    • New Activity – FUTSAL!

  • Cabin Renovations Complete!

    Posted January 17, 2016

    Exciting things are happening at Awosting this winter! Teams of workers have transformed all of our cabins with some major upgrades:

    • New pine wood paneling on the cabin interior walls
    • New windows
    • Ceiling fans in most cabins, for better ventilation
    • New white bathrooms, including new sinks and vanities
    • Additional storage in bathrooms for shower caddies

    Our facilities team have completed the last of the renovations and are getting the rest of the grounds ready for next summer. The best way to see the finished product is with a tour, but here are some teaser images until you can make it in person.
