All World Acres Sanctuary
The site for this event, All World Acres, has hosted more than 150 different events over the past seventeen years. AWA is a not for profit sanctuary and campground that is supported by the community it serves. All of the work done to prepare and facilitate this event is done by volunteers. Their only compensation is the satisfaction of working in a family-like environment to better the community at large. We hope all visitors will want to "join the family" and treat AWA as their home and sanctuary. Admission is only allowed during scheduled events. No dropping by please. Directions are located at the bottom of this page.

Community Charging Station
There is a community charging station that can be used for charging phones, batteries, and other useful gadgets. Please turn ringers off if leaving your phone unattended. These can interrupt workshops as well as cafe staff. You are welcome to inflate your air matresses here as well.
Water, Dishes, & Bathhouse
Bathhouse The on site bathhouse includes hot water, shower stalls, and flush toilets. The bathhouse is the building directly behind the stage in the common courtyard. It is a reddish brown color and has a ramp. The showers are located on the front portion, and the toilets are located on the back side (accessed using the same ramp). Please remove all personal items from the toilet and showers when completed. Your towels can be left on the outside wall hooks or on the rails to dry but not in the stalls.
Water The on site well water is potable, however it is high in iron (affects taste) and sometimes has a sulfur smell. We encourage all campers to bring their own water (except meal plan) but discourage individual plastic bottle usage. If you don't want to purchase meal plan we recommend bringing refillable bottles and bring/purchase water in larger sizes like gallon or purchase a reusable container to help cut down on plastic usage. Here is a collapsible water container option and a hard container option.
Dish Area when facing the front of the bathhouse you will see an awning on the right outside. This is the covered dish area. Campers are welcome to wash their dishes here. There are sponges and soap provided. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE your dishes to dry on these racks. This is for the cafe dishes so please be mindful. If you purchase meals or beverages from the cafe, please wash the dishes provided to you, and leave them here to dry. The cafe staff will collect them when ready. Please do not leave sponges sitting in soapy water. Wring them out and place them by the faucet to dry.
Cooking Food & Compost
Guests who do not purchase meal plan or food from the cafe are welcome to bring their own food and cooking supplies. You must use appropriate cooking gear like camping stoves, grills, etc. And if you are using a fire for cooking please read the fire section in the basic policy above. There is no ice available for sale during the event but there are gas stations and grocery stores within 10-15 minutes which can be found on the local places page.
We have 5 gallon compost buckets by the dish washing area. Please put all food scraps, including dairy, bones, meat, and grease, here to be processed. If they are full please inform the cafe staff or someone at the information/registration desks.
