“We very much enjoyed the concept of multi-generational family get-together. Actually, the weekend served a dual purpose of spending significant time with our children and grandchildren but also providing an outlet for discussion regarding the roles we play as Jewish grandparents in our youngsters’ lives.”

Accommodations
Cabins

Multi Family Cabin

Cabins are spacious and nestled throughout the campus. Each cabin offers a dorm-style bunking area and private twin rooms. Linens are provided but beds are not made up. Some cabins are single-family with a private bunk room and bathroom for your family, others are shared cabins where two families share a bathroom area and bunk beds but parent rooms are still private. Requests for single vs. shared cabin styles are first come, first served but not guaranteed. Cabin reservations are available for parties with three paid participants or more. For all cabins, linens are provided, but beds are not made up.

Hotel Rooms

We have four hotels on our campus. All hotel rooms have a private bathroom, a table and two chairs, heating and air conditioning, complimentary toiletries and bed and bath linens.

Standard Hotel Rooms

 

Marcus Lodge (ML) and Mountainside Hotel (MSH) hotels are located up a steep hill with stairs, boardwalk and walking paths to the main areas of the campus. These standard hotel rooms each have a bathtub shower. Some connecting rooms are available. 

The Welcome Center (WC) and Lakeside Hotel (LH) hotel rooms are larger with either two queen beds or one king bed and a deluxe tub. Some connecting rooms are available.

The Welcome Center is an easy, flat walk to the Levine Center where meals are served and most of the action takes place. The Lakeside Hotel is up a steep hill close to the lake and not far from the Levine Center.

Cottages
