Most cabins have indoor fireplaces and common areas to hang out, play cards and make friends during down time. Camp has a boy’s side and girl’s side, each with its own bathhouse with private showers (the bathhouses are cleaned daily). Campers attend the bathhouses as a group, supervised by staff. Shower times are scheduled at the end of the day with the youngest campers first. Meals are eaten in the dining hall, the largest building at camp. Food is prepared in our modern kitchen under the direction of our fabulous food service manager. Our kitchen is inspected annually by the health department and has an outstanding record for cleanliness and quality. Our meals are well balanced with a full salad bar available at least once per day. We are able to accommodate any dietary restrictions your camper might have. Parents are encouraged to be involved with making sure campers have a fun, safe and comfortable experience at camp. We would love to give you a tour anytime, just give us a call.

CIT (Ages 15-17)

The first week of the CIT session focuses on learning effective leadership, teamwork, communication, problem solving, and how to be a positive role model to youth. CITs spend the second week of their session shadowing a camp counselor and working directly with a group of campers to assist in activities. No experience required. The weekend stay-over is included with the camp fee. Weeks 2-3: June 16-28 Weeks 7-8: July 21-August 2 Tier A: $820 Tier B: $759 Tier C: $697

During the weekend, the CITs form even tighter bonds as they go on a 2 night 3 day pack-out to practice their skills. During the second week the CITs will facilitate overnight trips, with the guidance of our counselors, for campers in our resident camp program. Each CIT will have the chance to plan, coordinate and lead campers on overnight camp-outs.
