Housing at the Convergence- What to Expect Upon Arrival!
- The Bridges family has generously donated their property and are allowing the CSSC Convergence to use this land as our camping and dining location! The private property is located at 295 Shippee Rd, Oroville, CA 95965 – 5 miles from Butte Campus. Upon arrival we will have you sign a Waiver of Liability, from there you will be free to set up your camping accommodations and begin meeting all the wonderful folks. There will be light snacks available Friday evening, and we encourage you to eat before arriving, and to also bring some extra food for you and your friends to snack on throughout the weekend. Please see the list of supplies to bring, to ensure the most comfortable camping experience possible. Because the ground of the campsite is hardpan, please bring rocks to hold on your tent down, as you will not be able to use stakes. Also, bring a tarp, as there may be rain.
Parking: We will ask that everyone park between the cones in the designated area. If it is raining, we ask that you park on the road.
Toilets/Washing Area: There will be porta-potties on site. There are no showers or sinks. We will have a water and wash area set up for brushing teeth, washing hands and faces. There is also running water for drinking.
First Aid: We will have a first aid kit on site under the large tent with basic supplies. If you have a medical condition that may require specific care, please let us know ahead of time.
