Years ago, we took our first steps into the world of sustainability, Eco friendly buildings and recycling and reusing materials in new and exciting ways.

This summer we would like to continue that tradition by building a small fishing pond near our Earth ship and organic garden using as many found and recycled materials as we possibly can. We built the earth ship out of old tires, bottles, mud and found lumber over a number of years and its still one of our favorite and most memorable projects on camp!

We really believe in sustainability and doing things yourself (D.I.Y). With enough materials and enthusiasm, you can build almost anything from recycled, spare, or found parts. We really want to try and build our own small fish pond in much the same manner as seen here. Our campers love nothing more than being a part of something that will be around for generations, making their mark, leaving their legacy at Long Lake Camp Adventures.

We have had kids who helped build the earthship come back to visit as adults and they always share memories of building these Eco-friendly structures. Smiles appear on their faces as they check it out and remember placing that exact bottle or that exact tire. Being immortalized at camp helps our campers really feel like a part of the Adventure Camp legacy. Our approach to hands on learning, D.I.Y. and sustainability flow into our art projects as well, such as the scrap metal sculpture we will also be working on this summer. Wherever possible we like camp to feel like it belongs to our campers and for them to make their mark lasting years to come!

Every session here at Long Lake Camp Adventures, we embark on a trip that is pretty unique to us as a camp. It involves canoeing from the camp waterfront, down part of the 14 mile-Long Lake to the beach in the local town, where we spend the day having fun, munching on fresh local summer fruits, and taking to the skies in groups in the seaplanes that take off from the waters of Long Lake itself!
The seaplanes fly around the local area, including over the peaks of mountains we have hiked and summited in our hiking trips earlier in the session. Seeing those mountains from the air really puts the campers hiking achievements into perspective! The seaplanes ALSO fly over and circle around camp and this summer we are going to create artworks on the camp grounds that can only be seen from the sky, specifically for this trip!

Every single day brings us closer to kicking off summer 2018!

We cannot wait to be back up at camp in the glorious weather, taking in those breathtaking views, welcoming back returning campers and staff and meeting all the new campers, families, and 1st time staff members joining us for their first Adventure Camp experience!

With more activities, staff, and campers than ever before, summer 2018 is going to be one of our most epic summers to date!

We FINALLY found the photos taken during one of the BURNOUTS we did with the old Buick Skylark which is now the official vehicle of NYHC COMICS in Dobbs Ferry New York!
There were at least 2 separate times we did burnouts for the kids in this classic American muscle car and they were blown away by the sight and sounds this beast kicks out!
We like to do them during our orientation day for the automotive kids to get them pumped and excited to work with these magnificent vehicles! Here’s to another incredible summer of classic American Muscle cars!
Don’t forget, we have a new project coming this summer! Official photos to come soon!
Share with the gearhead in your life!

THERE IS A BRAND NEW AUTOMOTIVE PROJECT COMING YOUR WAY THIS SUMMER, CAN YOU GUESS WHAT IT IS?
We are gearing up to fire our engines at the starting line of summer 2018 with a brand new classic American muscle car project for our campers to get their hands on in the automotive garage this summer.
Of course we still have the skylarks, the roadrunner, the drifting BMW, the old off-roading Jeep "THE MANGLER" and the built-from scratch Ford T-bucket Hot Rod, but THIS? This is a new beast altogether.
Witness and get to work on this incredible machine right here at American's only Automotive summer camp this summer, Long Lake Camp Adventures.

3 weeks is a long time, especially through a campers eyes and when it comes time to say goodbye at the end of camp, there are usually a few tears in those eyes!

Spending 3 weeks with a group of people who start as strangers and quickly become like close family is a hard thing to let go of, especially when most of our campers come from varied places around the world.

Our unique structure gives our campers the opportunity to bond in unprecedented ways. We are relatively small with 80 campers per session, and with such a varied array of activities to choose from, a camper can make friends very quickly with all sorts of different people, all with similar interests to themselves!

At blacksmithing and woodworking for example, there could be a mix of boys and girls, from a range of ages, all interested in the same thing, who naturally help each other out and get to know one another. Learning tools of the trade for familiar, or totally new activities, and helping each other along the way, is at the very heart of our program.

It's really nice to see such diverse friend groups at camp, and we know its hard to say goodbye at the end but more than likely we all get to see each other again the next summer! Many of our campers develop friendships which flourish well beyond their time at camp. To all of our friends from across the years we miss you and hope you all stay in contact! Don't be shy to come say hi again one day!

Here at Long Lake Camp Adventures, we absolutely LOVE animals! Having our own mini farm with the goats, pigs, donkey, and chicken is amazing and they receive a lot of love each session from our adoring campers.

During the winters, our little farm animals move in to the enormous traditional barn where we house our other animal family. The horses!

The barn is where all of our horseback trips and lessons leave from, where the horses get tacked up and where their feeding and grooming take place.
Horseback at Adventure Camp is awesome, giving completely unlimited sessions to take to the trails and enjoy the incredible scenery of the Adirondacks in a fun way!

Check out this video below, All about our wonderful horses and what they get up to during the summer :)

Chess was another huge success last summer at camp, bringing in more campers every time the boards were set up. We have dabbled with chess in the past but have never had such an interest in the game as we did last summer.
SO, we went all out and ordered a number of different boards and pieces for the kids to play with, including a VERY unique 4-player version of the game where players could move pieces from all 4 sides of the board, very fun and challenging!
Our chess master last summer, Luke, set up challnges for the kids to beat him, offering prizes for anyone that actually managed to.
It is nice to see kids still having a keen interest in mental challenges such as chess as it helps them to think about things in different ways which is essential to growing up and finding out who you are.

ADVENTURE GIRLS!
Boys and Girls alike absolutely love Long Lake Camp Adventures for everything it has to offer and we have added many activities over the years that our female campers in particular have found a love for! Horseback, Gymnastics, Cheerleading, Yoga, Arts and Crafts, the Organic Garden, Fitness and Hip-Hop Dance classes have all been heavily attended by our female campers but they love to get stuck in just as much as the boys with the ATV's, paintball, automotive classes and More! At Long Lake Camp Adventures, we don't believe in classifying activities by gender, our focus is on providing all kids a space to explore what makes them happy.
Being a Girl at Adventure Camp means being surrounded by other girls and boys, from around the world who share similar interests, passions and skills. If you interested in how a car works, how to run maintenance checks, and how to put together and build your own engines and vehicles, then Long Lake is the place for you. Excited about twisting and turning through the woods on an ATV and flying through massive mud puddles? You'll find girls just like you here at Adventure Camp!
Long Lake Camp Adventures is a place where a girl can be anything she wants to be, with no restrictions, limitations or pressures from the outside world to be anything but who she is. The beauty really comes from sharing those passions with other girls and learning that no matter what it is you love, there are countless people out there who can get just as excited as you and show it!
Our girls have built running cars from scratch, wiped out every other camper in tournaments, set unbeaten records, and most importantly formed friendships that last a lifetime! Many of our campers remain friends way beyond camp and often keep us updated with messages outlining how much camp meant to them as a child by providing a space to develop confidence and grow into strong young women.
