Meals at Camp


Camp Abnaki offers a variety of options for meals for your group. Meals are served in our spacious Turrell Dining Hall. We are happy to provide you with home-style meals at a low cost. 


Our Food Services Director has over 20 years experience at camp, and is renown for her fresh-baked desserts.  Our menu always includes a variety of options, including fresh fruits and salads. We will cater to any dietary restrictions or needs, customizing the menu to your event.


Just need a light snack? Coffee and tea service is available for a low cost. We can also provide lighter food fare for when a big meal is not needed.


We also provide the option to rent our kitchen facility for a flat fee. This allows you to bring in your own food service provider such as catering companies or to cater your own function.


In need of a catering company? We will provide you with some trusted, local companies that we have worked with in the past.

Overnight Lodging


Lodging is available in our 24 cabins.  Each cabin can sleep 8-12 people.  Our cabins are rustic, but each cabin has electricity.  The cabins are arranged in four villages, each with 6 cabins and a small fire pit.


Each village has a conveniently located wash house with toilets, sinks, and showers with plenty of hot water. Each of our villages provide a distinct experience:


Mehkoa Village is located near the heart of camp, with insulated cabins that

sleep up to 8 people in one large room.


Tamakwa Village is located near the Dining Hall, with non-insulated cabins that

sleep up to 8 people in one large room.


Madewehsoos Village is tucked in the woods near the basketball courts.  These

non-insulated cabins  feature a semi-private sleeping area separate from the main 

room of the cabin.  These cabins sleep up to 10 people.                                                                                                                                                                                    

Chippewadchu Village is located on a hill at the edge of camp.  These non-insulated

cabins sleep up to 12 people, with two semi-private rooms.


Overnight guests should plan to provide their own toiletries and bedding.  If your guests are feeling more adventurous, we allow on-site tenting at a reduced cost.
