Summer Youth Camps

Our enrollment is small relative to other children’s camps, with approximately 20 counselors and 70 campers in each of our youth sessions, allowing counselors to provide personal attention to campers, creating a close-knit community. The exceptional young adults chosen to comprise our counseling staff receive professional training in leadership, program planning and implementation, conflict resolution, child development, safety and first aid, and methods of fostering an inclusive community.

This session focuses on discussions of issues that are important to teens, outdoor activities, and creative expression in many forms.

Wilderness Adventures are an exciting extension of the Unirondack experience — allowing campers to spend time with a small group of peers and counselors in the forever-wild Adirondacks. The western Adirondacks are filled with gentle landscapes of hills, lakes, wetlands, ponds and streams. Campers canoe and/or hike each day through spectacular scenery, and camp out each night. Your adventure will start and end at Unirondack, where campers prepare for the trip on Sunday and take a welcome hot shower on Friday before joining our Parker 2 campers for our end-of-week banquet, campfire and dance. REGISTER NOW!
