what if i registered but can no longer go?
Focus retreat tickets are non refundable but transferrable up to two weeks prior to the retreat. Please email email@example.com and let us know if you are registered but can no longer attend the retreat.
how will i get there?
We encourage carpooling to camp. If you are unable to find someone to carpool with, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ride the charter bus. Epic secured a charter bus that can bring folks to the venue and back to SF. It’s $20 per person roundtrip. Here are the details:
The pick-up/drop-off point is near Epic
SF to Alliance Redwoods departs at 2pm on May 17
Alliance Redwoods to SF departs at 1pm on May 19
For those prone to car sickness, be aware that the roads to camp are a bit curvy. We suggest printing directions to camp, as GPS signals can get lost in the Redwood forest. You can also download offline version of maps and save it on your device.

will there be parking?
Yes! When you get there, please park in the main parking lot or the gravel overflow lot. No vehicles may drive across the bridge unless given permission by the venue.
will there be wifi and cellphone reception?
WiFi is available in the venue's office, dining hall, and most meeting rooms on camp. It is an open network.
Cell phone reception is poor at camp and in the surrounding area. The camp phone number is 707-874-3507 ext. 0 for the front office. Please give this to anyone who will need to get in contact with you while you are at camp. Complimentary phones are available in our hospitality lounge, located in the office.
what's the food like? can i bring my own food?
Breakfast will always have oatmeal and fruit/yogurt bar. Lunch and dinner will always have soup and salad in addition to the main meal. The venue allows you to bring your own snacks and drinks into the meeting rooms. However cooking indoors, in meeting rooms or inside lodging, is not allowed as this is a major fire safety concern.
what are the room types? what about room assignments?
We will be staying in cabins and lodges made up of sets of bunk beds. Expect to share a room with other guys or girls. For families, the plan is to keep the family together.
More information on room types and assignments will be shared a few weeks before the retreat.
