Camp Timber Trails is a beautiful, rustic camp on 417 acres of land. There is plenty of tenting space and limited cabin availability.
Note: no food of any sort is allowed in cabins or tents due to the prevalence of bears and other critters.
Cabins at CTT are 5-7 person former Girl Scout cabins. They have no electricity, bathrooms, or showers, but there are bathroom facilities in each cluster of cabins. Cabin beds are limited and not guaranteed. We encourage everyone to consider tenting.
On your registration form, you must indicate your desire to sleep in a cabin - in June/July we will contact those who’ve expressed interest in cabins and ask for more information. You must fill this out in order to get a reserved cabin, first-come, first-serve. 90% of cabin beds are reserved, the rest are open upon arrival.
Be prepared with lanterns, LED lights, external battery packs, and flashlights/headlights, as there will not be lighting or power sources in most cabins. Aside from a small set of shelves (for toiletries and other items) on the walls, most of the cabins only have storage under the bed.
Gaps in some cabin floor slats may allow bugs into the cabin - bringing a rug or covering the floors with towels or thick cloth may alleviate this.
There is plenty of wooded tenting space, even more than in past locations. Please respect the tenting rules for everyone’s safety and in order to preserve the systems at CTT.
Please see FAQ for tenting locations and rules
There is a shower house near the Dining Hall and indoor showers in various buildings. Bathroom facilities are in each cluster of cabins. There are porta-potties throughout camp. People staying in both cabins and tents will have access to all available bathrooms and showers.
There are activities which produce late-night noise at Dance Camp! Check the schedule and map before setting up home if you want a quieter sleeping space at night.
If you have an accessibility need (accommodation or otherwise), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by June 30th. We will do our best to work with your needs but cannot guarantee accommodation.
DNE cannot guarantee the security of personal belongings. While the Lost & Found coordinator does their best to reunite people with their items, DNE takes no responsibility for items left behind. We suggest you label everything you bring, especially any electronics, and don't bring unnecessary valuables. There have been occasional instances of theft at camp, so think carefully about what you bring and where you keep cash and valuables.
