there is an additional charge for RV sites.) If you bring a camper or RV, you may also bring the family, including children and even pets, to Camp Sheppard with you.
See the Camp Sheppard page for more details about the facilities and accommodations, RV site specifications, campers, pets, children, and outside links to travel and hotel resources (if you would like to extend your trip into a full WV vacation) as well as train, bus, airport, and car rental info.
The CITR Party on the Farm will begin at Stringtown Rising Farm at 1 p.m. on Sunday, September 4, to round out your weekend. (This is a free event and all ages are welcome. Children are particularly encouraged!) Accommodations at Camp Sheppard will be available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights so that you don’t have to rush off after the party if you would prefer to wait till morning to head out.
