Each condo unit is chaperoned by a camp counselor and is fully equipped to comfortably house six campers and one overnight staff member per unit.
When campers want to take a break from skating, there are other activities to try, including swimming, mountain biking, SUP (stand up paddleboarding), kayaking, tennis, and golf. All of these activities are all included in the Waterville Valley Freedom Pass, an activity pass included in all Waterville Valley lodging packages.
