Adirondack Woodcraft Camps is sensitive to individual differences in development, and we place campers in seven divisions accordingly. Each division is structured and supervised so that youngsters get the most from their camp experience.
Girls from 6 to 9
These girls live in a great cabin at the heart of camp, with heat, electricity, and a modern bathroom. Capable and seasoned role models serve as guardian, teacher, and even mother for these campers.
Girls from 10 to 12
The Wenonahs live in a ring of spacious cabins, each with electricity and nearby bathrooms and showers. They live next to the Auroras around Lake Ta-jec-na. At this crucial age, our Wenonahs learn their true potential as they value harmony with nature and collaboration with peers.
Girls from 13 to 15
Our Auroras discover how to combine fun, genuine camaraderie, and overcoming challenges. Lake Ta-jec-na (“Twin”) is home to groups of 4 to 5 young women led by a mature counselor. The spacious cabins have electricity with nearby bathrooms and showers. Auroras share exciting day trips and can experience white-water and other hiking and tripping activities.
Outdoor Leadership Training Division
Boys and Girls 16 years old
Our Outdoor Leadership Training Division, or OLTD, provides a valuable transition, preparing future counselors for greater responsibility and opportunities to serve as examples to their peers. These seven-week campers live in lean-tos in both Trail Camp and along Lake Ta-jec-na. As counselors-in-training, OLTD campers not only face greater challenges, they also reap the benefits of acquiring leadership skills that can translate to success in other areas of their lives.
