Since 1936, Girls Quest’s Camp Oh-Neh-Tah in the Catskill Mountains has empowered girls to become strong, independent, productive and caring individuals through outdoor experiential education, social and literacy development. Formerly known as the Girls Vacation Fund, Girls Quest has been the key that has unlocked a world of possibilities for more than 60,000 under-served, low income, at-risk girls from Metro New York City and Green Country, NY.
Camping provides an opportunity to take girls away from challenging surroundings and immerse them into a space where they can safely have fun outdoors, relax, learn, meet new friends, un-hook from technology and discover their best selves. Especially in 2021, children need camp to help them re-emerge and reconnect with nature, others and themselves.
Less than three hours drive from New York City, Camp Oh-Neh-Tah covers more than 400 acres of pristine woodlands. Campers explore the site which includes Mount Zoar, Silver Lake, nature trails, a beaver pond and an abundance of wildlife.
During their stay, campers participate in schedule program activities such as Instructional and Free swimming, boating, artistic outlets through visual and performing arts, exposure to nature and outdoor living skills, daily reading and creative writing opportunities and a variety of athletic and fitness options. In Covid 2021 camp will look a bit different as we follow all guidelines and recommendations from the CDC, American Camp Association, Association of Camp nurses and the New York State Department of Health. See our COVID-19 Statement for additional details.
Girls Quest’s Camp Oh-Neh-Tah offers staff an opportunity to work with and contribute to the growth of young girls in a supportive atmosphere. Due to the short term of our session, well trained and committed staff work very closely to provide an outstanding adventure for the girls we serve.
We are hiring for all positions, with job descriptions and application directly on our website.
