FCRP Closing

What to bring:

To make your stay more pleasant please remember to bring coat hangers, reading light, a pillow (for sometimes hard chairs), a sweater, a bathmat, and other bath necessities. If you are not ordering linens bring sheets, blankets and towels. Temperature in the dorm rooms is self-regulated but the meeting rooms can sometimes be rather cool.  


This year there is only one dorm, Stanson which is across the street from Silver. It has elevators and air conditioning.
