Our summer camp mission is to help kids and teens find courage, build resilience, and learn to care for themselves, their friends and the natural world around them.
Since 1925, summer campers from around the world have come to Woodcraft to slow down, open up, explore and grow.
The atmosphere at Adirondack Woodcraft Camps is non-competitive, friendly & fun! Woodcraft is small by design and campers love the sense of freedom and connection they feel as they learn, grow, and build amazing friendships amidst the pristine setting of "their" camp in the Adirondacks.
Leadership Team: Camp Owners & Directors Doug & Christina Bartlett live at camp full time with their three children and Golden Retriever, Sunny. They have over 50 years of combined professional experience in the fields of camping, recreation management, education, and counseling. The Woodcraft staff is a mix of college aged and working professionals, most of which are educators. Doug & Christina are a lot like Camp Dad and Camp Mom and are energetic, “hands-on” camp directors who work together with their staff to create a safe and caring camp community every day.
Setting: Adirondack Woodcraft Camps offers unique access to untouched wilderness right out its cabin doors with direct access to two private unspoiled lakes where campers swim, boat and explore. The Moose River is a walk through the camp's woods away and offers incredible views and paddling with only the rush of water & beavers and otters to keep them company. With 500 miles of trails bordering our 250 acre property, campers can enjoy endless hiking and biking directly from the camp property.
Living: Woodcraft’s buildings are rustic and beautiful Adirondack style cabins with a wooden exterior and red tin roofs. The camp dining hall and long house have full log ceilings with post and beam construction and floor to ceiling stone fireplaces. Our youngest campers live in one larger cabin with bathrooms. As campers grow older, they move to divisions with individual cabins for 4-6 campers and one counselor with shared bathhouses next door.
