Chateaugay is a warm, nurturing co-ed camp, with a wide geographic mix and a non-pretentious crowd of campers. Our family environment makes it easy for the first time camper to develop friendships and build memories for a lifetime.
Nestled on the scenic north shore of one of the great Adirondack Lakes, Camp Chateaugay's captivating wilderness is playground to campers of all abilities.
Built as a summer estate in 1917, the camp's character has evolved through many years. Today, modern activities and amenities, coupled with spectacular wilderness opportunity, make it foremost in a summer camp experience.
Exceptional instructors and counselors actively encourage self-discovery among campers, which in turn, promotes self-esteem.
The opportunity to try new activities, gives campers the chance to find that they are talented in a sport or art that they might never have explored.
Campers are encouraged to participate in team sports, fostering a sense of community. They develop warm and lasting friendships, as attested to by the return of our campers . . . season to season; generation after generation. Campers feel good about themselves while learning respect for one another. This sets the groundwork for productive and successful lives. Chateaugay will continue to build on a solid foundation, forever seeking ways to provide a secure and supportive environment that nurtures the growth of its young people.
Many of our campers come from families who have been attending Camp Chateaugay from generation to generation. Parents send their kids to camp to learn their camp songs and experience the games, campfires, and camp celebrations that made their summers so special. Chateaugay’s united spirited environment encourages friendships across age groups, gender and nationality. It builds the spirit of returning campers and captures the hearts of new campers. This time in our kids lives truly helps to build Memories for a lifetime.
