During their stay at Camp Lincoln, campers and counselors call our rustic, log-style cabins their home away from home! Each of our cabins features a unique, two-story design with two camper chalets (sleeping rooms) and one counselor chalet on the ground floor, as well as a larger chalet upstairs. There are around six campers per chalet and four to five staff per cabin. Campers are given their own bed, green shelf (bedside table), and a large column of cubbies for all of their personal belongings. Even though chalets are shared with a small group of campers, every camper has their own personal space for themselves and their belongings. Our cabins offer indoor bathrooms with heated water and individual stalls.
On cool evenings and during downtime, campers and counselors are able to play games, tell stories, and have cabin meetings, all while taking advantage of the wood-burning fireplace in each of our cabins’ center chalets. To create more opportunities to build various communities on camp, our cabins are organized into Two-week, Junior, Intermediate, and Senior Divisions based on school grade and length of stay. Each division, or group of cabins, has their own centrally located shower house. Each shower house is equipped with individual shower stalls and heated water.
I loved hearing Isaac talk about the sense of community at camp. He came home trying to recreate the vibe from camp in our house, and has been excited to include his brothers.
We feel that camp provides a healthy and safe environment for our boys to try new things and to learn to do them well, if possible. They get to meet new people from all over too!
It was an extremely positive experience. He has not stopped talking about it since I met him at the airport (I am not exaggerating!)
