Camp Seneca Lake has provided generations of children entering grades 4-12 with nearly 100 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 camping. Campers participate in a variety of activity areas and programs including waterfront (skiing, sailing, paddle sports and more), high and low ropes courses, land sports, hiking, nature, performing arts, and arts and crafts.

Where does the “magic” of camp originate?

That’s a simple question… with the staff! All of our activities are led by over 100 well-trained, mature, energetic adult staff. Most of our counselors were former CSL campers themselves, and are now trained and prepared provide the fun and memories they once received to a new generation of campers.

Peace of mind for parents

CSL upholds the highest standards of the camping industry as an accredited American Camping Association member. The 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.
