The residence hall has a secured entrance and the campers are monitored by the residence hall directors, assistants, and by our own camp counseling staff. Roommate requests are to be made at the time of registration and cannot be guaranteed. Requests must be made by both participants to be honored. Room assignment requests will not be shared until time of check-in. Continuing Education Services works to match roommates based on age and school/community. Every effort is made to ensure that campers are not housed alone. However, "no-shows" and uneven numbers do occur from time to time. Requests for single rooms will not be honored. Please note that our residence halls are not air conditioned. We strongly advise campers to bring a fan if possible. The bathrooms and showers offer clean, individual stalls for privacy. Resident campers will have three well-balanced meals each full day. Meals are included in the registration fee.
