Overview

Adirondack Woodcraft Camp is an overnight summer program for boys and girls from ages 6-17. It offers a traditional camp program traditional summer camp program with an emphasis on outdoor leadership and wilderness living skills. Campers acquire the courage to take on new things as well as see the natural world with caring eyes.

Our setting in the Adirondacks gives us a place where children can be surrounded by nature, and step out our doors into pure lakes and unspoiled northern woods where they can trek and paddle into a special wilderness.

What these attributes mean is that children come here and they grow. They succeed in new ways, and grow in confidence. They grow in the courage to take on new things. They grow their horizons. The intimate camp setting and the presence of good counselors helps them with communication skills. Being away from home and finding success in their summer world helps encourage mature independence.

The camp grows one more important thing. It helps campers see the natural world with caring eyes.

Our next generation needs this skill, and it is hard to learn it in a book or a class. There is nothing like walking in the woods with a wild fawn, or feeling the beating heart of a frog in your hands to help reopen doors to the wild world that are too often closed in our modern world.
