The Cabins

Kabeyun Cabins

Kabeyun Cabins

Boys live in simple cabins ranging in size from up to six younger boys and three or four counselors in lower camp to as many as ten older boys with three or four counselors in upper camp. The cabin population is typically a mix of new and returning campers, and are grouped by age and school grade.

Cabins are a community living space; each boy is responsible for keeping their own area neat and organized, their beds made, and their clothes neatly folded in their shevles. As a group, they spend time each morning sweeping the floor and tidying up the surrounding grounds. Each boy has his own single or bunk bed with a set of shelves to store his belongings. Doors and windows are screened, and counselors have lights in their areas for illumination after dark.

Communal bath houses are a short walk from each cabin, with toilets, sinks, and private hot showers.

Most boys bring their belongings to camp according to the packing list in duffle bags, suitcases, or trunks, and unpack completely on opening day in to their shelves. Luggage is stored for the duration fo their stay in the rafters of the cabin or, in the case of hard trunks, underneath the cabin.
