An Introduction for Parents
Going away to camp can be a fantastic opportunity for your child to grow independently, to make new friends and to feel part of a tight-knit community.
At Unirondack we try to create a home away from home for your child. Because we are a small camp with a high staff to camper ratio, campers are able to form strong relationships with their counselors. Our staff members take the time to get to know each camper and each camper knows that they are an important part of the Unirondack Community. Our community is a welcoming, warm and loving one. We accept and value our campers as unique individuals and encourage them to grow, to learn and to express themselves.
Unirondack’s home in the Adirondack woods is rustic but comfortable. Cabins are enclosed Adirondack-style buildings equipped with electricity and bathrooms. Each cabin room houses between 5 – 10 campers. A separate nearby showerhouse provides campers with hot showers. Our main lodge has comfortable couches and chairs, a fireplace and a game room. Our dining hall is family style and our meals are healthy and tasty with vegetarian options at each meal. Our lakefront lower camp is home to our outdoor performing arts center, boathouse, art shop, athletic field, campfire circle, chapel and boating area.
Unirondack welcomes approximately 60-70 campers each week during our summer youth sessions. Our campers come from New York State, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, Connecticut and Massachusetts (and even Canada, Australia and France). We have a flexible registration policy that enables campers to choose to come to Unirondack for one week-long session or to stay for up to four sessions. Our mixed-age weeks (Barton and Parker) give siblings of different ages a chance to attend camp together.
