A Yorktown landmark
Our amazing dining room building, affectionately known as “The Casino,” was built in 1941, and is recognized by the Yorktown Historical Society. How cool is that? We set it up each day for three half hour lunch sessions. Four TVs screens are tuned into whatever sports games (baseball, tennis, soccer, etc.) are being televised during lunch. A large covered outdoor deck is also used for lunch, as well as for snacks and a weekly Bar-B-Que. On rainy days, we transform The Casino into a movie theater. And every Friday our campers are treated to a slide show re-cap of the week with pictures taken by our camp photographer. They love that!
Our home-y bunks
Every group in camp has its own bunk named for a different college. The bunks serve as a homeroom or dressing room; they have benches and hooks so campers can change clothes twice a day for their swim periods. Each bunk also has a refrigerator for storing lunches (brought from home) and snacks (provided by camp.)
Our 3½ – 4½ year old Cubs group is co-ed with a mom in charge. The 4½ – 5½ year old Yale group, our kindergarteners, is single sex with same sex counselors/assistants and a mom in charge of each for extra TLC. All the other bunks are single sex; boys are supervised by a male counselor, girls by a female counselor.
