Course Fees and Lodging

$770 - Course and Lodging

$650 - Course Only

Manidokan is located on 300 acres in rural Maryland, boardered by the Potomac river and the C & O canal, just minutes from Harper's Ferry. Lodging is in primitive, dormitory style cabins - think bunk-beds and summer camp. Each cabin is heated and has two rooms, a larger room with six bunk-beds and a smaller room with two beds. There is a bathhouse located nearby with showers, sinks and toilets. Guests who choose the lodging option will have access to a common area that includes a refrigerator, counters for food prep and plenty of room for studying. Hot meals must be cooked just outside of the common area on your own camp stove and cooking utensils.
