Second Harvest with the CDDB Community in lovely
Camp DuBois in Wood River, Illinois for the

6th Annual CDDB Mabon Retreat

Camp Dubois, near present day Wood River, Illinois, served as the winter camp and starting point for the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Founded at the confluence Rivere du Bois on December 12, 1803, it was located on the east side of the Mississippi River so that it was still in United States territory. This was important because the transfer of the Louisiana Purchase to France from Spain did not occur until March 9, 1804, and then from France to the United States on March 10, 1804. The expedition returned again to the camp on their return journey on September 23, 1806.

The Reconstructed Camp DuBois today boasts the old world charm with 5 bunkhouse cabins inside the Fort walls.   Each cabin sleeps 8 with bunkhouse beds and also includes a common area with a cooking fireplace.  There is no electricity in the cabins so lighting is by candlelight or lantern.  However, modern conveniences are not forgotten as the Shower-house has hot running water and flushing toilets.

Workshops • Meditation • Crafting • Raffle • Ritual

Want to ditch the cooking?  The CDDB Community Kitchen will be serving Breakfast and Dinner.  Just do lunch on your own.   Purchase the Meal Plan
