CABINS
Our cabins are very basic and rustic. Linens are not provided; pack as though you are camping. There is no heat, a/c or bathrooms in the cabins. Cabins typically have 7 sets of bunks, for a total of 14 beds. Cabin assignments will be divided several ways. We will designate a few father/son cabins, mother/daughter cabins, and family cabins. You may be required to share a cabin with other families or mother/daughter, father/son groups. We are happy to accommodate groups of families wishing to share a cabin, and ask that if you do indeed know other participants you can share with, please plan on doing so.

BATH HOUSES
We have two bath houses at Wahsega, a boys and a girls that all guests share.

CLEANUP DUTIES
Part of the experience at Wahsega includes guest participation in the dining hall and in the final camp cleanup. Guests are expected to contribute to KP (kitchen patrol duty – helping with a meal in the dining hall), bath house cleanup, cabin cleanup and grounds cleanup. These duties will be evenly distributed amongst the guests and will be assigned by Wahsega’s program coordinator.
