Earthship volunteer Interns camping on the owner’s raw land, have it a little rougher, however we still dub it ‘Camp Hugs’.

Camp Hugs got off to a rough start, but with time, adjustments were made for the cold, wet, damp, camping additions…

Some people preferred to be off the ground completely in hammocks, and once they got tarps and sleeping bags they were warm and dry.
