Treetops offers a life of simplicity where, during a summer unplugged, children come to appreciate their own imaginations, the company of others, and the wonders of the natural world.
Nature & Wilderness
Our spectacular Adirondack setting fosters a sense of wonder and curiosity for the natural world. Campers build confidence and community through adventures in hiking, climbing, paddling and sailing, and exploring.
With opportunities for creativity woven seamlessly into every Treetops day, campers discover not only the simple joys of self-expression and imagination, but also a sense of resourcefulness and accomplishment.
Our lake is a hive of activity for building swimming and boating skills, as well as time together out on the rafts, or more whimsical play like practicing handstands in shallow water, building sandcastles, and catching salamanders along the shore.
Whimsy and Play
At Treetops, the joys of childhood are within easy reach—to jump in puddles, chase butterflies, throw a frisbee with a friend—unencumbered by frenzied pace or over-scheduled routine.
Since the 1920s, campers have been growing, harvesting and foraging from our fields and gardens, while also gaining confidence as they look after barn animals like pigs, goats, sheep, and chickens, and work with our horses through trail riding and daily care. Children develop a sense of connectedness and compassion as they experience the cycles and rhythms of the farm.
