Surprise Lake: Moral Courage Workshop

Coldspring, NY


Surprise Lake Camp has provided a haven for Jewish children in the picturesque mountains of Cold Spring, NY. What makes SLC the best is the beauty of the site, the richness of the people and the program, the sense of history and tradition, and the magic we create.

Surprise Lake Camp (SLC) has approximately 475 campers at any given time.  The camp is divided into 2 sides, Mainside and Teenside.  Mainside is for campers in grades 2-7, and Teenside is from grade 7 up until 15 years old.  Mainside and Teenside function separately most of the time.  They each have their own waterfronts, dining rooms, sports fields, etc. 

Mainside has the climbing tower and ropes courses and gymnasium (which Teenside does not) and Teenside has a small golf program (which Mainside does not).  The two sides of camp get together for Shabbat morning services and for special camp-wide events and performances once or twice a week.
