Some of our families refer to ISTC as a country club for kids, which is a fair assessment given the amount of activities and space for our sports programs! This blog post provides an overview of our facility and dives into some key points about many of the major locations.
Overview: The map above depicts the entire 500-acre property at ISTC! The lake, sports facilities, and cabins are all considered part of our private property, giving the ISTC experience an exclusive feel. Most buildings and activity spots can be accessed via the long, pavement path that stretches the majority of camp, which makes progressing through the daily schedule easy.
Cabins: While our cabins (buildings 1-15 on the map) span the property in various locations, they each contain the same amenities. The bunk beds, mattresses, and other furniture are consistent from cabin to cabin; each has their own indoor bathrooms, sinks and showers. Their sizes vary from 15-25 total beds, meaning small groups of friends can stick together while also meeting new people.
Sports Areas: All programming is done onsite, meaning campers will truly explore most of the facility during their time at ISTC. The Waterfront (WF) includes the jet skiing, banana boating, and other inflatables. The Ropes Course (RC) involves the climbing tower, zip line, and giant swing elements. Mountain Biking (MTB) starts at the pavilion but then branches off to different areas around the property. And in between all of these things, campers will have sports sessions at either set of fields (ASF, UF, UFD). Our schedule is built on variety, so campers will rotate through all of the different activities and locations across the week’s schedule.
Common Areas: Aside from the living and sports areas, there are a few locations that all campers and staff will visit frequently. Namely, the Dining Hall (LVC) is used for breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day whereas the Boathouse (BH) is home to our canteen or camp store during recreation times. The Fieldhouse (FH) is also a popular space, as it used for several camp events and houses our basketball courts.
Our schedule is a mix of structured activity sessions and open recreation times, meaning campers will inherently visit all of our activity spaces and can even revisit their favorites during the week.
