During family camp, families stay in cabins. Each cabin can sleep up to 10 people. Cabins have 5 bunk beds as well as a bathroom and shower. Smaller families may be assigned to share a cabin with another family. If you are inviting friends to join your family for the weekend, you may request to room with that family on the registration form.

If your family prefers to stay alone, private cabins are available on a first come, first served basis at a rate of $400 per cabin. A private cabin may be requested on the registration form. Have a tent or camper? Private campsites are available and may be requested on the registration form.
