What's it like to live in a cabin at camp?

Cabin

  • Six campers live together in a cabin.
  • Each cabin group has 3 cabin counsellors.  The cabin counsellors are there to support the campers and to facilitate their group development & social interaction.
  • Campers each have their own bed (no bunk beds) in the cabin.  The cabins are very spacious and each camper has a shelf area for their personal belongings.
  • Each cabin also has a counsellor supervisor.  This person acts as a resource and support to the cabin counsellors.
  • The cabin counsellors sleep in the cabins with the campers.  They have a private room within the cabin.
  • Each cabin shares a washroom facility with another cabin.  The washrooms contain two sinks, two flush toilets, a shower and a place for each camper to hang a towel and store their toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, etc.
  • There is a large shaded porch on each cabin facility.  A good place for campers to hang-out and relax.

What do we eat? And where do we eat it?

  • Meals are a great time for campers and staff to get to know one another.  All meals are served “family style” in the dining hall.
  • Cabin groups eat their meals together at their cabin table.
  • Each cabin is responsible for setting their table, getting the food from the kitchen, and clearing the tables.
  • All of the food is prepared by a catering company.  Meals are well-balanced and nutritious.
  • Cabins receive a nutritious snack at bedtime.
  • Meals can also be a time for great fun!  Have you ever been to a barnyard meal?  Want the milk?  Moo for it!  Crazy hat day is always exciting!  And who could ever forget feeding the person to your left around the table!!!
  • Campers are reminded not to bring any snacks or candy as it is disruptive for other campers and presents storage problems – as well as potential visitors from the animal kingdom!
