Base Camp serves as the Command Center for ZBASE staff and participants.
This multipurpose facility is the central hub of camp, supporting all other areas of the facility, as well as serving as a place for crews to connect, share, and prepare for their next ZBASE adventure. Base Camp will also provide guests with meals, supplies, shelter and multiple water-based recreational activities, as well as social gathering spaces. The ZBASE activity pool, pool house and amphitheater will all overlook beautiful Skiatook Lake.
Successful collaborations start with planning, preparation and communication – Base Camp will be the primary location where each trek begins and ends for ZBASE participants. Base Camp will include access to open waters of Skiatook Lake for boating, water sports, swimming, and scuba excursions and certification. It will also serve as the primary base for aquatic equipment distribution, such as jet skis, kayaks, sailboats, canoes, and fishing gear.
The ZBASE Trading Post, Health Lodge, Zink Lodge and Dining Hall are located at Base Camp, as are the outdoor sleeping sites, which are based on a traditional tent platform design. Adventure begins at Base Camp.
