ADK Watersports: Watersports Camp
Simply put, Adirondack Camp has one of the most extensive water sports camp programs for kids’ summer camps in the United States. Why not take advantage when our kids’ camp is surrounded by water? What better place for a kayaking camp, windsurfing camp, or sailing camp? Among other water camps, Adirondack is blessed with an extraordinary one and a half mile waterfront on the northern end of Lake George in Upstate NY, one of the most clean, clear, beautiful lakes in the country.
Take an expansive waterfront, spread out the four secured swimming areas of our summer swim camp, two wide open bays and a half dozen ports of call for a fleet of windsurfers, sail boats, rowboats, kayaks, canoes, waterski-boats—almost one boat for every two campers—and you have the makings of an exciting and diverse water sports camp program.
The teaching techniques are modern; and so, where it matters, as in the sleekest aerodynamic windsurfers or racing sailboats or big horse waterski-boats–is Adirondack’s fleet. The camp swimming and boating areas on the other hand, look like they have always looked–simple, wooden, rustic—keeping with our commitment to preserve and appreciate the natural beauty that surrounds us.
There are a ton of things to do on this lake, and our water sports camp offers liquid adventure for all ages, interests and ability levels. Whether that be reeling in the tastiest catch of the day while summer camp fishing, exploring Crazy Kate’s lair while snorkeling with kids from your cabin, rolling a kayak for the first time, walking on water at SUP camp, earning your first mate in time for the sailing race with the Lake George Yacht Club across the way, cutting the waves at water-ski camp, riding the waves at wakeboard camp, starring in the latest round of Marco Polo, swimming a mile across Lake George and back, saving a goal in the Intergalactic Water Polo Championship of the Stars, being selected for the fast and furious Adirondack War Canoe meet (for the advanced memebers of our canoeing camp), sunbathing on Spider Rock, becoming a full fledged Red Cross approved lifeguard–at any age and any skill–if there is a will, there is a string of adventures at Adirondack’s water sports camp waiting for you.Map
