We have the grounds, facilities and accommodation to work with groups from as small as 20 and up to 200. Perhaps you are an athletic team looking for a pre-season coaching camp and some time spent together bonding as a team or a school group looking for a safe, accessible wilderness adventure. Whatever your group and whatever your reason, we would love to work with you to achieve your goal. We are located in the beautiful Adirondack Park with easy access from I-87, situated directly between the towns of Warrensburg and Chestertown.

Explore: Environmental Ecology
Research has shown that the more we understand about our surroundings the more we understand about ourselves. Students will have the opportunity to learn about their natural environment while also learning about their role within our ecosystem. Conveniently located close to the 89 and yet secluded at the end of a private road, privacy and safety are assured amidst stunning landscape in the Adirondack Mountains. With over 800 acres of private land, 20+ miles of hiking and biking trails and our own private lake the possibilities to introduce your students to nature based activities are endless. Map reading, orienteering, natural sciences and outdoor skill based learning can introduce them to life skills that will help them grow, increase confidence, and separate your students from the busy social network of the digital world. We can cater activities to unique school curriculums or offer several popular options for your exploration.
Grow: Team Building and Character Development
Student activities will focus on teaching them how to make healthy decisions, form and maintain strong relationships and take positive risks. Workshops and activities will help students raise aspirations, and create physically and emotionally safer school climates. With a variety of activities from geo-caching, low ropes course, spiders web and giants finger we have a variety of different scenarios and circumstances that your students can engage in and work together as a team. With ice-breakers to relax a group they will realize that team building is fun for everyone. We also include feedback sessions tailored to help the group understand that constructive feedback is good and nothing to be afraid of. Finally, our lake can be used for numerous activities including raft building and blind canoe exercises to allow students to express themselves and also to learn to trust themselves as well as others.
