Special Notes

 

Smoke Free Campus


All of Leoni Meadows, both indoors and outside, is smoke free. This is both because we are committed to healthy living and because our 1,000 (very flammable) acres are surrounded by thousands more (very flammable) acres of the El Dorado National Forest. Our commitment to fire prevention not only influences our no smoking policy, but also dictates a number of safety measures relating to all campfires. For this reason, we need you to get specific permission for each and every campfire you may choose to have.
 

Alcohol and Drug Free Campus


As a Seventh-day Adventist organization, we believe that God created us and wants to dwell within us, if we each allow Him. Thus we aim to avoid those substances that can injure our physical health or impair our reasoning and judgment. As part of this we have chosen to be an alcohol free and drug free place, where we can each best hear the voice of God.
 

Pet Free Campus


We ask that you not bring pets with you to Leoni Meadows. Pets indoors can cause allergy issues for other guests during and after your stay. Pets outdoors can disturb the local wildlife, or become a meal for other local wildlife. In addition, we can’t predict, and certainly can’t be responsible for, how each pet will react to other guests. Your precious friend at home will truly be more comfortable at home.
 

Sabbath


Seventh-day Adventists believe that God has not changed His mind on any of the ten commandments. His fourth commandment, to set aside the seventh day of the week for rest and worship, is a blessing as well as a commandment. Because we choose to honor Saturday as our Sabbath, there are certain sports and recreational activities that we do not offer from sundown on Friday evening through sundown on Saturday evening. The Recreation & Activities descriptions note when this is the case. We hope you’ll take this opportunity to rest and seek to know God better. You’ll find no better place to do it.
 

Campfires


Because our 1,000 (very flammable) acres are surrounded by thousands more (very flammable) acres of the El Dorado National Forest we have a number of safety measures relating to all fires and possible sources of spark. For this reason, we need you to get specific permission for each and every campfire you may choose to have. Thank you for your help with this.
