Why Traditional Overnight Camp – An overnight children’s camp is a crucial element in your child’s personal growth. It relieves stress and busyness, while drawing out and developing the individual. A traditional summer camp provides a holistic approach to skill building by offering full immersion in a wide range of activities.
First Timers – Overnight camp can be daunting for a first time camper. New places, new people, new things to do. First timers are assigned big brothers or sisters to make them feel welcome and help them out. They are toured around camp by their summer sibling, and shown the lay of the land. Cabins prepare welcome signs to make new campers feel at home. Our counselors are trained to tend to the needs of their campers, and our entire program is based on the foundation of being “a safe place.”
Our Campers – Campers love Adirondack. Each summer 180 – 200 boys and girls come from across the United States and around the world to spend their time playing, swimming, learning, and growing together. Our international summer camp is comprised of children from America, Canada, England, Japan, Korea, Russia, Ukraine, China, Mexico, and more. Seventy-five percent of our campers return for another summer!
Rustic For A Reason – Adirondack is a traditional camp, not only because of the activities offered…it is a hallmark of who we are. We intentionally remove the many technological crutches kids become so dependent on, and let them experience the wonder of the world around them.
Food, Health & Safety – Food, health, and safety are three of the most important aspects of camp. Our kitchen staff, under the expert eye of Chef Carlo, prepares delicious, nutritious summer camp food that meets the needs of every palate. Our infirmary is staffed with a Registered Nurse at all times, and we are located 15 minutes from the Moses-Ludington Hospital. Every member of our swim staff is Red Cross certified, and campers are given swim tests and personal instruction to ensure safety in the water. All wilderness and trekking staff are trained in First Aid and overseen by our licensed Adirondack Guide.
Secrets To A Great Camp Summer Camp Staff – Our staff are the men and women who make our girls’ and boys’ camp work. Many of them are already parents, who love being with children and helping them grow. Our counselors are cautiously recruited and carefully interviewed to determine their maturity and work-ethic. All counselors must attend a nine day leadership training program. The secret to a great children’s camp is a great camp staff.

Whether, you’re a parent getting ready to send your child for their first time at summer camp, or sending them for the last time, we’re here for you. Overnight summer camps for kids only work when the parents feel assured their children are safe. At Adirondack, this is what we strive for. We want parents to feel secure, and camp boys and camp girls to feel comfortable and happy. This is what makes our kids camp work.
