Chingachgook welcomes boys and girls 7-16 for one of the best experiences of their lives during a 1- or 2-week summer session. Learn team work, cooperation, and leadership. Sail, kayak, rock climb, archery, riflery, sports, arts, waterski, more!

The most beautiful place in the world: Camp Chingachgook, established in 1913, sits on the quiet east shore of Lake Goerge in the Adirondack State Park. With 200 acres bordering thousands of acres of forever wild Adirondack Forest Preserve, Chingachgook accesses more than 50 miles of trails along the lake and mountains summits.

Kids enjoy a wide variety of waterfront activities on Chingachgook's extensive shoreline with two 80-foot docks and a fleet of 90 sailboats, canoes, kayaks, rowboats, and waterski boats. Other facilities include tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts, softball and soccer fields, art, woodworking, and photography studios, rifle and archery ranges, high- and low- ropes courses, climbing tower, bouldering wall, dining hall, and hiking center. The health lodge is staffed 24 hours each day.

Bunk cabins accommodate 8 to 10 campers, a counselor, assistant, and counselor-in-training, and are arranged in separate units based on gender and age.

At Chingachgook, we design our programs to develop a child's mind, body, and spirit. The rhythm of Camp balances group activities with individual pursuits, and education with recreation.

Reserve your place on one of our Sunday Open House Tours! Each Sunday from April to the third week of June you can tour Chingachgook with the Camp Director and find out what makes our camp so special. To reserve you family's place on one of our tours please call 518-656-9462.
