All about the Cabins!

Cabin Life - Adventures of a Sleep Away Camp!

Sleepaway camps go by various names—away camp, overnight camp, and residential camp—all referring to the same experience. Staying at a sleepaway camp differs significantly from attending a day camp. Developing self-confidence and independence stands as just two of the skills gained by living away from home. When spending nights away, the cabin groups become the hub of fun. They serve as a family within the larger camp community, often fostering the strongest and most enduring friendships among cabin mates.

Each cabin accommodates three to four college-aged camp counselors, who reside in their own room within the cabin. A primary responsibility of every counselor is to familiarize themselves with their campers, ensuring their comfort and facilitating friendships. Cabin mates form unique bonds while collaborating as a group in various camp-wide competitions, preparing for the end-of-week skits, and striving to earn special cabin prizes. Moreover, cabin groups share meals, embark on special hammock campouts, and engage in evening activities together.

We make diligent efforts to accommodate cabin requests from campers of the same gender and within a two-year age range. Nonetheless, over half of our campers arrive without specific bunkmate preferences, and they relish the prospect. They'll attest that a highlight of camp lies in meeting new people from diverse corners of the world. Therefore, if you're coming to camp without a specific bunk request, rest assured! Our staff is trained and prepared to assist all campers in forging friendships right here at camp!"

About our Cabins!

Our cabins are some of the nicest available at any summer camp. We don’t have different levels or styles of cabins. Every one of our cabins is roomy, with private bathrooms and showers, a chilled water fountain, semi private bedrooms with comfortable twin mattresses, a large covered porch, central meeting room and who could forget, AIR-CONDITIONED. While campers spend most of their time away from the cabins, we think it's important that after a full, busy day of activities, they are able to get a good night's sleep.

Each cabin sleeps up to sixteen campers with up to four counselors, providing a 4:1 camper to staff ratio. Campers will share a bunk room with one other camper. Camp provides a fitted sheet for each mattress, but you are welcome to bring your own sheets with you if you would like. We suggest a sleeping bag as an option for a "comforter" or for campers to sleep in on their bunks.

Cabin Mates & Assignments!

Some campers attend camp with a friend OR maybe your child made a friend in a previous summer and wants to be in a cabin with them again! In this case, you can make a “Cabin Request” within Campwise. To help us match campers, please input the full name of the camper that your child would like to share a cabin with and try not to only use nicknames. If the campers is within 2 years of age, is the same biological sex and has also requested your child, we will put the campers into the same cabin.

Your camper is sure to make friends on their first day of camp, so don't worry if they aren't coming with a friend.
Campers are assigned to cabins based on their biological sex, age and cabin requests. We have a male and female village, each made up of 6-9 cabins. Typically the youngest campers are housed in the first cabin and the oldest campers being in the last cabin.
