We’re delighted that Town & Country Magazine included Adirondack in their ‘Camps of Distinction’ by awarding us a merit badge (see Town & Country June/July 2012). We’ve been dubbed ‘Most Bare Bones’, but actually, we’re rustic by design! Once Adirondack campers have spent a summer in our open-air cabins, they’re sold. Electricity? Nope. Bathrooms in the cabin? No way. WiFi? Forget about it. What we have instead are unbelievable lake views, fresh mountain breezes, and a front row seat to twinkling night skies. It’s simplicity at its finest, and it’s at the heart of who we are, what we do, and why we’ve been known for extraordinary childhood adventures for over one hundred years.
“I spent 8 wonderful summers, 8 weeks each, in Adirondack; and the memories, the principles, the love of the outdoors that I absorbed while I was there have never left my subconscious. I can still, as I reach 60 , close my eyes and smell, in my mind, the air, full of pine and Lake George smells, and feel the wind…. Adirondack had a great influence on me, maybe as much as my College and High School….”
—John F., former Adirondack Camper
