Patches. Each camper will receive one patch in return for his or her registration fee. A limited number of patches from past Encampments will be for sale. Current year patches may be sold after final registration needs are determined.

Surveys. We distribute survey forms which we encourage you to fill out with your opinions of the Encampment. Return your form to us at Check-out as you receive your patches. There is no need to identify yourself on these forms.

Unusual Weather. Patriot Days is held rain or shine. We watch weather forecasts closely throughout the weekend.

Activities run by Encampment staff are held �weather permitting." All activities and events by outside volunteers are held according to their best judgment.

In case of a severe weather forecast or weather events during the weekend, procedures for check-in, traffic, and check-out will change. Consult our website for special instructions in the event of severe weather forecast.  We have adjusted parking arrangements in the past.

Note that there are no structures at the Homestead that are capable of sheltering all of the people who come to Patriot Days.  You should make severe weather plans for your own group before you come to Patriot Days.  Parking areas are within at most 15 minute walking distance.
