Overview

Spend a relaxing weekend gliding across Breakneck Pond! We'll explore our private lake by boat in the morning and evening, enjoying the most picturesque (and cool) parts of the day. In the afternoon, there will be plenty of time to swim, sunbathe, paddle around the lake on your own, or simply relax. No paddling experience is necessary, but you should feel comfortable swimming in deep water with a personal floatation device. Meals will be served in the Dining Hall. Optional Trail Lunches may be purchased at camp by ordering one day in advance. We will stay on Beaver Brook Shelters. Each Beaver Brook Shelter will be limited to 2 tents (no larger than 2 person backpacking tents recommended), which can be borrowed from the camp with advance request. Secure bearbox is available for food storage. Modern bathhouses with hot showers and flush toilets are nearby. Camping equipment may be borrowed (free!) on a first come first served basis.
