Communal bathrooms (also called the communal washrooms) are a notable location on Camp Wawanakwa and the abandoned film lot. They are the bathroom and toilet facilities which is shared by both genders. On occasion, the communal bathrooms will play a small role in challenges.
The communal bathrooms on Camp Wawanakwa include rows of toilet cubicles, shower cubicles, and sinks. The facilities are not separated by gender, and usually the different sexes wait for their turn.

In Hide and Be Sneaky, during a flashback, Leshawna, Heather, and Gwen are using the communal bathrooms, while DJ and Owen are waiting outside listening. Heather proceeds to turn on the cold water while Gwen is using the shower, causing her shower water to be too hot. Leshawna retaliates by slapping Heather and the two girls fight.

In Hook, Line, and Screamer, Heather decides to ignore Gwen's warnings and have a facial during the "horror movie" challenge.

The sight utterly terrifies him, despite Heather trying to calm him down and he ends up running through the closed door, leaving a hole behind. Gwen then arrives to check out the screaming. Heather declares she would take a shower, which Gwen is about to advise against. However after she remembers it's Heather, Gwen decides to let Heather do whatever, and mockingly comments that her current appearance suits her. As Heather is about to take a shower, she hears someone being outside.
