Event Schedule

Event Directions



Attendees who plan to be around for the whole weekend can start arriving on Friday afternoon and stay until late Sunday morning. (The Coru will clean up and vacate the site by Sunday afternoon.) If your schedule is a bit tighter than that, you can stay for just a day or two. Feel free to come and go as you need to.

Morrígan’s Hearth typically happens in August. Check out the link below for the year you’re interested in to see the specific dates.

Location & Accommodations

The gathering is being held at Camp 3 of the Mendocino Woodlands in Mendocino, California, a beautiful park in the redwoods of the Mendocino coast in traditional Pomo territory, about 3 hours from San Francisco. Directions and info about the site can be found here. The camp has 16 four-bed tent-cabins. The cabins are on wooden platforms with small wooden stairs for entry, covered by canvas tents over wooden frames. Each cabin has 4 simple camp beds, all single-sized. Most cabins are within easy walking distance of toilet facilities, but the paths are sloping and on hilly terrain. Two of the cabins are in the level area along the creek, but are farther from the toilets. Tent cabins do NOT have blankets or bedding – you will need to bring your own sleeping bags and pillows. There is also plenty of space for tent-camping in a nicely level, shady area of the camp, and you are welcome to bring a tent.

The towns of Mendocino and Fort Bragg are about 15-20 minutes drive from the camp, and there are many lodging options if you prefer not to camp. A list of local hotels can be emailed to you on request, or you can use a web search. The area is a popular coastal vacation and wedding destination, so advance booking may be needed.

Come prepared! Please pack appropriately. You will be in a natural environment, where you may experience heat, cold, insects, wildlife, rough terrain, daytime sun exposure, and lack of outdoor lighting at night. Please come prepared. Bring FLASHLIGHTS as it is very dark in the redwoods at night away from fire circles and the paths are not lit. You may also want insect repellent in case of mosquitoes. You will also need your own bedding, and towels for the showers. Electrical outlets are available only in the Hall. There is no WIFI and little to no cellular signal (depending upon your mobile carrier) at the site.

For Mendocino, daytime high temperatures are usually in the mid-60s to mid-70s Fahrenheit in August, and nighttime lows average about 50 degrees. In case of a heat wave temperatures could be higher. Rain is unlikely.


Outdoor fires are allowed only in designated fire pits. Fire danger is high in this area especially in summer. NO fires in or near campsites, and no campfires are allowed other than in specific, designated fire pits. There is a dining area with tables where you can use your camp cooking gear if that is your preference.  Candles and flames of any kind are not allowed in cabins. No flame of any kind should ever be left unattended. We don’t want to risk causing more wildfires, please!


A meal plan is available for the weekend (Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast/lunch/dinner, and Sunday breakfast). Dietary restrictions and food allergies will be accommodated for as much as possible, provided we have advance notice. Please see the link below for the current pricing.

You may bring your own food for self-catering if you prefer not to sign up for the meal plan. Note that kitchen use and refrigerator space will not be available for self-catering, so you will need your own ice chest and food preparation tools. No cooking fires will be allowed, but use of a camp stove in the dining area is fine.

Potable water is available at the Hall and other running water spigots around the camp.

Common Accessibility Questions

  • The campsite’s terrain is mostly flat with a few spaces that sit on top of a gentle incline. The campsite itself is not paved. The paths are hard-packed dirt and wide enough to accommodate standard-sized mobility aids, including wheelchairs, although there may be rocks, sticks, or uneven ground. The concrete flooring of the bathrooms is sometimes higher than the level of the ground and so may be an issue for wheeled devices.
  • Bathrooms are the concrete-floored facilities with stalls found in most state parks. We consider them gender-neutral.
  • Showers are available in a shower house.
  • Mendocino Woodlands allows licensed service animals only, and advance notice is required. No pets or emotional support animals are allowed.
  • Alcohol is a common offering used during rituals.
  • Electrical outlets are available only in in the Hall.
  • There is no WIFI and little to no cellular signal (depending upon your carrier) at the site.


Costs change each year depending on inflation and resource availability. Please check the link below for the year’s pricing.

COVID Safety Policy

COVID-19 is still a danger, so even though we are choosing to host an in-person event for the first time since the initial lockdown in 2020, we want to be mindful about the risks.

Attendees must show proof of vaccination at event check-in. If you are unable to be vaccinated due to age or health reasons, please contact us at events@corupriesthood.com.

When arriving at the event, you will be asked to take an antigen test before entering the site. The Coru will provide a 15-minute antigen test. If you test positive, you will be turned away and entitled to a full refund.

Masks are not required but they are encouraged. Masks will be provided at the event if you do not have your own. Most events happen outdoors, but group meals are shared indoors in the Lodge; individuals are certainly welcome to take their meals outside if they prefer.

If you test positive for COVID-19 after the event, please let us know by sending an email to events@corupriesthood.com. This information will be kept confidential, and will allow us to alert all attendees that they may have been exposed so that they can take precautions to keep themselves and their own loved ones as safe as possible.
