Our staff training begins in mid June, and our campers arrive towards the end of June. There are five 24 hour days off during the summer, and our staff often goes to nearby Montreal, Quebec, Burlington, Vermont, or Lake Placid, New York for days off. All are within an hour and a half from camp.

We are anxious to get your application so please review the material, fill out our application and we will review it as soon as it arrives via email. To ensure its arrival, please call us within 48 hours to follow up at 1-800-487-3866.
