For our residential overnight camps, we guarantee a 6 to 1 ration of campers to counselors in a cabin. This means a cabin could go up to 14 people with 12 campers and 2 counselors but usually ends up being 10 campers to 2 counselors.

We ask that you please do not send food with your child to avoid mess in the cabin bunk areas as well as any risk of exposing other kids to potential allergens. We promise to keep your child well fed all week!
