    The A-frame cabins are equipped with ceiling fans and screened windows all around; Woodcrafters sleep practically in the open air. They each have a center bin, wardrobe and athletic bin for personal items.

    Cabins house up to 12 Woodcrafters and a counselor. Each group of five cabins comprises a unit, which also includes a head counselor and three assistant counselors. The head counselor is your main point of contact and is equipped with a telephone and email.

    A progressive achievement

    There are three distinctive awards – the Bronze, Silver and Gold “C’s,” which encourages all-round development. To earn the Culver “C”, Woodcrafters must obtain a certain number of points in every phase of camp – inspections, drill, athletic participation and daily points – in addition to such basic requirements as good citizenship and cleanliness of personal items and themselves.

    Progressive achievement is emphasized and recognized in the Culver “C” plan. The requirements for each medal are increasingly difficult. The Gold “C,” carrying with it graduation and admittance into the Culver Summer Schools Alumni Association (CSSAA), represents two or more summers of achievement.
