Reserving a Shelter

If you would like to reserve a shelter for groups smaller than 100, please fill out the Shelter Reservation Form. For groups of over 100, please fill out the Online Group Permission Form. The online forms are the best way to reserve a shelter and will get you a more timely response. If you strongly prefer to reserve over the phone, you can call the Community Services Office at 802-223-7335. The phone method is slower and requires mores staff time, so we encourage people to use the online forms.
