    Overview

    Woodcraft offers a supportive environment where trying something new and growing to reach your own personal goals is celebrated. With a focus on individual instruction, campers work towards a series of achievement badges throughout their time at Adirondack Woodcraft Camps. Summer campers of all ages can earn badges in every field from swimming to wilderness skills. Because some achievements take several years to complete, the staff keeps an on-going record of progress.

    Woodcraft offers a supportive environment where trying something new and growing to reach your own personal goals is celebrated. With a focus on individual instruction, campers work towards a series of achievement badges throughout their time at Adirondack Woodcraft Camps. Summer campers of all ages can earn badges in every field from swimming to wilderness skills. Because some achievements take several years to complete, the staff keeps an on-going record of progress from year-to-year. Every time a camper earns a new badge an announcement is made in front of the entire camp, giving the camper an unmatched sense of pride and achievement. Campers leave Woodcraft with a true sense of accomplishment and carry that confidence with them back home. 

    Every age group embarks on wilderness exploration trips and overnights during their stay at Woodcraft. The length and challenge of each trip grows along with the campers age and skill level. Every Wednesday is Trip Day. Campers choose from day adventures like Canoe the Moose, Climb Bald Mountain, Hike & Paint En Plain Air, Bike to McCauley Mountain, and many more! To prepare for their overnight camping adventures, campers work with their counselors and the program director to plan their epic group trip. It could be a canoe pack trip on the Fulton Chain of Lakes, a high peaks backpacking trip, or an overnight adventure to one of our favorite Lean Tos. 

    Each morning, the AWC staff publishes a schedule of each age groups’ activities for the day. Activities include instructional swim, kayaking, canoeing, archery, nature & wildlife, arts & crafts, sports, mountain biking, outdoor leadership skills, paddle boarding, and more. In the afternoon, campers select from week-long choice workshops and daily rotating choice activities. This allows campers to work on skills they most want to improve and to have fun where they want to spend extra time with friends.
