Accommodations for Overnight Campers

Your child will be staying in a cabin with children their own age. Each cabin houses 12 children. There will be two cabin leaders in each cabin. There is a central bathhouse in the center of the campgrounds. Cabins are not air-conditioned. You may wish to send a clip on fan with your child and an extension cord. However, cabins are usually quite comfortable at night due to an exhaust fan in the ceiling.

Meals

Well-balanced meals are served in our air-conditioned dining hall. Horton Haven has a reputation for its excellent food.
