Our Facilities...

there's no place like home...

The first structure you will notice when you enter camp is our unique The clocktower at camp billingsclocktower. Built in the 1920's, the clocktower is the symbol of our camp. From here, we raise and lower our flag each day and meet for games, attendance, and socialization throughout the day.

From the clocktower lawn you can see our four tennis courts, our enclosed basketball and volleyball courts, our beach volleyball court, and our beautiful swimming area-complete with a shallow and deep end, five lap-swimming lanes, and three diving boards, including an eleven-foot high-dive tower.

Next to the swimming area and up a hill is our office, which sits beside our 250-seat dining hall. The dining hall is next to our recreation hall, Dartt Hall, which serves us very well for dances, rainy day program, our camp musical during third session, and various other activities. Off the porch of Dartt Hall is our Alumni Room, full of 100 years of pictures and memories of summer on Lake Fairlee.

over 100 years old...

Next to Dartt Hall is our well-equipped infirmary where our full-time registered nurse tends to injuries and illness. Adjacent to the infirmary is our maintenance building and hot water showers and girls junior row toilets.

Our always busy craft shop is located beside our campfire area, which sits next to the oldest cabin in camp, cabin fifteen, home to to the six fifteen-year old campers and two staff who live there during the summer.

Having been around since 1906, several of our buildings are also very old, including Pinewold (staff lodging), Sunnyside (staff lodging), the Guest House (staff lodging), and part of the dining hall. In fact, our camp is registered with the National Register of Historic Places in the United States.

Along with our buildings, we also have an archery range, an outdoor chapel and several fields for games, including Rainshadow field across the road with a backstop and homerun fence. Also across the road is the Harley Backpacking shed built in the early 1990's, our canoe and hiking trip center, our ropes course, and the home to our photography program.
