Water Sports Program

Simply put, Adirondack Camp has one of the most extensive water sports camp programs for kids in the United States.

Our kids’ camp is surrounded by water. What better place for kayaking, windsurfing, or sailing? Adirondack Camp has an extraordinary 1 and 1/2 miles of waterfront on the northern end of Lake George in Upstate NY — one of the most clean, clear, and beautiful lakes in the country.

Take an expansive waterfront, five separate swimming areas, two wide open bays and a half dozen ports of call for a fleet of windsurfers, sailboats, SUPs, kayaks, canoes, waterski and wakeboats — nearly 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 is Adirondack’s fleet — from the sleekest aerodynamic windsurfers to racing sailboats to high performance, 450 horsepower waterski-boats. 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.

Our summer camp offers liquid adventure for all ages, interests, and ability levels.

There are a ton of things to do on this lake. Whether that be reeling in the tastiest catch of the day while 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, earning your “Skipper” in time for the sailing race with the Lake George Yacht Club across the way, cutting across the wakes as you waterski, riding the waves on a wakeboard, 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, sunbathing on Spider Rock, or becoming a full fledged Red Cross approved lifeguard, there is a string of adventures at Adirondack Camp waiting for you.
