Student Lodging at the Malibu Outdoor Science School
A very short walk from the campfire circle brings us to the cabin area. The cabins at Malibu are very nice and comfortable. Most were built just a few years ago. Each building includes a cabin on the left, one on the right, and a bathroom between the two. There is room for nine students and a cabin leader on each side. The pictures at the left of cabins 12/13 and 3/4 provide an excellent example of what most of the cabins look like.
Each cabin has five sturdy wooden bunk beds, providing space for nine students and one cabin leader to supervise the students. As you can see, there is LOTS of storage space for clothing, personal belongings, and luggage. High ceilings create a very spacious feel. Floors are tiled, making them easy to keep clean. The cabins are well-lit, insulated, and kept warm with central heat. These girls certainly seem to be happy with their comfortable lodging.
We ask the students to keep their cabin neat and clean throughout the week. Every day the Cabin Leader Coordinator inspects each of the cabins to see how presentable they are.
A bathroom is located between every two cabins, and contains four sinks, four private showers, and four toilet stalls. Some bathrooms have showers and toilets with wheelchair access. Just like the cabins, all bathrooms are heated.
