Camp Seneca Lake has provided children entering grades 3-11 with over 90 summers of fun, friends and cherished memories. Our 200 beautiful wooded acres in the Finger Lakes region of New York State provide the ideal backdrop for camp. Campers participate in a variety of exciting areas, including waterfront (skiing, sailing, wakeboarding and more), high and low ropes courses, most land sports, overnight hiking, nature, drama, and arts and crafts.
Where does the “magic” of camp originate?
That’s a simple question… with the staff! Our varied activities are led by a well-trained, mature, energetic college-age staff of over 100 individuals. Most of our counselors were former CSL campers themselves, now anxious to provide the fun and memories they once received to a new generation of campers.
Peace of mind for parents
As a camp accredited by the American Camp Association for decades, CSL upholds the highest standards of the camping industry. CSL Director Jane Amstey has years of experience in camping. Jane and her Leadership Team work throughout the year to provide a safe and healthy camp environment at CSL.
CSL will provide a fun, adventurous program, with immersive, experiential learning that builds Jewish identity, facilitates personal exploration, cultivates an appreciation of nature, and establishes the importance of Jewish community.
We inspire those we touch to establish a life-long Jewish identity and to make the world a better place through a commitment to Jewish values and community leadership.
By the end of the summer, campers will have developed social competencies like conflict resolution and communal living, and decision making related to executive functioning.
