The Highlander Cabin Unit
At the heart of the Camp Highlander experience, and one of the several things that distinguish us, is our Cabin Unit. While we foster individual development and achievement, each camper belongs to a cabin unit, the friends, family and support system for their session at Camp Highlander.
Ten happy campers, along with a minimum of two cabin counselors, make up each of our tight-knit, gender-specific cabins. As a cabin family, the campers and staff members set out for daily adventures, enjoy exciting activities and explore this magical place called Highlander. While living, playing and working together, this cohesive group creates mutual respect and lifelong friendships.
