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