Family and Alumni Getaways

Family and Alumni Getaways

Escape the city and come to the lakeshore for a socially distanced, fresh air getaway!  This new program gives you the option to truly create your own camp experience.  Reserve one of our camp cabins and enjoy self-directed activities in the outdoors.  You can spend your time hiking, fishing, enjoying campfires, making s’mores, and more!  Pack up your favorite book and your comfy clothes, and come relax at Camp Cavell.  

We are offering the use of our cabins for families and alumni as an alternative way to utilize our buildings for the winter, spring, and fall.  Your stay will help support Camp Cavell for years to come! 

From our unit houses (mini lodges) to our camper cabins, we have a variety of housing options depending on the season.  Each household will have a cabin with a private bathroom.  Tent and RV camping is welcome as well.  Some experts consider camping to be one of the least risky activities!  

CABINS

See below for a description of our cabins, their amenities, and the calendar with availability.  When you register, you will be able to select a specific cabin.  Most of our cabins are equipped with two 15-amp circuits.  Small appliances such as fans, phone chargers, and coffee makers are fine, but they cannot support large devices such as mini-refrigerators and air conditioners. 

ACTIVITIES

We will give instructions for self-guided activities to help you and your family connect more deeply with each other and the world around you.  We may offer staff-led programming, if we have staff available and 10+ people to participate in the activity. You may indicate your interest in staff-guided activities on your inquiry form.  Please note that staff-guided activities require everyone to wear a face mask when not socially distanced and in all buildings.

Explore the lakeshore, feed our alpacas, try our nature hunt challenge, jump into a GAGA ball game, or explore things to do in the Lexington area.  In the evening, enjoy a night walk, campfire, or star gazing!  There’s plenty to explore on our 55 acres!  In the winter, we offer everything from sledding and snowshoeing, to winter beach hikes, and exploring the woods. 

COOKING & MEALS

You can bring your meals or utilize our wonderful area restaurants and grocery store in town. Some cabins are available with microwaves and refrigerators; check with us before you book your dates.  You are welcome to bring a small grill or cook over a campfire in designated areas.  Designated fire circles are located around camp for each separate group.  If your cabin does not have a refrigerator, you are welcome to store food in a personal ice cooler at your cabin.  Additional ice is available for a fee.

STAYING HEALTHY & SAFE

The kitchen, lodge, and dining hall buildings will not be open due to current restrictions.  Each cabin group will be responsible for isolating themselves appropriately.  Participants will take responsibility to keep their group and other groups around them safe and healthy through physical distancing and masks when appropriate.  More information about health expectations and cleaning will be provided in additional documents.

Risks associated with interacting with other groups will be entirely at the discretion of the families or groups involved.  It may be possible for participants to organize themselves for small group activities limited to the current mandates or an occasional campfire if appropriate social distancing and other precautions can be observed.

SAFETY & SUPERVISION

Parents/Guardians are responsible for the actions, safety, and supervision of any members of their party under the age of 18.  Children under the age of 16 must always be accompanied by a parent/guardian or similar adult responsible for their safety and behavior.  All parties must have a responsible adult over the age of 21.  Any guests affecting the experience or safety of other guests will be asked to leave without a refund.  Guests attending with or without minors will need an adult 21 years or older to act as the responsible adult for their party.

The camp’s focus is on enjoying nature and the community of the camp.  We discourage adult beverages from being brought to camp and cannot leave cabins; current law states that a person must be 21 years of age.  If we have a children’s group in camp, NO alcohol will not be allowed on site.

OTHER NOTES

Bedding and towels are not provided. Cabins have toilet paper available only.  After your visit, we ask you to please spray all surfaces you may have touched with a cleaning solution and wipe with paper towels before you leave to protect our staff.  The cleaning solution and paper towels will be supplied.  Adults must assist children in handling the cleaning solution. We ask that you sweep and tidy the cabin before your departure and tie up any garbage and leave it just inside the cabin door.
