Campers are divided into cabins by sex. There are four girl cabins and four boy cabins. Each cabin is assigned to a certain bathhouse. Each bathhouse has four stalls, four sinks, and four showers. There is also a clothesline outside of each cabin.
Campers will be fed breakfast, lunch, and dinner during their time at camp. Meals are prepared by three summer cooks, who we appreciate dearly! If your camper has any dietary restrictions, please provide them during the application process.
Each day, campers have time to play on our large playground. Our playground activities include kickball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, and football. There is also a shelter and picnic area where campers may visit the canteen to purchase snacks, drinks, and souvenirs. We please ask you send campers with small bills and quarters in a wallet or bag. Our amphitheater hosts our evening movies, talent shows, and end of week award ceremony.
Campers receive instruction at each activity and are encouraged to participate. If a camper does not wish to participate in a certain activity they may abstain. However, if they abstain they will not be eligible to earn the activity patch or the outdoorsman or woman award. Firearm Safety, Archery, Nature, and Outdoor Survival activities will contain portions of the Kentucky Hunter Education Certification tests. Students that successfully complete all portions will earn their Hunter Education Card (aka Orange Card) which is a lifetime certification.

Campers are instructed on archery safety by a certified Hunter Education Instructor followed by the archery range.
