Where Will I Be Living?

Camp Counselors can expect to live in cabins with campers. A typical cabin has three counselors and up to twelve campers. There are two shower blocks, located outside of the cabins which both have toilet facilities. Counselors will be sharing their space with campers throughout the summer, therefore privacy is restricted. Kitchen & Housekeeping Staff live in the main building, away from campers, and have access to their own bathroom facilities. Directors and Assistant Directors live on-site.

In addition, staff are permitted three evenings off per two-week session and at least one hour off per day. Kitchen & Housekeeping Staff are permitted three weekends off throughout the summer, plus nine evenings off per session.
