Shared cabins are ideal for families with camp-aged kids who want to hang out with their friends. The best part for parents? Our amazing staff will step in to take care of our weekend campers at both in the daytime and night so you and your friends can have some camp fun and relaxation.

Private Accommodations

Want to spend the weekend surrounded by the beautiful nature of camp? Choose our private housing option (either in the wellness lodge or our motel)! Away from the hustle and bustle of main camp, our private accommodations offer the best of both relaxation and excitement for the weekend.
