Family-owned since 1905, Camp Pok-O-Moonshine for boys and Camp MacCready for girls are recognized for their beauty, adventure, close friendships, and life-long memories. Among the over-35 activities offered each summer are: hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, rock climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, sailing, windsurfing, swimming, and creative arts. Facilities available to every camper include an early 19th Century working farm, an indoor rockclimbing center, tennis and basketball courts, a street hockey complex, modern horse stables, ball fields, swimming and boating docks, and over 50 cabins.
Our philosophy is to help each camper develop an awareness of and appreciation for the natural environment, while participating in new experiences, learning new skills, and making new friends. Pok-O-MacCready will provide your child with a chance to develop self-reliance, cooperation, interdependence and above all a safe, healthy, and enjoyable summer.
Camp life entails more than having a good time. It is a time of learning and of establishing an understanding of the outdoors and oneself. Each summer, our camp family feeds off of a potion we call "Pok-O-MacCready Spirit." You'll hear it in the laughter, the jokes, the stories, and the songs. You'll see it in the smiles, the hugs, and the sense of purpose from everyone. "Pok-O-MacCready Spirit" is a mix of love, friendship, enthusiasm, sharing, pride, loyalty, trust and tradition. Campers and staff alike share it. It has been around from day one. Although it is tough to describe exactly what "Pok-O Spirit" is, it can safely be said that it's the reason why Pok-O-MacCready is so unique and successful.
Additionally, we are extremely proud of the international reputation that our camp has maintained since its founding. In recent years, we have welcomed campers from Canada, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Colombia, Costa Rica, Saudi Arabia, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Israel, Egypt and Russia. Come and enjoy the summer with us and become part of the Pok-O-MacCready family!
