Canteen, Camp Store, Craft Room and Spending Money

The Canteen is our camp store.  This year we have remodeled our canteen! It is now across from the dining hall where the program office used to be. It features a larger space so there is more room for people to browse. There is also a coffee-drink space for people to socialize or sit and relax with a cup of your favorite drink. Stop by and see us!

The store is open on Sundays & Fridays during registration and pick-up.  We offer a variety of snacks, candy, soda pop, frozen drink (slushie-type), coffee, cappuccino or expresso, & personal items like tooth brushes, toothpaste, chapstick and deodorant for the forgetful camper or retreater. We also have sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats and other articles of clothing. We also have some novelty items like post cards, stuffed animals, mugs, sunglasses, etc.

What do I do with my Canteen money?

  1. At check-in, you or your child will deposit Canteen money into the camper’s account.  We accept cash, check, and credit cards.
  2. The Canteen account will be managed electronically using our accounting software.
  3. When your child makes a purchase at the canteen, the appropriate amount is deducted from their account.
  4. At the end of your child’s  or family’s program, any balance remaining in the Canteen account is reimbursed in the Dining Hall.

Frequently Asked Canteen Card Questions:

What if my child does not spend all of the money on his/her canteen cards? Canteen Reimbursement occurs at the end of each program in the Dining Hall. Simply bring your camper to the Dining Hall and any unspent money will be reimbursed.

Can my child bring cash to keep in his/her belongings and not turn into the Canteen account? No, they may not. The canteen account is designed to eliminate the possibility of theft and/or loss and keeping cash with them defeats this purpose. As an adult, you can use cash at the canteen.

How do I pay for crafts? The Canteen account is also used to pay for materials in the Craft Room during free-time.
