More Information

MEALS

Camp is an active place and good fuel is important to help keep energy levels high! With this in mind, Blue Lake Camp offers delicious, nutritious, filling meals with vegetarian options.  Some meals are served in our dining hall, some are prepared over the campfire while on out-trip. Either way, food safety is top priority. Campers receive three meals a day in addition to snacks. Nut products are not permitted at our summer camp. With advance notice, our camps are able to accommodate some special diets.   

ACCOMMODATION

Parts of our teen programs are at Blue Lake Camp, and parts are on out-trip. Tent shelters are our out-trip accommodation. Please see our packing list for what to bring. Blue Lake cabins are equipped with bunk beds with hypoallergenic/water proof mattresses. The wash house is equipped with sinks, flush toilets, private showers, hot water, and a change area with storage cubbies.

STAFF

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.
