The Green River Preserve base camp is comprised of the main lodge and dining hall, camper cabins nestled in the woods, an infirmary, craft hut, cordwood cottage, staff lodge and mentor lodge. The main lodge also features two massive stone fireplaces, art and nature rooms and a newly renovated kitchen.
Also within base camp are two spring-fed ponds, large playing fields, stream-side pavilion, organic gardens, an apple orchard and a custom-built climbing tower.
Campers live in cabin groups of up to six, with their respective counselors. Each cabin is a duplex joined by a central bathroom. Campers sleep on bunkbeds.
Health and safety
Each camper’s health and safety is of the utmost importance to us. The camp infirmary is staffed with a registered nurse. Counselors and mentors are first-aid and CPR trained and/or certified. The vast majority of our program takes place on private, protected land, and our camper to staff ratio is 3 to 1. A camp radio system allows communication between base camp and hiking or camping groups. A fleet of brightly painted school buses provides safe camper transportation throughout the Preserve.
