More About Camp
Camp Seneca Lake is the summer home for about 450 campers, ages 8-16. The majority of our campers are from the Jewish communities of Upstate New York (Rochester, Syracuse,Ithaca, Binghamton, Buffalo and Elmira) as well as from cities in the eastern U.S. and Canada. We have many second and third generation campers who come from across the country.

Staff and campers share rustic cabins . Each bunk is staffed by two counselors who share responsibilities for the happiness and well-being of their campers. Counselors are either assigned throughout our program areas as instructors or spend the day with their campers moving from activity to activity.

Our varied activities are led by a mature and skilled college-age staff, many of whom are in the education field. Each area of the Camp Seneca Lake program is led by a talented Head Specialist who has considerable experience and knowledge in the area. We look for staff who have expertise in their field and are committed to providing an enriching camp experience for children. Many of our staff were campers who graduated from our Counselor-in-Training program to become a Camp Seneca Lake staff member.

The CSL experience combines fun, friendships, spirit, and personal growth. Campers participate in a variety of exciting activities, including waterfront adventures, swim lessons, athletics, Jewish culture, hiking, nature, drama and arts and crafts. The camp provides a wholesome Jewish camp community that promotes development of the physical, social, and emotional identities of our campers.
