  "I wish camp could be every day of the year…"

You hear those words at the end of our camp video, and it’s a sentiment that countless Schodack campers have expressed over the years. Since 1957, Schodack has been a summer home for thousands of children who thrive in our family-oriented, active and nurturing environment. Under the same Krouner-family ownership since its creation, Schodack is a co-ed, ACA accredited, residential sleepaway camp that believes in providing a fun, safe and friendship-filled summer for children. The positive spirit that flows through Schodack is truly an amazing thing to experience, and our campers tell us they love the warmth, tradition and spirit that come from spending a summer at Schodack.
