Why do visitors at Schodack make this comment time and time again?
We think it's because Schodack is committed to creating an environment that brings out the absolute best in children, and in doing so we attract like-minded families looking for a certain set of values.
What are these values that are like an antidote to our rough and tumble 21st century life? They are simplicity, active participation, sharing, lots of laughter and exciting challenges. Because Schodack brings out the best of childhood, because campers thrive in our culture-of-kindness, they do not miss their TVs, computers, cell phones, and electronic games. Campers feel safe, loved, and appreciated—Schodack becomes like a second home.
And it shows. Most of our 140 staff grew up at Schodack and believe in what it stands for. Schodack is committed to its small size, family atmosphere and amazing traditions.
We hope this web site and video give you a glimpse of how we foster this special camaraderie and fun.
How We Accommodate International Campers
Schodack has had campers join us from all around the world for many years. Our warm, family atmosphere makes our camp an easy place for international campers to quickly feel at home. We go on many optional cultural immersion trips for our international campers such as visits to state parks, museums and creative art performances such as ballet and opera.
