Raquette Lake Boys Camp; Raquette Lake Girls Camp



These brother and sister camps occupy opposite sides of Raquette Lake in the Adirondack Mountains. The boys' camp emphasizes athletics: Each week, the camp offers concentration in nine sports, and older campers with particular interest in a specific sport may engage in a specialty program to promote further mastery. Girls choose from arts and crafts, ceramics, team and individual sports, canoeing, swimming, sailing, hiking, rock climbing and an equestrian program, among other pursuits. The camp plans canoeing, sailing, rafting and mountain climbing day trips, as well as recreational excursions to the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, the Adirondack Museum, the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and a local water park.
