All campsites have modern shower facilities.

The modern health lodge is staffed 24-hours a day by qualified personnel for treating minor issues.
The shooting ranges offer an open-shoot for Scouts and Leaders most evenings.
Camp Powhatan's Trading Post offers many items one may have forgotten to bring as well as a variety of Camp Powhatan items. The Trading Post also has a snack bar offering cold drinks, ice cream, and hot food.
A large, well-equipped dining hall serves three meals daily during camp. Coffee is available for Leaders.
