There is nothing better than spending your summer in the beautiful Adirondacks! At YMCA Camp Chingachgook, we believe in fostering growth and passion, in an accepting community, that is steeped in tradition. For over 100 years, we’ve provided campers from all around the world the opportunity to experience the magic of camp, with the perfect setting on the shores of Lake George. Every day at Camp offers the perfect setting for building confidence & independence, learning valuable life skills, and making lasting friendships and memories. Dates & Rates can be found here and you can read below to learn about all the amazing opportunities Chingachgook is offering this summer!
Overnight Camp: Serving campers aged 7 to 15, our overnight camp program is made up of six, 1 or 2 week sessions. Our overnight camp experience is intentionally based on our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We value the opportunity to learn and grown with each and every camper, while providing a variety of activities that give each camper the best time of their lives! Teen Leadership Program: The Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program is a four or five week program designed to train those who are ready to take on new challenges, opportunities and responsibilities at Camp. This unique opportunity provides teens (ages 16-17) the chance to develop their personal leadership style, hone in on their communication and problem solving skills and gain valuable professional development that will help them succeed at Camp, in school and in any workplace. We currently have space left in our August CIT program from July 25 - August 19, more information on the program can be found here.
Day Camp: Day Camp is back in 2022! Serving campers aged 5 to 10, we will be offering nine, 1-week, day camp options. The day camp program runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, with an early pick-up on Fridays at 3:00 pm. There is also an option for “After-care” which moves pick up to 5:30 PM for those who cannot get out of work earlier! Each day includes a nutritious lunch, afternoon snack, fun activities, and time to swim in beautiful Lake George. Our main goal is to provide a variety for the campers and give them a taste of all Chingachgook has to offer, so each day camp week includes daily swim time, group games/teambuilding activities, sports, archery, climbing tower, canoeing, and daily choice time.
