Build Confidence And Develop Leadership Skills!

NOTE: As you know, our priority is always the health and safety of our campers. As we begin to plan for Summer 2022, we are still determining which COVID-19 Protocols will be implemented for the summer. However after many conversations with our CEO, Senior Administration and our staff Frost Valley has made the decision that all eligible overnight and day campers (ages 5 and up) and staff will be required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to attend camp this summer. Learn more about this requirement and stay tuned to our 2022 COVID-19 FAQ page for more information. We will be working with the New York State Department of Health, CDC, and American Camp Association to stay updated. To see what we did last summer, please look at our 2021 COVID-19 FAQ page


Leadership Trips

In our Leadership Track, participants will gain experience and confidence in the technical skills of backcountry camping while developing their leadership skills. From cooking a meal over a stove, reading a map and compass, or managing a campsite, participants will gain a deeper appreciation, comfort, and appreciation for nature and the outdoors. With guidance from our Trip Leaders, campers will begin taking on different roles amongst their trip mates and become decision-makers of the trip. These trips are for campers who have had experience with wilderness camping or have a strong desire to participate in it.
