In the age of AirBnB and VRBO, parents are accustomed to seeing where they will be staying when they book any vacation. For campers, camp is more than a vacation! It is an adventure-filled, wild, and fun sleepover with friends new and old. For campers, and parents, being able to see what the cabins, dining hall and even the bathrooms are like can help ease any pre-camp nerves they are having.

Cabins

Each open-air cabin has two counselors and up to 10 campers.
