Friends’ Weekend

Wednesday, August 21 – Sunday, August 25

Get ready for Friends’ Weekend 2024, Wednesday, August 21-Sunday, August 25. Join us for a long weekend and enjoy your favorite Camp and School activities—from pitching in at barn chores and swimming in Round Lake to enjoying family-style meals with friends and family or hiking up Balanced Rocks.

This year, we will also pay tribute to the incredible life of former Camp Co-Director, Colin Tait (CTT staff 54, 57, 67-82, parent 67-78), whose vast contributions helped to shape the Treetops experience that we know and love today. A memorial gathering to celebrate Colin will take place Friday, August 23 at 2 pm. All are invited to attend.

Housing and dining requests are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. In addition to weekend rates, daily rates are available. Find this year’s rates below, and reach out to Friends’ Weekend Coordinator Kimberly Corwin-Gray at  or (518) 424-3438 with questions.
