Lodging

Camping is FREE and included in the cost of Registration.  If camping, you must bring your own camping gear including a waterproof tent, ground cloth, sleeping bags, pads, flashlight etc. Be sure that your tent is waterproof!   Portapotties are provided for campers (sorry no indoor toilet facilities) and limited indoor shower facilities.  Please note; camping is fun, but rustic. You must be prepared to bring what you need to be comfortable for the weekend.  Personal campfires and campstoves are not permitted. There is no additional charge for camping.

Off Site Lodging is another option. If you opt for more comfort and privacy, you might prefer to stay in one of the lovely B & B™s and hotels in the area.  The WHC is held in the beautiful Lakes Region of NH, and there are lots of lodging options in the area. We recommend Coppertoppe Inn. For additional lodging options click here.  

Indoor Lodging The bunkhouses at Wicosuta are clean and comfortable. Each bunkhouse has electricity, showers and bathrooms.  You can request to be with friends but must do so early (not when you arrive). The cost is for the whole weekend, not per night.  Includes Thursday night if you have pre-registered and paid for Early Check In. Bedding is not provided.  You must provide your own bedding (sleeping bag, blankets/sheets/pillow) and towels.

Gail Ulrich Memorial Scholarship

There are limited number of partial scholarships available to help those in financial need who would like to attend the NE Women’s Herbal Conference. Scholarships offset registration costs by $100 for Adult Registration, $50 for Elders, Teens and Children, and are used to help offset the tuition costs. In order to create as many scholarships and other discounted registration positions as possible, we ask that individuals applying for scholarships don’t apply for work-study positions. If you have an absolute need for both, then call and let us know and we’ll consider your situation. We want everyone who wishes to attend, to be able to come to these wonderful herbal events, as well as making sure that the event's expenses are covered. Thank you for your understanding!

Information about scholarships specifically for BIPOC and QT TwoSpirit people will be coming soon. If you would like to us to let you know when the information is available, please fill out the current Scholarship form.
