Our Summer Camp: Hard to Spell, Easy to Love
Imagine a summer camp in the Adirondacks that combines all of this every single day:
- Unmatched beauty of our north shore location on one of the great Adirondack Lakes
- Self-discovery that starts with exceptional counselors and instructors
- Delight that comes from realizing previously unknown talents and skills
- Adventure that comes from trying brand new things with lots of support
Imagine all this happening, when all you expected was a great time:
- Together we build a sense of real community, beginning with sportsmanship
- Together we create a secure and supportive environment, based on mutual respect
- Together we form warm and lasting friendships . . . because we’re really nice
And that great time you expected happens every day.
