Camper FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What are the cabins like?

Residential (overnight) campers live in cabins in groups of 6 or 7, divided by age and gender. The boys and girls take up residence on opposite ends of the camp, though they share the waterfront and program areas. Each cabin has 2 counselors or 1 counselor with a junior counselor. Day campers are in groups of 7 or 8 and are assigned one counselor. Day campers have bunk space for changing and resting.

Can I be in a cabin with my friend?

Your registration sheet includes the option to request a cabin-mate. We make every effort to honor these requests.

Can I bring my cell phone?

No. Please leave cell phones and other personal electronics at home.

What if I get sick?

Registered nurses are on 24-hour duty at the camp infirmary. There is also a pediatrician's office adjacent to the campground as well as a local UrgiCenter and two hospitals within 14 miles with pediatric care available at all times.

Do I need spending money at camp?

Money is deposited in the camp store for each camper; a suggested amount is $15-$20 per week. This is primarily used for snacks during snack bar and cabin nights. Sometimes extra treats are purchased and deducted from store account. Campers also will have some spending money when going on off campus trips.
