Here’s to a healthy and fun  Summer 2021!

Dear Woodcraft Families, Friends, Staff & Alumni,

If anything could have strengthened our desire to provide a safe and magical summer camp adventure for our kids and teens, it was Summer 2020. We missed our campers and staff so much and we can hardly wait to reopen and welcome Woodcrafters back to camp’s 250  acres of pure outdoor bliss. We are counting the days until we can reunite and have a ton of fun together safely. Summer 2021, here we come!

We can’t skip straight to 2021 without extending an enormous virtual hug of gratitude to our boaters, lodgers, staff and supporters this year. To our staff and all helpers, a tremendous thank you for your hard work and positive energy. Camp is looking beautiful because of you and your efforts have made a true difference. Included in this crew are our trusty “work weekenders” whose support means so much.

To our financial supporters who showed up for camp with gifts of all shapes and sizes, we are so grateful for your generosity. Your kindness touches a whole community and has helped Woodcraft stay strong during the pandemic. We are still at the beginning of our journey as new owners of this cherished and historic camp, and we could not have foreseen this particular challenge. Thank you for giving from your heart and for helping us to put financial muscle behind Woodcraft’s mission!

To our wonderful river crews and family campers, being able to provide a happy experience for you on a daily basis was a saving grace for our spirits this summer. It was so great to meet all of you. We especially loved the “can I lodge in the lean-to closest to the dock” type requests from alumni and we were so excited to have the chance to meet future Woodcraft campers! Alongside our summer camp program, we will continue to run boat rentals and Moose River shuttles spring, summer, and fall. Lodging will be possible spring & fall when our wedding schedule allows. Stay tuned!

As is evident, there is always sunshine after rain. Thank you for adding to our silver lining. In true Woodcraft spirit, we remained resilient during tough times and we are excited and ready to spring back to life. We welcome the new year, our campers, and all Woodcraft friends, lodgers, skiers, boaters, and wedding couples. 2021, here we come!

Sincerely and with gratitude, 

The Bartlett Family

2021 Enrollment is open! All families who enrolled already or register before 1/15/21 will have a secure placement should we need to modify camp capacity. We are confident we can operate Woodcraft safely in accordance with established COVID prevention and mitigation strategies. The CDC has already shared successful safety measures that were implemented at camps in operation in 2020 and we remain in close touch with NYS health officials, the ACA, and peer camps as we develop our safety plan. Because the situation is fluid, we plan to share specifics closer to the camp season. Given our commitment to safety, our remote & private location, large property, spacious and incredibly well ventilated facilities - hey, we love fresh air! - and the very low number of cases in the North Country, we look forward to a much needed fun and healthy summer with our beloved Woodcraft camp family!
