Please fill out a Guest Interest Form and plan to arrive between 9:30 - noon on Sunday, 8/22.

Please be fragrance-free before arriving at the center.  Here is our fragrance-free guide.  Upon arrival, we will work with you to minimize fragrance including asking you to change clothing.  It's best to start the process of getting fragrance out of clothes and hair as soon as possible as it can take up to two weeks.  The key words to look for in ingredient lists are "fragrance" and "parfum".
