Family Camp Weekends

Family Fun at YMCA Camp Chingachgook on Lake GeorgeWhat better way to greet or wrap up the summer than spending a few days away with the family on the beautiful shores of Lake George! Nestled at the base of Buck Mountain, Camp Chingachgook hosts a four day retreat over Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend with activities for both youth and adults. Spend quality time with the whole family, or find a moment to yourself and relax while we entertain the kids for a bit. There is something for everyone to enjoy! Activities include canoeing, kayaking, hiking, archery, rock climbing, high ropes course, arts and crafts, games, campfires, and more! Delicious meals are provided from Friday dinner until lunch on Monday by our talented Kitchen staff. Our Adirondack-style cabins combine the rustic feeling of camping while providing the comfort of electricity and nearby modern bath facilities.
