BE CLEAN — BOTH YOURSELF AND THE PLACE YOU LIVE IN.
Ogichi’s spacious cabins are divided into two sides with a shared common room between them. Each side houses six to eight campers and two staff members. Younger campers live in cabins with limited electricity and bathrooms; older girls live in cabins with no electricity, and share a washhouse with those in another cabin.
After breakfast, each girl is responsible for tidying up personal and shared spaces. A cabin inspector motivates each cabin group with the coveted Clean Cat honor and good-natured Dirty Dog distinction. Dirty Dogs are given extra opportunities to practice cleanliness, and can sometimes be found singing and dancing as they clean the Dining Hall.
