Adirondack Woodcraft Camps



Featuring 300 acres of woodland, two large lakes and nearly two miles of wilderness river, Woodcraft has eight divisional camps, with programs for each age group structured to allow campers to expand their abilities. While AWC offers a diverse program, wilderness living skills are emphasized. Activities include photography, crafts, natural science, forestry, land sports and watersports, wilderness and mountain climbing trips, technical rock climbing, rappelling, zip lines, survival techniques and mountain biking.
