The first thing you will see when you enter the FLC is the large foyer space. This is the perfect place for folks who want to spend their time reading a book, hanging out with friends, sipping coffee by the fireplace, and playing board games and card games with friends. The TV located just above the fireplace is the only cable TV service available at Hidden Acres. Click here for a channel list (see Basic Package).
Also located in the foyer are the Snack Shop and Gift Shop. These two areas can only be operated by Hidden Acres staff. They are open most weekends; we match our hours to rental groups' scheduled free time (commonly Saturday afternoon and evening). Snacks vary in price from $0.25-$3.50, small gifts range from $1 to $8, t-shirts range from $10 to $25, and sweatshirts range from $20 to $40. You can pay for your items with cash, check, or credit card. If these areas are closed during your retreat, most Gift Shop items are available online at store.hacamps.org, and the FLC has candy and drink vending machines that are always available.
GYM & POOL
Two of the most popular areas in the FLC are the gym and indoor swimming pool. The gym has a full court that can be split into two half-courts by a curtain. It is the perfect spot for a quick game of basketball or a large group activity. If requested, we can set up volleyball nets or dodgeball supplies, too. Off to one side of the court is a "stage area" where we can set up free-time games like Carpetball or 9-Square. Two large ball bins, full of basketballs, volleyballs, soccerballs, and more, are located in this area.
The pool room has a 70' x 30' heated indoor swimming pool that slopes from 3 to 5 feet in depth. Nearby is a 3-foot deep hot tub that can accommodate up to 16 guests at one time. We do have a pool lift for children with special needs. If you would like this set up for your group, contact your Retreat Director before you arrive at camp.
GAME ROOM & GOOD ROOM
Just off of the foyer of the FLC is a game room. This room includes vending machines, billiard boards, ping pong tables, foosball, giant jenga, and a game cupboard. There's also plenty of booth-style seating for hanging out with friends or playing a board game or card game.
Next door is a meeting room called the Good Hospitality Room or the "Good Room," for short. The Good Room is great for small meetings or break outs. It contains a kitchenette with a sink, fridge and freezer, oven, and microwave that make it a perfect spot for a quick snack. A door leads from the Good Room directly outside to a fire-pit area perfect for campfire songs and s'mores.
