2018 Head Staff Announcement – Activity Counselor Supervisors (ACS’s)

Get ready for this next group of Head Staff Members for the summer…the ACS’s! This great duo will work alongside Alyssa Applebaum, doing incredible work with all our activity areas! We can’t wait!


Tom Barrett AKA ‘Baz’ is back for his third summer at camp and first as an ACS! During the year, he lives in the Canadian Rockies and in -35 temperatures he goes heli-skiing and dog sledding!

Baz’s favorite camp memory is representing half of camp in white for Two-Day Tribals and leading his team out to Siberia for Rope Burning! This summer he is most excited to work alongside an awesome head staff group, see the Krouners in the dunk tank at the LT Carnival and look at the beautiful Schodack sunsets every night! .

Fun Fact: Baz technically has two birthdays because he was born right as midnight was approaching and the nurse couldn’t tell if it was 11:59PM or 12:00AM!



After running our pool program for the past two summers, we can’t wait to have Kristyn Bennett back at camp for her third summer! During the year, she lives in Sydney, Australia where she studies Social Entrepreneurship and also works as a nanny!

Her favorite camp memories are watching the Kiowa Girls win BPN in 2017 and watching her team’s Tribals’ plaque get revealed at sing!

Kristyn can’t wait to get back to camp for services, have her favorite item from the canteen, Rolos, and to see all of her friends and campers!

Fun fact: Kristyn has visited 19 states since her first summer at camp!


A Note From The Krouners On Our Upcoming New Logo!!

Hello Schodack Families,

We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and we wish you a happy and healthy start to 2018. The beginning of a new year always signals the nearing of another camp season and we can’t wait!

As you know, there are few things more important to us than continuity, tradition and a continued commitment to improving camp. With that in mind, we are writing to let you know about an upcoming change to Schodack’s logo.

For many years, our logo depicting a Native American has been one of camp’s most identifiable symbols. It originated from our strong commitment to honor the rich history of our land and we continue to be proud of the ways we incorporate Native American culture into our camp program. However, our society is moving away from using cultural symbols for branding purposes and we agree with this shift. We want our camp imagery to be better aligned with our values, both now and into the future.

Now, here is the fun part….we can really use your help! FILL OUT THIS BRIEF SURVEY to provide us vital feedback as we create the new logo for Camp Schodack! We would love to hear about the images, words, and feelings that most remind you of Schodack and best represent what Schodack means to you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to help with this, and of course always feel free to call or email with your thoughts as well. Your ideas and suggestions are very important to us!

Wishing you all the best,

Paul, Linda, Matt and Adelle
