Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do we have to bring food?
A: Meals on Saturday and Sunday are provided. We offer an optional Friday Night Dinner for a fee, $7.00 per adult and $6.50 per child. All proceeds from this dinner go to Wellness G.I.F.T.S. You will need to bring only those food items you would like to have to supplement the menu for each retreat.
Q: Do you have a nurse?
A: Unfortunately, we do not have a nurse at the retreats. You can bring a Personal Care Assistant or Nurse and if they pay the registration fee, they will have access to all meals, activities, and amenities at Hickory Hill. If they are willing to go through background checking and our training, they can sign up as a volunteer, no cost, and will be assigned to only your family.
Q: What if my child does not do well in groups?
A: We place children with 1:1 Assistants and those Assistants go around the resort together. When a child is not enjoying the group experience for some reason, his or her Assistant will notify their group leader and other arrangements are made that better meet the needs of that child.
Q: What if we do not like roughing it?
A: Take a look at the lodging photos on the Hammondsport-Bath KOA Resort website. The rentals all have refrigerators, microwaves, coffee pots, AC/heating units, bathrooms, and beds. Lodges and cottages also have full kitchens and dishes. All you need to bring is your linens for sleeping, any food items you would like to have to supplement our menu, and your family's beverages of choice. Don't forget to bring outdoor items such as sunscreen and bug repellent and don't forget any medical supplies or medications.
