Great camps in the summer teach kids to go fish! Everyone is going to want to take Fishing at ADK! We’ll group up at the picnic table and head out on fishing adventures all around the peninsula. We’re going to be catching a lot of bass! And having WILD ADVENTURE periods! Maybe this year we’ll catch HERBIE! Come join me, MK, and Emma, your staff at the Fisherman’s Lounge!

English is my second language!

My name is Charles Belanger and this summer will be my fourth year at ADK. First as a staff. I was born in Canada and lived there for 15 years of my life. The reason why I started to go to ADK was because my family was moving to the United States the following year. My parents decided to send me there to introduce me to the American culture before we moved and so I could practice my English abilities. I am French-Canadian and going through camp 24/7 in English was challenging at first, but my bunk mates, counselors, and all the other kids did not judge me for it. Everyone was there to help me go through the day and have, in my opinion, the best summers of my life.

If anyone reading this message is considering going to ADK, listen to my advice and DO IT!!! You will soon realize that you are not the only person coming from outside the US and speaking a different language. In fact, many people on the staff team as well as campers come from all around the world! You will soon realize that after the first day, no one is from anywhere; everyone is just there enjoying each other’s company. Only a few times in your life do you have the occasion to bond with people from all around the world in a place that you will learn to love as if it was your own house. Trust my advice and join the ADK family. It is a decision that you will forever remember as one of your best decision in your life!

The Counselors

The counselors at ADK are amazing because they are your friends. You don’t think of them as guardians. You can go to them to talk about anything, like you would a good friend. You have so much fun with them, and honestly some of the best memories I’ve had at camp have been with counselors. They’re just great to be around, and when you just see them, you think, when I’m a counselor I want to be like that.

Martin & Esteban2

A great camp for kids offers a truly great fencing program, and Adirondack does just that. When a terrific fencing applicant surfaced who lives in Madrid, a light bulb went off! Martin Evans, Senior Boys’ Line Head from the UK, is currently working in Madrid. We connected the dots, and Martin and Esteban Garcia Miralles met and talked camp. Following a formal interview and reference checks, Esteban is joining us for the summer! Campers get ready; Esteban is a national award winning fencer. En garde!
