2023 Summer


We want you to be prepared! This page is your one-stop shop with everything that parents and campers need to know to get ready for camp this summer.

Camp Dates

In 2023, we will run each session from Saturday to Saturday:

  • Training Week: Saturday, June 24 to Saturday, July 1
  • Session 1: Saturday, July 1 to Saturday, July 15
  • Session 2: Saturday, July 15 to Saturday, July 29
  • Session 3: Saturday, July 29 to Saturday, August 12
  • Close Up: Saturday, August 12 to Tuesday, August 15

We will contact all families by the end of February 2023 with timelines and instructions on how to register for camp.

Health Forms and Food Allergies

If your child has food allergies, we strongly encourage him to attend Session 2. Our kitchen staff that session will be equipped to minimize the risk of cross-contamination and make appropriate substitutions.

Sermons and Platform Material

A sermon will be chosen specifically for your son (which he needs to memorize before coming to camp). We have done our best to choose a sermon that is suited to his personality and ability. You can work with your son to make minor adjustments to the wording, if you’d like. Most scripture quotations are in NIV or KJV, but feel free to use your son’s preferred translation instead. The sermon will be included in the confirmation email.

Returning Boys will also receive a list of platform ok’d in previous summers in the confirmation email. You can find copies of the previous material in the Platform Library. Your son can challenge himself by also memorizing a chapter of scripture before camp.

Packing Tips

Please review the packing tips to see what to pack for your son’s stay and how to deposit spending money on arrival.

Saturday Afternoon Program

Families are invited to attend our Saturday Afternoon Program in-person in 2023. The program runs from 2:00pm to 3:30pm on the final Saturday of camp. We encourage families to stay for the program when they arrive to pick up their son.

COVID-19

New York State has not announced any COVID-related health protocols for summer camps in 2023. We will inform families via email if the State introduces any new requirements.

Campers and staff should only come to camp if they are feeling well. We ask that anyone who is feeling unwell (cold, fever, flu, etc.) or who may have had contact with someone with COVID-19 to stay home.

If we suspect or confirm that a camper has COVID-19 at camp, he will be quarantined. His parents will be asked to pick him up within 24 hours.
