While I have no personal knowledge of what these units may be able to do for your team, I have been told by several units that ARMY National Guard Armory facilities AND AIR National Guard facilities (Robins AFB would be the closest facility) may provided a very low cost (many times FREE!) alternative for schools looking to overnight somewhere without camping on a tight budget. These units may be able to help, or they may know somewhere nearby the area that would be of great assistance for those looking to save money.
