Camp Cleanup

Parents and guardians bringing attendees are encouraged to share in these duties. However, attendees are free to go fishing, hiking or whatever in Beaver Creek Park - perhaps a shopping trip to Havre.



Cabins Available for YTC Attendees

There are 12 cabins on site. Each 20x24 with six bunk beds. The cabins are heated and have electricity. If used, the cabins will have to be swept, damp mopped and the bunks wiped down on Sunday prior to your departure. There is a $25 refundable cleaning deposit per person or $75/family.

We will be reserving - if needed - one of the cabins for instructors; one for an unattended boys barracks. This will leave at least 9 cabins. For those attendees who may wish to stay in a cabin, rather than bringing a camper, RV or tent. The cabin space will be assigned on a first come first served basis and you may be sharing with other attendees. You may apply as a group if you wish.

You will need to supply your own pillows, sleeping bags and bedding. You may bring a pad or air mattress.
