What They Say About ADK
I would not nearly be the person I am if it weren’t for Camp! Camp taught me to respect people no matter what, to listen, to believe in myself and others, and to open myself up to new experiences. Camp really helped me develop as an individual, and throughout the years when I have excelled in school and/or extracurriculars, I accredit that success to the lessons I learned at Adirondack!

Among the most intrepid campers at our summer overnight camp, Seniors are 13–15. Our summer camp teens are amazing! Accomplished and bold, they know what they want to do and have a blast while doing it. Unlike typical teenagers, we find that our senior summer camp girls and camp boys are inclusive and empathetic toward their younger camp “brothers and sisters." Being a senior at Adirondack carries with it stature and responsibility. Activities, competitive games and special events are structured, in part, to enable seniors, particularly, to stretch their skills and temperament to meet successively mounting challenges. Here’s where a camper can decide to specialize and even to teach younger campers some of the tricks of the trade. All adventure wilderness trips are open to seniors, including highly challenging Ranger trips. There is a special cabin for 15-year-old girls. This is the only enclosed camper cabin with full walls and electricity.
Call to quarters for Seniors is 9 pm with lights out at 9:30.
