Brand New – See Our Latest Additions!

Exciting new things are always happening at Schodack and we are thrilled to share some of the fantastic facility additions our campers will experience this summer. Let’s Go Summer 2016!!!!

We completely resurfaced our Street Hockey Court and Junior Camp Playground! These new, state-of-the-art playing surfaces are beautiful and provide for terrific, safe play-ability. The Hockey Court is a 2-year project – after using it this summer we will be taking down the current boards and installing a brand new system for 2017!

Our work in the bunks continued in full force this year and we finished complete, gut-renovations of G5, G6 and B2 (as well as lots of smaller renovations in many other bunks). The new layouts are bright, airy and spacious and our campers and staff love them.

We’ve added a new, super-duty model to our ever-expanding fleet of Scho-Karts. Campers will love to zip around our track in these new whips – they have increased seating room for a super comfy ride.

The Rec Hall, one of the most beloved buildings on camp, has undergone a major facelift. The Tribals Plaques are back up (now in chronological order) and we improved the floorplan to add some square-footage. Lots of history in this room…glad we gave it some love in time for our 60th Reunion!!

Announcing Brand New….Fishing!!

Each summer we find ways to expand our program by offering new and exciting activities. In recent years we have placed a particular focus on increasing our outdoor/adventure offerings for campers who want to experience nature in fun and exciting ways. This summer, in addition to greatly expanding our outdoor cooking program and doubling the number of white-water rafting trips we offer, campers will be able to say they’ve…Gone Fishin’!

gonefishingCampers will have the option to sign-up for Fishing as an optional activity during Camper Choice at the Lake. An angler himself, Matt Krouner will be supervising the start of this activity along with members of our lake staff.

We have received a number of requests for fishing over the past few years and know this will be a popular addition to Schodack in 2014!
