What They Say About ADK
Will came back full of stories and a real sense of accomplishment from having been away for four weeks, and having achieved better skills in swimming. He loved his cabin mates and counselors, and that gives him the confidence to push himself. I was so happy to see he had signed up for the hike with his cabin—something he may not have done if he were home. Parent of Will F, Camper
Intermediate campers are 10-12. Intermediates are the heart of summer residential camp. Happy and thriving, they appreciate simple pleasures with a carefree attitude and you can hear their shouts of delight everywhere.Video: favoriteThings
A principal goal for our intermediate summer camp boys and camp girls is that they discover the activities about which they are most passionate. Our program director, with the support of camp counselors, will work with kids to design a schedule that encourages trying new things but also reinforces skills and allows them to “specialize” where they’ve found an activity that really “wows” them.
Adventure wilderness trips eligibility for Intermediates include the Lake George 5, Reflections, Fire-tower series, Wild Waters, Northville-Lake Placid Trail, and certain of the 46er High Peaks.
Intermediate call to quarters is 8:30 with lights out at 9 pm.
