Away from the pools, the next best place to be at dive camp is definitely our Camp House!! This home-away-from-home is a 29,000 square foot mansion. Campers, counselors, guest coaches, interns and other staff call this amazing place home during their stay.
This house has many lounges, dance room, bike room, offices, large bathrooms on each hallway, a main assembly room where we have all our meetings, videos, and guest lectures. We also have a pool table, a courtyard with a basketball court, volleyball net, campfire area, and a large field next door where we play games, conduct fireworks shows, and have our famous, ginormous Slip’n’Slide.
Among the sports camps at IU, our Camp House is definitely the envy of all campers. Rather than simply lodge our campers in the dorms, we’ve found the Camp House affords campers many more opportunities for fun, unity to grow, and the best environment for friendships to be nurtured!!
Our Camp House is completely safe with locks on all outside doors. Furthermore, the guys and girls floors are completely separate, monitored, and locked after lights out. Room checks are also completed nightly.
The Camp House includes 26 spacious and air-conditioned bedrooms. Each bedroom is outfitted with twin-size beds complete with mattress and frame. Our beds are a mixture of bunkbeds and traditional beds. We have 4 sizes of bedrooms (small, medium, large and extra-large). Depending upon the size of your bedroom you may have between 1-5 roommates. We will never exceed fire-code for the number of people per bedroom. Each room also contains a desks and dressers for our campers’ home-away-from-home.

We have two kitchens, a dining hall and our own personal Camp Chef! The smaller kitchen is for coaches, counselors and staff. The large industrial kitchen is where our professional Camp Chef prepares all the meals for those hungry campers!!

Parents Staying In the House:
This camp is proudly PIC (Programs Involving Children) certified. Every adult residing in the camp house is background checked. Due to this strictly enforced policy, we are unable to allow parents to reside overnight in the camp house as we are not able to background check the camper’s parent. Parents are welcome to join us for each activity including meals in the camp house during awake hours. Awake hours are 7:00 AM – 9:00 PM. Parents are welcome to stay in one of the many local hotels or even camp nearby!
