All participants are assigned to live in common areas and work together during the entire session. Uvino and Worki Together: There is a value in the cabin living processes. By living, praying, and working together campers develop a sense of community. Cabin living is also an experience in developing leadership qualities and understanding democratic processes. Groups have a great deal of latitude in deciding the day's activities. By working together towards building consensus, campers have a unique opportuni- ty to develop lifelong skills in Christian living. Requesting a friend in your cabin: First time campers may be somewhat apprehensive about cabin assignments. Young people are encouraged to bring a friend to camp. Under most circumstances, we will not house together more than two youths from the same parish.

The staff reserves the right to house campers based on needs and numbers of campers. The housing decisions of the Camp Director are final.
