Who doesn't like a field trip
every now and then?

Our campers and staff love to take a trip off the camp grounds to visit the local trampoline park or go to an amusement park! At Chipinaw, our campers in 7th grade and above go on an overnight trip to Hershey Park, Boston, Toronto, or Washington DC. At Silver Lake, our 9th graders go on an overnight trip to CamelBack Lodge or Hershey Park.

Daily Program

best summer camp in new york
With over sixty different summer camp activities at Chipinaw and Silver Lake,

campers are always excited about something! We encourage our campers to try all of the activities! As campers get older, we understand that their interests change and that they tend to focus on a specific area like athletics, art, computer graphics, or performing arts.


Our campers get to enjoy six activities a day, six days a week. Younger divisions get two water activities, two sport activities and two electives. As the campers get older, we add more  electives to accommodate their interests. Campers at Chipinaw and Silver Lake choose their activities the day before for the following day, with guidance from their group leaders. Check out our Activities section for a full list of offerings.
