“Win together, lose together, play together, stay together.” – Debra Mancuso

We make every effort to work with you and your group to design and achieve the perfect camp experience and our 4 core areas outline  ways that we can achieve this.

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. 

“Your staff are so very attentive and courteous – I hope they find us to be good guests. We so appreciate their kindness, professionalism and attention to detail as well as their understanding of our mission.” – Phil (Director of residential programs)

Experience – Adventure based fun 

Student activities will take advantage of the vast resource of the Adirondack State Park. Activities such as hiking, climbing and canoeing will be at the core of what we offer. Students will learn how to work together, navigate the wilderness and develop leadership skills.  Introduce your students to activities that they might not normally be exposed to. Our fantastic Archery range can help teach concentration, control, perseverance, attention and focus. Our 40ft climbing wall with 6 different routes can help build confidence, trust, physical strength and determination. A growing sport that is suitable for all ages and levels of experience. With our own private 25 acre lake we can introduce students to the boating activities of canoeing and kayaking. The benefits of learning to canoe with a partner can help with trust and teamwork.  Our vast trail network with various spectacular views, outposts and secret hidden spots will prove exciting for any level adventurer. With access to many facilities available all in one location your students can experience new ideas and interests they would not normally have access to.

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.
