Camp buildings include:

  • Maxim’s, a carpeted dining room overlooking the pool and the waters of Indian Cove.
  • Two-story bibliothèque filled with both English and French stories, histories, and books about nature and travel.
  • Malmaison that includes staff housing and a modern kitchen where campers concoct French desserts and full meals in French cuisine class.
  • Le Ritz game room with Ping Pong and babyfoot (foosball) and a second kitchen for French cuisine class.
  • Le Colombier, a stone water tower modeled after a French dovecote with an open-air room at the top.
  • The Longhouse theater for camp performances, designed after Native American longhouses used in the area in the past.
  • L’Atelier, the open-air art workshop.

Campers live in canvas tipis on wooden platforms with electricity, cots and mattresses, and a wooden storage box for each camper. Up to five campers of the same age stay with one counselor in each tipi.

“What the camp has done for my children is just indescribable – they received such positive experiences and treasured the memories.” ~ Michele, Austin, TX
