Camp Facilities

Two villages feature 18 all-season cabins, staff housing, an open air pavilion and male and female wash house. Each cabin has its own restroom with sink, toilet and shower and is equipped with 6 bunk beds to sleep 12 individuals. The large open-air pavilion located in each village is great for use in inclement weather, night-time activities and small group picnics. The South Village sleeps 120 and the North Village sleeps 96.

We have 18 cabins that can be used all year as there is heat in each cabin.

Kellogg Hall, named in honor of W.K. Kellogg II, is where nearly all of our meals  are held.  Downstairs we have our nature room and art studio.

While our facilities are some of the best in the country, what we are most proud of are our staff.  They are trained in the principles of Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility to ensure the care and safety of your child.

Each of our traditional cabins has six bunk beds.  During summer camp, two staff will be in each cabin.

Just outside the barn is our garden where campers learn where their food comes from while they hear chickens and horses nearby.

When children push passed their comfort zone, they find powers they never knew they had.  Our climbing wall helps do just that.

The Barn is where our youngest day campers start their day.  It is a century old barn that was donated to Sherman Lake and rebuilt on property.

There's something special about riding horses through camp.  We have about 20 horses to love slowly walking through camp.

Our waterfront is one of our best assets.  Campers swim, paddle, sail as well as bounce on our inflatable toys.
