Lodging is dorm style. Campers are housed on campus in either our main "Chinook" lodge or the "Coho" lodge. The Chinook lodge sleeps about 55 kids and Coho sleeps around 45 kids. Starting with the youngest campers, the majority will stay in one of our two on-campus lodges. We recommend that the younger kids stay in Chinook, our main lodge. Older teens really like staying in Coho, our newer lodge. Each dorm room sleeps 6 to 12 people and each dorm room has it's own bathroom and shower. No need to bring your own bedding or sleeping bag, as each bed has sheets, blanket, comforter and pillow.


It has 6 sleeping rooms for counselors and kids, ski/wax room, game room (pool table, ping pong, foosball, video stations, weight lifting station), dining room, and kitchen serving the best camp food in the area. We also have basketball hoops, skateboard halfpipe, slackline,, zip-line, log-walk, teatherball, gaga-ball pit, trampoline and the only soccer field on the mountain.


Coho has 7 sleeping rooms, a living room with TV, micorwave oven and wifi internet plus a rec room in the basement (air hockey). It's located about 75 yards up the hill from the main Chinook Lodge, adjacent to our soccer field/challenge course..


Other's may opt to stay in condos in Govy. For those who wish to be sure they stay in Government Camp (Govy), campers will have a housing upgrade option. We will be renting additional units in Govy about 5 miles from our campus during our larger sessions (Sessions 5 thru 8). Campers that want to be sure they will stay there can pay an additional fee of $400 per session to confirm their reservation. *We need a minimum of 5 campers committing to the Golden Poles lodging for it to happen in any particular session. Generally we recommend that the younger kids (15 and younger) stay at the camp lodges. Older campers may opt to upgrade to Govy. Those campers that stay in Govy, will be transported to the main campus for breakfast each morning in camp vehicles driven by the camp counselors.

Supervision occurs at all sites.
