What's included in a VIP cabin ticket?

You'll get all amenities in the standard cabin, plus a welcome basket filled with goodies and an exclusive private cabin for you and your friends. 

Can I stay with my friends?

Yes! Regardless of whether you purchase a standard cabin or a VIP cabin ticket, we guarantee you'll be with your friends.  To ensure that you are bunked with your pals, please register as a GROUP. Please refer to our handy dandy ticket buying guide to make your ticket buying experience a breeze.

I want to come with friends, but would like to buy their ticket separately.  Can I do this?

Yes! Be sure to register as a GROUP. You can purchase 1 ticket or more and will be placed together, so long as you are using the group registration function  Please refer to our handy dandy buying guide to make your ticket buying experience a breeze.

I want to bunk with my friends, but we don't want a VIP cabin.

No problem. You and your friends can register as a GROUP, we'll guarantee that we'll put you together, along with other amazing campers (who will seen be your new friends!). Please refer to our handy dandy ticket buying guide for more details.

I have more than 16 friends who want to bunk together - can we do that?

It's possible, but we can't guarantee it, since we have very few cabins that can accommodate that size.  Send an email to Natalie at info@twoislandsweekend.com and she'll do her best to figure it out. 

I'm buying tickets for myself and friends.  What information to do I need from my friends in order to purchase their tickets? 

You are a great pal! We actually need to know quite a bit of important information about each camper, such as dietary restrictions, emergency contact, allergies or other medical conditions, etc.  We recommend that your friend provide you with this information before you purchase tickets. Please refer to our handy dandy ticket buying guide for more details.

Who will be in my cabin?

You can choose to be in a gender-specific cabin or co-ed cabin by indicating your preference when you purchase your ticket and we guarantee we'll accommodate. 

Are all cabins co-ed?

Certainly not!  When you purchase your tickets, you can indicate if you want to be in a co-ed,  women only or male only cabins.

Can I request a quiet cabin?

Absolutely! This year, we've added a new option for your cabin selection: Quiet cabins for Early Risers. 

Early Riser Cabins will be for those who prefer to have a quiet night to get an early start on the day. There will be a noise/lights out curfew of 11 p.m. (unless otherwise agreed upon with your cabin mates.) However, if you’re in a Early Riser Cabin and find yourself up past then, just be extra mindful + respectful of your sleeping cabin mates when you come in. Early Riser Cabins will also be located away from the standard cabins and the Mess Hall where many late night activities take place. Violators will be shushed.

What is the schedule for the weekend?

We have a jam packed schedule that begins as soon as you arrive to camp!  The details will be sent to you via email a few weeks prior to camp.

 

Do I have to participate in the activities?

No, but we definitely encourage getting the most of the weekend by participating in the activities. This is a camp for grown-ups and you are free to use your time however you’d like.  That being said, there are specific meal times that will not be altered for late comers.  There will be snacks available at all times, but should you miss a meal, we can get you something to eat, but it likely won’t be the awesome food prepared by our chefs.

Are there “in’s and out’s?”

Technically, yes.  But we’d prefer you didn’t. Should you need to leave for a short bit, you’ll need to tell an organizer before you go and check in when you return.

 

Is there an age limit to enter the event?

This is a 19+ event.  We like kids a whole lot – but this is a weekend strictly for adults.

Will there be vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and allergy specific food options?

Of course!  You can indicate this in your registration when you purchase your ticket.

What do I need to bring?

We’ll send you a packing list before a few weeks before the weekend.

Do you have Two Islands Weekend merchandise?

TBD :-)

 

Can I bring a tent to sleep in?

Sleeping accommodations are in assigned cabins only.

Is transportation included?

All campers are required to organize their own transportation. To reduce your carbon footprint and save money on gas, we highly encourage you to carpool.  We will organize a rideshare program for anyone interested in giving or getting a lift.  Details will be sent in early summer. 

 

Can I bring my dog?

No. An exception is made for campers with Service Animals. Campers who require their Service Animal should indicate this in the registration package.

Is Camp Timberlane wheelchair accessible?

Yes! Should any guest be in a wheelchair or require special assistance in some way, please indicate this on the registration when you purchase tickets and we’ll be happy to accommodate you.

Is there going to be alcohol?

As part of your all-inclusive package beer, wine, cider and coolers will be provided, at select times.  On Friday and Saturday night the bar will run from 5 pm until 2 am.  There will be no bar service on Sunday.

Can I smoke?

Yes, but not indoors and leaving your butts on the ground is ABSOLUTELY not allowed.  There will be ashtrays available at all the fire pits.  Please be respectful of the environment and throw your butts away in the appropriate spot.

Does the price advertised include tax and fees?
