Our brand new cabins (12 for girls and 12 for boys) now feature bathrooms and showers. They are air-conditioned and heated for comfort in a variety of conditions. Our new dining hall has been relocated to the water front and offers 12,200 sqaure feet with an additional 3,500 square feet of porch space.

The stage is approximately 10 x 18 with steps the full width of the front and access from the side via another stairway.
