A: Yep we'll have a bunch of those. There are some bowls and plates, but not much. Everyone should bring their own plate/bowl/silverware to keep clean. If you use the camp pots or pans, please clean them IMMEDIATLY. Do not wait 5 minutes.
Q: Does the kitchen have a sink? How do I wash my dishes?
A: There is no sink. We used to bring a sink but camp members were unable to use the sink responsibly with low water usage. Many people left dishes in the sink to 'soak'. Camp has a number of spray bottles that we will have available with different fluids in them. There is a spray bottle for plain water (Blue), for soapy water (Green), and for vinneager (Red). Immidiatly after using your dish, you should spray it lightly with water and wipe it out with a disinfectant wipe or paper towels. We will have lots of wipes to be provided for you so that you can promptly do your dishes. DONT LEAVE DIRTY DISHES.
