Cabin Assignments

Cabins assignments are determined, upon arrival at Camp, with a maximum of six Campers per cabin. One or two high school age volunteer Counselors are assigned to each cabin. Every effort will be made to put each child with his or her desired group of friends. Your child will be allowed to cabin with at least one of their friends. Please talk to your child about the benefits of making new friends while at Camp. 


Mealtimes are one of the highlights of our Camp days. Meals are a time for songs, stunts, laughter, and of course — food! Three meals are served each day. Cabin groups sit together and share the responsibilities of clearing their table.

Campers that require a special diet will be charged an additional $50.

Some meals during each session may have a special theme. Special themes may include; dress as you favorite Sports Team, wear a hat, Twins – either dress as a Minnesota Twin or as “twins” with a cabinmate(s), Super Hero, Pirates, or Backwards.

Birthdays at Camp

For every birthday that occurs during the camping period, there is a birthday treat served for sharing with cabinmates as well as lots of recognition from the Camp community. We encourage you to send birthday cards to your child. You will not be able to speak with your child on their special day so plan ahead with your birthday correspondence.

Camper Cabin Time

Following devotions each evening, Counselors are excused for free time away from the cabin area. During this time Campers remain in their cabins and are supervised by several adult Staff members and various Counselors who patrol the cabin area. The patrol staff responds to Camper needs and concerns, as well as making spot checks from time to time. Campers are advised on the first evening as to the procedure to notify patrol staff when necessary. Cathedral of the Pines believes that this 1 to 2 hour time period each night enhances cabin community and offers cabinmates a chance to better bond within a safe environment as well as offering the Counselors a short break.
