School Season: Is the group expected to help clean up at the end of their stay?

Your assistance with clean up helps keep our rates affordable. We ask that each group take all dirty linens to the laundry, fold all blankets, bag any trash, return furniture that may have been moved to its original location and sweep the cabins and lounge areas of each dorm. In addition, a general camp sweep of all common areas for trash and lost and found items would be appreciated.
