Overnight Meals... The camp food is superb! Thursday night's dinner and Friday's breakfast and lunch are hearty and kid-friendly. If your child has food allergies, please send special food(s) for your child.

Overnight Accommodations... Boys and girls are organized separately with the others in their group for sleeping arrangements in cabins, the Lodge, on the covered deck, under the Gymnastics Pavilion, or in "Tent City" by the Family Tree. Everyone is provided with either a bed, a gymnastics mat, or a camping pad for sleeping "slumber-party style" on the floor or ground. Counselors supervise each group continuously.

Special Events!... The after-dinner event includes costuming, making props and decorations, food and activities in theme. The theme is announced early in the week for that week. Some exciting ones are: Capture-the-flag, Disney Characters, Pirates and Ninjas, Camp Olympics, Super Heroes, Book Heroes and Heroines, Happy Birthday America, Around the World ... Cast your vote, we'll make it happen!
