What is outpost like?

In 2024, we are re-launching our Outpost program for ages 13-15. These campers will be staying in different, smaller cabins at our Outpost camp sites. 

Activities for Outpost campers will be more advanced, meaning higher adventure and more learning. More information about what to expect at Outpost will be shared soon.

What are the cabins like?

Cabin size varies by age. Our younger campers stay in larger cabins with more campers (Inpost), and or older campers stay in smaller cabins with less campers (Outpost).

All cabins have climate control, electricity, access to bathrooms, personal cubbies and 2-4 counselor staff.

Inpost cabins are closer to main camp, while Outpost cabins are more secluded.

Campers spend most of their time out exploring nature, but over the week, they spend time in their cabins to rest, gather supplies, and bond with their cabinmates.

 

    What are meals like at camp?

    All meals are prepped and cooked by our wonderful Chef Jai, and her seasonal culinary staff.

    3 meals are served each day, with snacks in-between. Before each meal, we gather around the flagpole and do a combination of meditations, camp songs, and small games.

    Campers are given a select variety of options at each meal. They are also encouraged to explore our fruit and veggie bar.

    We’re able to accommodate any dietary needs provided by caregivers, and as a general rule we do not serve any nuts or pork on our menu.
