The heart of the camp experience

The bunk is where campers build relationships, learn teamwork, responsibility, and experience the freedom of living away from home. Cabin Nights are a weekly Camp Tall Timbers tradition, giving campers special time to really bond with each other and their counselors.

We are celebrating 50 Fabulous Years of Fun at Camp Tall Timbers this summer.

Bunk Living

Our campers live in comfortable, modern cabins with electricity, bathroom and shower facilities. Campers have ample room to store all their belongings on shelves in the cabin. In each group, we have approximately 8 campers and a minimum of 2 senior counselors. Cabin counselors eat, sleep and interact with their campers, fostering a strong sense of camaraderie and fun.

Older campers (completed 8th grade) may team up with buddies in a 14’ X 16’ tent equipped with electricity.  These campers have their own shower facilities.

 

Safety

Your children’s safety at camp is our top priority.

Our ACA accreditation ensures we maintain a safe, quality environment for our campers and staff. We make sure to have an overall supervisor for all specialized activities, who is a certified adult with experience and documented training. We uphold strict operating procedures.  All water activities are managed with certified lifeguards.

Medical coverage includes a Registered Nurse 24/7, and our well-equipped infirmary is ready to handle any situation around the clock. Campers’ medication is stored under lock and key as required by the American Camp Association and is brought to campers at the time called for by doctor’s instruction. All of our medical staff are licensed by the State of West Virginia.
