Sleeping Quarters: This is a college campus and the sleeping quarters will be spread out. One gender will sleep in the class room building. Another gender will be divided in houses that are a part of campus housing. All places have air conditioning. No beds are provided, so volunteers should bring air mattresses or camping cots.
Cafeteria/Kitchens: Breakfast will be in the school cafeteria of Pineville Independent Schools. Dinner will be at the Family Life Center on campus.
Showers: Showers will be either in the houses or at the family life center depending on sleeping arrangements.
Recreation Space: There is a lot of recreation space on campus. There are also trails for Pine Mountain State Resort Park that are right beside campus. There is a gym in the family life center that volunteers will have access to when it is not being used by other groups on campus.
