Hunt Hill’s main campus consists of amphitheater, dorms, a shower house, barn dining hall and loft, library, nature store, program learning center garage, farmhouse office, kiosks, kids area and cooperation course.
Completed in 2012, Hunt Hill is thankful for all the generous donations that made our new amphitheater stage and seating a reality. With the help of Mike Lillyblad of Aagar Construction, along with the dedicated work of a few volunteers we were able to create stone terraced seating with grassy steps in the fall of 2011. In the summer of 2012, an anonymous donor stepped forward and paid for us to create our dream amphitheater stage. The stage is all cedar, has diagonal decking with a rounded front, an arched pergola roof, electricity and unique bench seating. It is surrounded by forest and overlooks Upper and Lower Twin lakes. It is a perfect location for wedding ceremonies, plays, summer concerts and more. The amphitheater is located between the Cross dorm and Square dorm near the start of the Frances Andrews Trail.
- Long Dorm—Sleeps 36. Seventeen rooms, fifteen of which sleep two and two of which sleep four (all single beds). Rooms 1 and 3, 2 and 4, 5 and 7, and 6 and 8 are connecting rooms. There are two washrooms (men and women) in Long Dorm.
- Cross Dorm—Sleeps 41. Four wings each have 8-10 single beds, and three ‘chaperone’ rooms have two singles beds each. There are two washrooms (men and women) and a lounge area.
The shower house provides additional toilets, trough sinks, and showers. There is a handicapped accessible toilet and shower located on the backside of the building – inquire in the office for the key.
The Barn has been converted into a Dining Hall that seats approximately 100 and has a full commercial kitchen.
The Barn loft serves as a meeting room that can sit 100 people comfortably. It is a great space to host dances and large gatherings.
Our rustic Library/Lodge holds 70 people. This is the perfect place for a wedding ceremony, meeting or just a nice place to relax. This building has a stone fireplace, piano, resource materials and newly refinished wood floors.
The Nature Store is open during camps or upon request and features local artist products, nature games, t-shirts, nature books and a variety of fun toys.
Program Learning Center Garage:
Our Program Learning Center Garage sits 150-200 people. This building does have a wood stove and is our winter program location. It also serves as the hub of Day Camp activities in the summer. We have several nature displays in the back of PLC where adults and children can learn more about our Northwoods home.
The first floor of the Farmhouse serves as our office. Normal business hours are 9am – 4pm Monday-Friday.
There are kiosks located along our driveway that runs through camp. The kiosks feature information related to Hunt Hill like upcoming events, local flora and fauna and local events. There are cubbies that store maps, program guides and other information.
White donation boxes are located on the 1st and 2nd kiosks in camp. Donations are greatly appreciated to help maintain our trails and camp.
The kids area is located down the hill, just south-west of the Program Learning center. It features a sandbox, picnic table and an eagle’s nest. An eagle scout project, the eagle’s nest is a small deck located just off the ground surrounding a few trees. Youth gather sticks in the woods and then weave them through the deck railings. When complete, it looks like a real eagle’s nest!
With the guidance of a Hunt Hill staff member, groups of all ages work together to solve cooperative puzzles and physical challenges. From switching order on the troll bridge without stepping off, to sneaking through a giant spider web, and fitting everyone inside a wooden box before the blizzard comes, the cooperation course encourages individuals to work together and communicate for the success of the whole. These obstacles build community and cooperation between individuals. The course is great for adults as well.
Please note: Facilities at Hunt Hill are not winterized at this time. Heat is available in the Program Learning Center.
