Make a difference. Serve the community.

Our service trips are for campers who want to make a difference and see the amazing impact that service can have on the world and on themselves. We offer three very different service trips so campers can connect to a type of service that is meaningful to them. Campers who participate in our service trips will receive a signed letter recognizing them for at least 35 hours of service per trip.

Habitat for Humanity (Age 16+)

This trip is for campers who care about homelessness and want to make a difference helping Habitat for Humanity with everyday tasks to help raise money to rebuild the local community here in the Catskills. Campers work with the local Habitat for Humanity to gain experience, make new friends, acquire new skills, and “give back.” This trip isn’t all work and no play though, campers will also enjoy the beauty of the Catskill Mountains by climbing in the nearby Mohonk Preserve.
