Interaction with guests

As host and director of the camp, I live in a house on the grounds. I’ll be here to check you in, or one of our friendly staff will help you get settled. During your stay, either I or one of our staff (who live only a few miles away) will be on call to assist you with anything you might need. I’m very easy going and enjoy getting to know the interesting people that pass through here. Though I generally keep to myself so you can enjoy taking in the sights, don’t hesitate to say “hello!” or ask about our camp. I’d be happy to facilitate any activity for your group with enough prior notice.

You can reach me by Airbnb messages, e-mail or my cell phone (text or call).

Other things to note

Don’t feel like cooking? Let us do it for you! Our cooks can whip up your favorite meals in our dining hall. As a camp and retreat center we are used to catering large groups, and small private meals. If you’re interested in meals, we’ll need at least a week’s notice so we can plan the menu and order food.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit camp and we use money earned from these activities to help fund our summer programming for youth of all ages and adults with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities.

As One of our cabin’s is Pet Friendly, there is a chance that there there may be a small dog on campus during your stay though it should remain on a leash so as to not interrupt your visit.

Let me warn you from the beginning -- this is not a private house. But it is something much bigger and much interesting. You get a full house in the camping village, with possibility to make your grill, rent a boat, swim in the pool, discover the big green territory, participate in various activities, etc. etc! I could not imagine discovering such a place in such an unexpected location. Justin's place is a MUST to stop if you're going through Kansas. If you have a possibility to stay for more than one day -- even better. I would not even mention that in terms of cleanliness, communication, house staffing, etc. everything was just perfect!

Fantastic get away location. We thoroughly enjoyed having the whole place to ourselves for much of our stay. The rooms were tidy and there were plenty of amenities in the kitchen as well as extra blankets. Justin met us the first day and was very friendly. We were able to swim in the lake and the large pool multiple times each each day and have campfires and grill outside at night while watching beautiful Kansas sunsets across the lake. We will definitely stay again!

While I don't do it often, I was born with the craving to travel and explore! Now that I'm a full time Camp Director at White Memorial Camp and Retreat Center, I get to help others to explore and create their own adventures! When I'm not hosting a camp or Airbnb guests, I am performing in improv troupes, stand-up comedy shows and dinner theatre in northeast Kansas. Most nights, I take in the sunset over the lake and try new board games.

As an Airbnb host, I'm very easy going and adaptable. I like to provide a very laid back and relaxed visit. I will be on call for any requests you might have and I'm happy to facilitate the various activities that our cabin site offers if there's interest, otherwise I will stay out of your way so you can enjoy the wonderful natural surroundings in peace! Myself and the camp staff aim to give you a rustic retreat-style experience with a summer camp twist, sprinkled with nostalgia for good measure.
