All team members for these exciting weekends are volunteers who one time were campers. Each volunteer is an active member of the team and works hard to see all campers have a great experience. Look for them in the blue shirts.
Food is prepared fresh on-site by our volunteer chefs. Our campers, as assigned by color groups, do all other food service and cleanup.
We have limited vegetarian options available upon request.
Be prepared - there is always a line in the dining hall!
Assorted items are on sale in our trading post, including snacks and some sundries. Prices are reasonable.
Cub/Parent T-shirts must be pre-ordered when registering.
