- About CBS
The Main Deck:
This is one of the oldest facilities in camp, built by the Army during World War II. This building serves as our primary large group meeting room, capable of seating more than 250 occupants. Dimmensions of main room: 40’ x 34’. Around the building there are several side rooms which are used as small seminar rooms for study groups. In the back part of the Main Deck we have our Snack Shack which is our general store. T-shirts, sweatshirts, candy, drinks, postcards, books, are all available for our guests. We also offer various toiletries and necessities like instant cameras, film, flashlights, batteries, toothbrushes, toothpaste, prepaid calling cards, etc.
The largest building in camp, the Lighthouse serves primarily as our dining hall and kitchen. The dining area is split into an indoor area and an outdoor veranda. Meals are served “family style” at CBS; this means all the food is provided at each table to be passed around. The Lighthouse also has a seminar room and our camp office in addition to a staff lounge and dry food storage.
This modern, clean bathroom facility is centrally located in the camp to serve all of our guests. Hot showers, sinks and toilets are available.
We ask that our guests use discretion with water usage. We are located on a desert island and our water supply which comes from the island water storage system that is renewed by winter rains is rationed. Please limit showers to three minutes or less and only once per day.
The Crow’s Nest:Our newest building was completed in June 2006. It is a dividable structure that can serve many different size groups. The main space (42’ x 37’) has an advanced sound and video projection system. This building also houses our library and art gallery.
