Additional Information

(Does not apply to Spring Day Camp)


Camp is an active place and full bellies are important to help keep energy levels high! With this in mind, Blue Lake Camp offers delicious, nutritious, filling meals with vegetarian options.  Campers receive three meals a day in addition to an evening snack with hot chocolate. Fruit is available all day for campers needing something extra. Nut products are not permitted at Blue Lake Camp. With advance notice, we are able to accommodate some special diets.   


Our cozy log cabins are equipped with bunk beds, hypoallergenic/water proof mattresses, wood stoves, and safety equipment. Each cabin is assigned counselors who will provide 24-hour supervision. Cabins are set up in a dormitory style. This gives campers lots of opportunity to tell stories and share activities from throughout the day. The wash house is equipped with sinks, flush toilets, private showers, hot water, and a change area with storage cubbies.


We provide a low camper to leader ratio and our highly trained staff provide leadership, positive role modeling, and ensure the safety of campers. Our team includes first aid staff and certified national life guards.
