Wanake has two cabin locations, the White cabins and the Pines cabins. Furnished with bunk beds each cabin will house a maximum of 14-16 people. Both cabin locations have electricity and changing rooms, and are a short walk to bathhouses. Pines cabins are strategically located and ventilated to keep them cooler in the summer months, while the White cabins have air conditioning.
Our retreat centers consist of two wings connected to a great room meeting space. Four rooms in each wing will accommodate up to 6 people (three twin-sized bunk beds) with a restroom and shower facilities in each wing. These spaces are air conditioned.
Optional One Night Sleepout Locations
The Rock Lodge features a Bouldering wall built into the structure on the ground level. (Bouldering is climbing horizontally rather than vertically as in rock climbing.) Campers climb up into the structure. The second floor is a picnic shelter about eight feet in the air.
Campers climb a built-in vertical ladder through a trap door into the bedrooms upstairs. Each bedroom can sleep up to 8. Hammock style beds hang from the ceiling of the structure as campers enjoy evening rests in the treetops. The top floor is completely enclosed for safety and security.
This traditional structure, patterned after the Adirondack Shelters of the Appalachian Trail, is like a three-sided log cabin with a screened in fourth side, making it mosquito-proof. These shelters do not have electricity. The smaller shelter houses 6 and the near-by larger shelter houses 10.
Wanake’s Adirondack Shelters are located in a shaded area near the Woods Shelter (which makes for a great “hang-out”, rain shelter, or gathering spot). The composting toilet (45-100 yards) and the hand washing (tooth brushing – face washing) station (45 yards) are also very close.
This completely enclosed cabin can sleep up to 12 in one room and 8 in another. It has a canvas roof, continuous peak skylight and a rustic feel of a cabin constructed by survivors of a near by airplane downing. Mosquito netting and screen doors make it mosquito proof. The sky lighting and wispy mosquito netting windows make for a well-lit interior by day.
Of course, this cabin does not have electricity. It is located near the composting toilet and the hand washing (tooth brushing – face washing) station (100-120 yards). The Survival Cabin also features a very nice campfire site complete with fire ring and seating logs.
