YMCA Camp Chingachgook

About YMCA Camp Chingachgook

On the eastern shore of Lake George, at the foot of Buck Mountain, sits one of the most beautiful camps in the world. Known primarily for its world-class summer camp programs, YMCA Camp Chingachgook has expanded its offerings in recent decades to include a variety of retreats, programs and partnerships all geared toward positively impacting the world through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. YMCA Camp Chingachgook is a safe, inclusive community where people of all ages are inspired to be better stewards of the world through the thoughtful facilitation of high quality, engaging experiences.

In the summer we offer resident camp, day camp and adventure trips for teens. During the school year we host many different school groups who come for 1-3day to have an Outdoor Education experience with our dedicated staff. We also host year round women's retreats, family retreats, weddings and events. Visit our website to learn more:

“The experience to travel the eastern seaboard from Massachusetts to the wilderness of Canada and sharing that with different groups of kids throughout the summer was incredibly rewarding. Not only were the expeditions and activities incredible but witnessing the personal and interpersonal growth of the kids while out and away from the rest of society was truly the highlight of it all. ”
