Our Haven is open to all positive spiritual paths, and there are many dedicated shrine areas on the land. Among these are shrines to Pan, Brigid, Aphrodite, the Ancestral Spirits, and the Great Goddess.
If you arrive early to an Our Haven event there is a very good chance that you will have access to a firepit at your campsite. Many firepits are located in the camping fields at the festival location. You may view a map of Our Haven's grounds here to help you plan your campsite. If you are arriving to an event later you may still have access to the firepits, but may need to share with other later arrivals.
Food vendor available for most Our Haven Sponsored Events. Check individual festival websites for food information. If you are coming to stay when a festival is not happening, we ask that you bring your own food, and enough personal supplies to be self sufficient.
In addition to the shelter areas listed above with electricity, there are a limited number of campsites at Our Haven with access to electric hookups. If you or your group are interested in using one of these sites during a festival please contact Our Haven.

The most reliable place for celluar phone service near Our Haven is at the turn off of North Hillham Road onto Spencer Hollow Road.
