Housing Options

Some housing options are included in the Standard Food and Lodging Fee. Other options have a surcharge or a discount from the Standard Fee. Discounts and surcharges are noted under each option. See fees for complete fee schedule.

At registration you will express your preferences for housing. Camp staff will assign housing early in April to everyone registered by then. After April 15, camp staff will assign remaining housing as registrations are received. Camp participants will be notified of their assignment and invoiced for housing fees above the deposit. Camp staff will try to honor your housing preferences, but it may not be possible because there is limited space in each building.

Note to families: Parents, teens, and children will be housed together. The Spring Cabins are primarily intended as housing for single adults and young adults in single gender cabins.
