Overview

Adirondack Camp is a privately owned, coed children’s summer camp located in upstate NY on Lake George. Boys and girls ages 7-16 enjoy our summer program, including multiple out-of-camp trips into the park.

Trip staff work as a team to lead our impressive array of out-of-camp trips. From day hikes to five-day wilderness backpacking and canoe trips into the Adirondacks, trippers are out of camp more than they’re in. Trip staff is responsible for planning and leading every aspect of trips so that campers have safe, unforgettable experiences. These responsibilities include driving camp vans and organizing equipment and food.
