Things were jumping this weekend up at camp. Thanks to everyone who came up to help during the work weekend. Only 26 days till summer 2012!
We’re cranking up our annual Adirondack Camp Family Work Weekend and you’re invited! Come on up and enjoy a weekend on Lake George with other camp families. We’ll provide the cabin and the meals in exchange for your help in getting camp ready for the summer.
Families will stay together in our cabins, and delicious meals will be provided in the mess hall. We’ll pitch in to do work projects during the morning and afternoon, including raking leaves, planting flowers, and cleaning windows. At night, we’ll roast marshmallows around the campfire under the dazzling starry skies of the Adirondacks.
Our Work Weekend is a terrific opportunity for new campers to learn their way around camp, meet our Directors and get to know some of our counselors.
Please RSVP so we can hold your bunk. Families are welcome to attend for all or part of the weekend. We hope to see you there!

I loved all my counselors because they listened to you when you felt homesick and always tried to help me solve my problems. They also made everything seem fun.
I’ve been living in Wellington, New Zealand for the last two and a half years and am now on my way back to camp. We’ve visited Bangkok, Hanoi, Vietnam and Cambodia, and along the way we’ve had amazing food, met lovely people, and cruised Halong Bay by boat. It’s been intense, exhausting, overwhelming and wonderful. We’re heading to Don Det, Laos, where the pastimes are hammock swinging, book reading and leisurely bicycle rides along the Mekong river. After Laos, we’re back to Thailand and then to the US. We’ll have about a week with my family and to recuperate from the jet lag before we’re onto the next stop of our adventure, camp!
This will be my 15th summer at Adirondack and I am excited to be back with all of my new experiences to share. After 6 weeks travel through unfamiliar cultures, languages and lands camp seems the perfect place to ground myself again. I am so looking forward to sharing an amazing summer with all of you, to be back in my home away from home and to have more adventures!
