Our remaining 8 new tents just arrived at GTD "Central Command". That brings our total to 16 new Coleman Elite 8 Evanston Tents. Because we provide cots to our participants we can get up to 4 people in each "8 person" tent. We've found that cots help give our participants the best shot at having a good night's sleep which is crucial for accomplishing many of the physically demanding activities we do each day of camp. So with the 16 new tents along with a few other tents that we use for staff, guides, & volunteers we can accommodate around 75 people on our overnight events.
Here's what the tents look like when they are set up:

|Coleman invented a hinge door system to give the tent doors a rigid frame. It's great!|
