ALL PEOPLE ARE WELCOME to attend our programs and use our camp regardless of race, religion, sex, national origin, or disability. If you have a disability and feel you need assistance or further information please call 814.349.5633.

COMFY CABINS

While at camp, you will live in air-conditioned cabins with an adjacent bath.  Each cabin is outfitted with bunk beds and individual storage space for each camper.  Each cabin will have a live-in counselor that is 18 years of age or older.  Each bunk bed will have a mattress but you will need to bring your own sheets, pillows, and sleeping bag.

For our younger campers, ages 7-9 we have mini cabins where a camp parent will be placed in your cabin to help handle the needs of our younger campers.

WHAT TO BRING

FOOD

The Cafeteria:

The Cafeteria has multiple options during every meal time at camp.   There is always a hot meal being served which will switch daily with our menu.  During breakfast there is a fresh fruit bar which doubles as a salad bar during your lunch and dinner meal times.  During every meal the cafeteria is equipped with a cereal bar, peanut butter and jelly bar, pasta bar, soups of the day, and a taco bar with all the fixings.  More than enough to please the picky eater.

Please check out our "Sample Menus" below to get a better idea of Woodward's food service. The first menu outlines a changing hot meal that alternates daily. The second menu outlines our grills and buffet bars at camp. These options are open daily and offer alternate options to our daily changing menu.
