Lake George from Tongue MountainThe Perfect Setting for a Summer Camp

“Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw; formed by a contour of mountains into a basin… finely interspersed with islands, its water limpid as crystal, and the mountain sides covered with rich groves… down to the water-edge: here and there precipices of rock to checker the scene and save it from monotony.”
— Thomas Jefferson, May 31, 1791


On the eastern shore of Lake George, at the foot of Buck Mountain, lies the most beautiful summer camp in the world.


The facilities of Camp Chingachgook reflect the spirit of its setting. Inspirational, natural, and unique. With the flexibility to serve campers, families, and retreat groups throughout the year, Chingachgook has truly become a camp for all seasons.
