Equipment for the tables located in the North Lounge may be checked out at the front desk by a camp counselor with a valid ID.  Any damaged or lost equipment will be charged to the conference upon final check-out.  Camp or conference groups who wish to limit use of equipment with their guests should note such on the camp/conference reservation form.
