Campers stay in bunk beds in a large, rustic, one
room cabin with approximately ten new friends
and one cabin counselor. Six cabins form a unit,
which is supervised by a Unit Director. Rest room
facilities, camp fire rings, picnic tables, clothes lines,
recreation equipment, and refuse containers are
located within each unit. Cabins are inspected for
cleanliness each day by Unit Directors. The cleanest
cabin of the unit receives a special honor on their
last day at camp!
Your Cabin Counselor
Blue Lake’s counseling staff is comprised primarily
of college students majoring in the arts and/or
education. Of the 220 staff members, most are
upperclassmen, some are graduate students, and
many have been Blue Lake campers before. The
counseling staff supervise campers throughout
the day, including all meals, recreation, free-time,
and evening activities. They also assist faculty
with class preparation and plan group activities for
students. All of our staff members strive 24 hours a
day to make each camper’s experience at camp fun,
safe, worthwhile, and memorable.
Who Else is Going to Camp?
In any one session at Blue Lake, you’ll be studying
the arts along with 1,368 other campers. Students
are housed according to age groups, so you will
be placed in a cabin and unit with others at your
approximate grade level. Blue Lake celebrates the
diversity of the arts, and you’ll have the opportunity
to meet many others with different interests and
