Catskill Weekend Family Getaways

Limited Programming Currently Available:

Our typical schedule of programming has been modified due to occupancy restrictions and other limitations that impact our ability to conduct programs in our normal manner. We have selected a few programs that we are able to safely and efficiently run at less than 50% occupancy, with limited staff. These programs may have either no staff-led activities or meals or at times, we may be able to offer limited activities with meals delivered to guest lodges. For the time being, our Dining Hall is closed. Thank you for your patience as we continue to adjust to the current circumstances.

  • Week-long Lodging Reservations on Main Camp through to October 4
  • East Valley Ranch Family Retreats for weekend stays or longer; includes meals, lodging, and activities like horseback riding and farm visits!
  • Program is Full: Columbus Day Weekend at Main Camp – currently, this is the only themed weekend that we are certain we can run. We hope to review the circumstances in the coming months and make decisions about 2021 winter and spring weekends and programs.
