Where will we stay?
We will stay at Camp Nauvoo. The camp is one mile away from Historic Nauvoo. It has a fully equipped kitchen and dining area for our use. It also has a campfire site, playground, and facilities for baseball, basketball and volleyball.
The Lodge and the cabins at Camp Nauvoo are air-conditioned. The cabins are divided into two groups. A large field and playground separate the two groups of cabins. There will be ample leadership in both the cabins and in the Lodge.
