Dorm rooms are reserved for participants who are arriving before dinner (before 5:30) on Friday, staying for the full weekend, and leaving between 4:30-5:00 on Sunday.
As this is our first year at Potash Hill and the key assignment process is complicated, we need to be strict with our process. In future years, we may be able to be more relaxed about dorm arrival and departure times.
Dorm availability is limited and dorms will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. There are a few ADA compliant dorm rooms in the mix. The best way to ensure dorm housing is to register early and send your payment promptly.
We want to make it easy for all Rompers to use and normalize the pronouns they prefer. Including pronouns on nametags is now standard at a lot of music camps and other events to make it normal and easy for everyone to know how to refer to each other. This reduces potential confusion and awkwardness, and also creates a more comfortable space for folks who are nonbinary or who use pronouns that might not be obvious to others based on elements of their appearance.
We support a community where individuals choose their own individual gender identity. So we will be striving to refer to you by the pronouns on your button all weekend long, and we will encourage everyone at the Romp to do this. If someone misgenders you or uses pronouns other than those on your button, it's fine to gently correct them. If you make a mistake with someone's pronouns, it's okay to simply correct yourself (or let yourself be corrected) and move on in the conversation.
Even if you think people will be able to easily guess your pronouns, it's still a good idea to include them on your button. The pronouns you choose for the Romp will likely be imprinted in the minds of the new friends you make there, so we recommend choosing pronouns that you will be comfortable using long beyond the Romp and in outside situations.
Potash Hill allows sleeping only in designated dormitory bedrooms and the tenting area. Primitive tenting only is permitted on the soccer field. Tenting in other areas is prohibited. No vehicles are permitted on the soccer field.
