Kabeyun is located on 85 acres at the south end of New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee, with nearly a mile of shorefront and two large sandy coves with beaches. Boys live in screened-in cabins, positioned along the shoreline and connected by wooded paths. Other buildings include four lavatories, all with flush toilets and two with hot showers; the dining hall and kitchen; the lodge with its stage for theatrics, pianos, ping-pong tables, and other games; the "jam shack" with keyboard and drum kit; the infirmary; the office with camp store; the photography building equipped for developing and printing; an archery range; the camp library with a varied selection of books; the woodworking shop with hand and power tools; and well-equipped leatherworking and pottery shops.
Our facilities also include four docks for swimming and boating, three clay tennis courts, three badminton courts, two ball fields, a basketball court, a sand volleyball court, a climbing wall, two overnight campsites and our initiative and challenge ropes course. Our boating fleet includes fourteen canoes, twelve kayaks, six rowboats, fourteen sailboats, a water ski boat, and a variety of sail boards for windsurfing.
In addition to the Winnipesaukee property we also own a small piece of wilderness on the Swift River in the White Mountains. This site is a popular base camp for overnight trips.

In 2006, former counselor and artist Bryce Berggren (visit his website here) created this map of Kabeyun. You can click to enlarge it — it's a large file (~1.5 mb), however, and at dial-up connection speeds might be unwieldy.
