We can almost always have you in a cabin with a same gender friend if you are in the same Division and as long you and your friend request each other on the registration forms. We group the cabins by our division ages – Division 1 ( 2nd-4th grade), Division 2 (5th and 6th grade), and Division 3 ( 7th-9th grade), Division 4 (10th-12th grade). Camp is always great with friends. The ones you come with and the new ones you make.

Every Friday night we have a themed dinner in the Dining Hall to celebrate at the end of session. We encourage campers and staff to dress-up for this special occasion. The weekly themes will be posted by March 1, 2020.
Camp is an active place where you are outside having fun, playing sports, and doing amazing things. You can bring things like books, board games, cards, cameras, flashlights, and other fun stuff, plus any sports equipment you like. If you bring a mountain bike for the adventure program, it can be used only on the adventure trips and not in camp. Since you’ll be so busy, you won’t have time for I-pods, game boys, cell phones, etc. Cell phones don’t get signal at camp anyway, so they are useless. Don’t bring things like water balloons, fireworks, skateboards, knives or any type of weapon. Of course, any type of tobacco (including e-cigs, vapes, or juuls), alcohol or illegal drug is NOT allowed.

Each meal has great food like you get at home. Breakfasts always have good cereals, juice and fruit, plus eggs,pancakes, or French toast. Lunch is great stuff like grilled cheese, chicken nuggets, soft tacos, etc., plus a complete salad bar and fresh fruit bar. For dinner, we offer things like as chicken legs, spaghetti, turkey, etc., along with vegetables and a salad bar. After dinner you get dessert! In addition, you can get a snack in the middle of the afternoon at the camp store Tues-Fri.
Dietary needs: we accommodate vegetarian, gluten free, vegan, dairy free, nut free, and no red meat/pork. Any other needs must be discussed with the Camp Director by calling 864-836-3291 ext 0512. You may also call or email to discuss any dietary concerns with our Food Service Director, James Box at 864-836-3291 ext 0516 or email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the fun evening programs (campfires, packout, capture the flag, etc.) end, you head back to your cabin to get ready for bed and vespers. Vespers is a time to talk about the day, think about what you’ve learned, and set goals for the next day. After vespers, you’ll go to sleep sometime between 9:30 PM and 11 PM, depending on your division.
The cabins are fun places where you, your cabin mates, and counselors will live. We have three different villages of cabins: the Ridgetops, the Lakesides, and the Adventure Cabins. Base camp uses the Ridgetop and Lakeside cabins, which have electricity, heat, hot water, toilets, and private, individual showers. The Adventure Camp uses our Adventure cabins that have running water, toilets, and electricity. Shower houses are nearby that have private, individual shower stalls. No cabins have air-conditioning – it is not needed due to the cooler weather up on the mountain but most campers would recommend a bunk fan.
