Troops/groups will be bunked in their own cabin in either the Olde Schoolhouse or Fort Rawhide cabin areas.  Final group size determines cabin assignment.  Cabins are outfitted with wooden bunk beds/covered mattresses and overhead lighting.  The modern shower/restroom facilities are located immediately adjacent to the housing areas. 

The group’s reservation must be made under the auspices of a sponsoring organization (i.e. Scouts, YMCA, etc.) who must provide the necessary Certificate of Liability insurance paperwork.
