Every session of every summer, our wonderful Fine Arts Building, the F.A.B, begins to overflow with incredibly unique and creative art projects! There are artworks galore, hundreds of different styles and mediums, and at the end of the session, for the Parent's Weekend, we collect them all up and set up an art gallery to showcase our camper's hard work! Every ordinary inch of space is made extraordinary, covered in colors, shapes, and incredible eye-catching creativity, our parents and campers love taking it all in! One such program from last summer was the MINI MODEL campsite, made from fabric wire, real life nature, and a HUGE amount of attention to detail! From the little sleeping bags inside the tents, to the loops supporting the 'poles' and even the miniature burger, hot dog, and marshmallows roasting by the fairy light, these campers have an EXTREMELY good eye for perspective and realism. A HUGE well done to Madison, Kaylee, Rose, and Kaisei from Session 2, 2017, for creating such an unbelievable miniature masterpiece!

We are often asked how we manage to provide 250 campers each session with a free-choice program, with entirely customized schedules, 7 periods a day, 7 days a week, for all 3 weeks! Here is how it's done ;)
Even before our campers join us, we'll have a preliminary idea of what it is they are excited to try at camp, thanks to our three handy forms: A Parent/Camper Questionnaire and a Wish List. These forms go straight to our Unit Leaders, a special category of staff on camp, in addition to our instructors running activities. Unit Leaders are predominately aged 20-28, and all have extensive experience working with children in their lives outside of camp. Unit Leaders are assigned a small group of campers to work with. The Unit Leaders receive all the forms for their group of campers and communicate with parents frequently, and our campers daily, so that we can make sure our campers and parents are happy with what their kids are getting up to!
The very first day of camp is Orientation, when all campers receive an extensive camp tour, meet Heads of the Departments, and learn all about the exciting opportunities open to them. Every day following Orientation is pretty much a brand new day for our campers, to fill as they wish. Camper sign up for activities up through lunch at the daily Morning Meeting, and up through dinner at the Afternoon Meeting. Through our noncompetitive free-choice program, we hope to create a space where our campers can practice self-advocacy, and explore what it is that makes them happy. Our goal is to help our campers develop the highest art - the art of living!

Every Saturday Night at camp we transform our Performing Arts center into a bona fide Rock N Roll venue. Any camper is free to join an existing band on camp, or get together with friends to create their own! With private lessons offered in a huge variety of instruments, campers can focus on honing their skills and develop their own distinctive sound. Campers may immortalize all of their hard work and record their songs in our professional studio. With every pluck, strum and belt, our campers give it everything they've got as they perform on our laser lit stage for an audience of adoring fellow Long Lakers.

Star Wars is coming!

If you know anything about Long Lake, then you know we are all obsessed with Star Wars! We are all heading to see "The Last Jedi" on opening day on Friday!
Who else is super excited for this movie? Maybe we will see some of you there!

Music has always been at the heart of Long Lake since its founding in 1969 by David Katz, the conductor of the Queen's Symphony Orchestra.
There are many musical adventures to be had at camp: delve into the world of rock music by creating or joining a band and perform in front of a live audience, perform as part of an orchestral or musical pit for the shows, write and record your own songs, etc etc
The list goes on!
Our music department offers private lessons on a huge variety of instruments for aspiring musicians of all levels.

This collection is from the very first day of camp as campers arrive gradually throughout the day, ahead of the coaches that have been traveling up from Westchester.
Nothing is more exciting than that first moment you see your camp family again! We all go an entire year in between the summers and come from so far afield that when we finally get to see each other again it feels just like being home!
When the coaches pull up, there are always screams of joy and excitement from campers and staff alike who have been waiting for this moment for so long!
We gather on the teardrop and after being welcomed by Marc and Susan, we get assigned to our bunks, unpack, and head to the dining hall for the traditional thanksgiving-style feast! Oh and of course, the all too famous dining hall speech!
From this moment onward, camp is officially in full swing and that means we are about to kick off another incredible session filled with art, music, theater, friends and fun!

The Fine Arts Building, also known as the F.A.B. on camp is a truly magical place overflowing with creativity, materials, and big ideas!
There are over 20 different departments and stations in this artopia, each featuring a unique form of art and its own dedicated instructor.

OVerseeing this inventive wonderland is Magic May who has been shaping young creative minds for many years at camp. Alongside her assistant creative director, May makes sure the campers have the materials they need and helps them develop their ideas into realized works of art. She also curates special events at camp such as Zombie day, Edible Art Day, and Pirate Day! Thank you May for everything you do at Long Lake! :)

There are sculptures, murals, sketches, puppets, movies, jewelry, ceramics, paintings, fashion, weaving, photography, and much more coming out of the F.A.B. every single day, every session.

The ART show at the end of the session sees the F.A.B. transform into an expansive 2 story gallery, showcasing all of the campers work and open for their parents and families to wander around for most of the day in between the shows and productions.

For our campers who live and breath the fine arts, we offer night-time classes which take place during the evening activity, each night. Affectionately nicknamed "F.A.B. Rats", these campers absolutely love to spend their time working away on their projects in the quieter setting of the F.A.B. after dark.

We are performing and fine arts summer camp and it is important to notice the distinction between these two art forms and types of artists, giving ample time and facilities for both to ensure progression!

Hi Everyone!
Just wanted to let you know that all 3 sessions video diaries from summer 2017 are now available to view on our vimeo page! Simply follow this link and you will see them right there:
https://vimeo.com/longlakecampforthearts
We have done the video diaries a little differently this year, splitting each department up into their own stand-alone video! So if you're a music kid, be sure to check out the music video diary and if your a theater kid, check out the theater video and so on. It's as simple as that!
Enjoy and share as much as you can so that our whole family get to see them!
