Lodging Options

One of our top priorities is to make sure your accommodations are a good fit for you while you’re visiting us. Our building courses can be tiring, and it’s important that you get quality rest in a place where you feel comfortable. As a general rule of thumb you can do quite well here on a daily budget of around $100 per day including your room, food, and a little fun. As soon as your registration is confirmed, we’ll touch base with you and see how we can assist you.
