Boys live in cabins according to grade and/or age. There typically are six to eight boys in a cabin, with a counselor and junior counselor living with the boys.
Behind the open living area where the boys and staff stay is a type of locker room which includes wooden cubbies for each of the campers and two cold-water sinks. There also is a small, enclosed area with a flush toilet. Hot showers are in the main lodge a short distance from the cabin area.
Dining hall & meals
We enjoy breakfast and dinner in our huge dining room — with boys and counselors sharing round tables that seat six or seven. Lunch is in a sizable picnic area in front of the dining room.
The cabins and dining room are more than just spaces and locations. They are where the wonderful sense of camaraderie characteristic of Wachusett often grows.
We want the boys in a cabin to feel that they are part of a lively, close-knit group. It is there that we want them to cement old friendships and develop new ones.
In a similar way we want meals to be wonderfully enjoyable social moments. The food, by the way, is excellent and gets rave reviews from the boys and the staff.
