We are busy planning for the Summer of 2013 and expect camp registration to open on the following dates:

February 15, 2013 - Dependents of Skidmore Employee Registration

March 1, 2013 - Returning Camp Northwoods Camper Registration

March 15, 2013 - New to Camp Northwoods Registration

Watch this site for the online application to become available on March 15.  If you are a Skidmore College employee or returning camper, watch your email for your advanced registration notice.

Camp Northwoods offers an exciting program of sports, cultural arts, nature study and relaxed play for children.


The program draws on the rich and varied resources of Skidmore College and the surrounding area.  The camp's home base is Flastaff's Pavillion on the Skidmore College campus, but campers frequent the Williamson Sports Center, Schick Art Gallery, Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, and Zankel Music Center.  The daily enrichment activities led by the qualified staff are supplemented by weekly field trips to recreational and historical sites, and visits by special guests.


Children entering grades 1-6* will also enjoy activities that include arts and crafts, ceramics, games, hiking, and daily swim time.  Our goal is to provide a variety of fun activities that happily challenge the imagination, intellect, and body.  We hope you will join us this summer.

 

*Camper must be entering 1st grade and 6 years old by December 1, 2013.
