The Setting


You'll be going to Dekoven Center in Racine, WI with beautiful comfortable rooms, buildings that feel like you are transported to historic England, with parklike grounds.  It's located next to a park along Lake Michigan.  There's a gorgeous beach on Lake Michigan with some dunes about 3 miles away.  The grounds are full of majestic trees and gardens that are in full bloom in August.  They also have air conditioning available in most of their meeting and dining areas (and the AC is adjustable). 

At Dekoven we're able to have a more intimate camp experience where we have those serendipitous meetings that are classic 'Saug'.



Personal Comfort

Rooms: You'll find beautiful peaceful rooms, each similar, but unique, in pastel colors and labeled with inspiring attributes like 'enlightenment', 'love', 'patience' and 'creativity'. Taylor hall where we all stay is located in the back of the property next to a small woods and facing a parklike quad with mature trees and the labrynth. 

Each room will generally house 2 people, although singles may be available for an extra fee. All bedding is supplied and the rooms feater (mostly) single beds.  Pillows, duvets, sheets, and towels are supplied.  Some rooms have room to push the single beds together to make a double sized bed for couples (if you double up your bed, you'll need to bring your own larger top covers). Each room has unique comfortable furniture, high ceilings with ceiling fans and at least one window. There will be many bedrooms available with air conditioning this summer at no extra cost. Bathrooms are located on each floor, some single baths, some shared.

Common areas: Inside there are comfortable chairs and lots of corners and nooks to have an intimate conversation with a new or old friend. If you want to set up a yoga mat, a card game, an impromptu dance party, a sing-along, or a quick nap, there's a space for that.  Be as active or as relaxed as you prefer.
