ADULT WORKSHOPS

** All workshops are apt to change due to our ever-changing community strategies surrounding COVID-19.  Should we need to cancel a workshop you have registered for, we will refund your payment in full. **

Please call or email Nathan (Buffalo Cove’s director) with any questions at nathan@buffalocove.com  or 828-964-1473.

 

A note on safety: As we have been struck with the task of adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic, Buffalo Cove will implement several core safety measures during our Adult Workshops.  We will be guided by the latest recommendations put out by the CDC.  It is important for us all to understand that these guidelines are always being updated and may affect our group size or ability to hold these workshops.  Please read these carefully and only sign up for a workshop if you feel comfortable committing to, and abiding by, these protocols:

  • Group Size – we will keep the number of participants small and manageable in terms of having plenty of space to learn safely and effectively.

  • Maintaining respectful space - At the onset of every workshop we will establish everyone’s “comfortable space bubble” – and we will respect these bubbles throughout the workshop.

  • Sleeping logistics - For overnight workshops, each participant will set up their own sleeping arrangement, and maintain a safe and respectful distance from other participants' sleeping accommodations.  You may bring your own tent, tarp, hammock, etc. to sleep in.  Buffalo Cove has 4 sleeping shelters that you may reserve upon registration.

  • Food – Each participant will be responsible for their own food during these workshops

Can my teenager attend these workshops? YES! If you have a motivated and capable teen that is interested in these things, we would love to have them join us!  We want to support time afield with cross-generational family groups!
