Bathhouses located near each cabin have flush toilets and hot showers. Our famous family-style meals are served in a large dining hall. Dozens of learning projects are also offered each week, such as model rocketry, flower arranging, GPS guided geo-caching, electricity, cooking, dance, music, drama, and photography. Evening programs include campfires, games, skits, songs, campouts, and a big dance. There's never a dull moment at summer camp. Don't sit around home this summer!
