Tent living is a defining feature of the Solelim experience. Each tent can accommodate up to six campers and most tents will have a mix of Rookies and Posts. Every tent is assigned one or two staff as “tent parents;” and while they do not live in the tent with the campers, tent parents are responsible for checking in with their campers daily and for organizing special tent time activities throughout the summer. Made with a concrete base and a wood frame, our tents are sturdy and comfortable. All of our canvas tents are equipped with beds, electricity, windows, and a rain fly, making them a cozy summer home.
WHY OUR CAMPERS LOVE LIVING IN TENTS
Living in smaller groups and within different age groups breaks down social cliques and creates a positive sense of community
Having no counsellors in the tent promotes independence and responsibility
Tent living brings campers closer to nature – nothing compares to falling asleep to rain beating down on the canvas, or waking up to the smell of fresh dew and birch trees!
