Spring camp is based out of the historic Balch Hotel. We take over the whole place, so we can spread out and relax.

Everyone will have a private room, however, most rooms have shared baths.

Lodging options at the Balch Hotel:

  • ​Mountain View King, private bathroom
  • Signature Queen, private bathroom
  • Traditional Queen, shared bathroom

You must select a lodging option when registering for camp.

Email hello@specialblendgravel.com with questions about lodging options. We will work to ensure this process is easy and stress-free.

See below for additional information on all lodging options.
