Campers live in wood cabins with their counselors. Bunk beds are used for sleeping. Separate stall, hot water showers, toilets and sinks are inside each cabin. Clothing and personal items are stored in closed faced dresser drawers. Electricity runs to all cabins. Significant investment in this area of camp is continually made to ensure children are housed in clean, quality dwellings.
Campers use specific laundry bags to collect clothing for washing. Washing is done once weekly from an outside contracted service. Clothes are washed and dried and returned within a one or two day turnaround period. This service is included in the tuition.
The Dining Hall
Med-O-Lark offers an extensive, buffet-style dining experience for all three meals. The wholesome assortment of quality prepared foods made each day ensures that there is always “something for everyone”. For vegetarians as well, there are always tasty choices. Campers can choose what they like, return as often as they want and sit anywhere in the dining hall. In addition, fruit, vegetables and pickles are available all day for campers on the dining hall deck. At 3:30 p.m. each activity day, the entire camp gathers for an afternoon snack or ice cream break. Snacks are periodically distributed during and after evening activities as well.
The Health Center
Med-O-Lark has a fully equipped health center located in the center of camp. At all times, it is staffed by medical professionals; registered nurses and EMT’s . Maine General Medical Center in Augusta is 25 minutes away.
