DORM LIFE

 

Don’t like the sound of living in a tent or a cabin for two weeks? Overnight campers and staff live in air-conditioned college dorms with Wi-Fi, lounges to hang out in, and video games to play. We’ll pair you with a roommate the same age and you’ll share a bathroom with other campers in your suite or on the floor. If you know who you want as a roommate, you may email us with a request.

Get some quality Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart time! During the evening program you choose among several options including; outdoor field games, open labs, and free dorm time. If you choose free dorm time, you can relax in your room, hang out and play board/card games in the lounge, or go to the Pop Games room. The Canteen is open each night, so you can stock up on snacks and drinks.
