Summer Special Programs

COVID-19 Updates   expand

After careful consideration of current projections surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, Skidmore College has made the difficult decision to cancel all on-campus summer institutes, camps, conferences, events, and academic programs. All advance registration and program fees for summer programming will be refunded.  We very much regret the necessity for this action and share in the disappointment it brings, but the well-being of our local and extended community must continue to be our highest priority. We look forward to a time very soon when we can safely be together.

Skidmore College offers a variety of programs for children of all ages during the summer months.

Camp Northwoods

Camp NorthwoodsCamp Northwoods, Skidmore's day camp for children entering grades 1-6, offers an exciting program of sports, cultural arts, nature study and relaxed play. Our goal is to provide a variety of fun activities that happily challenge the imagination, intellect, and body. The camp's home base is Falstaff's Pavilion on the Skidmore College campus, but campers frequent the Williamson Sports Center, Schick Art Gallery, Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, and Zankel Music Center.

The daily enrichment activities led by the qualified staff are supplemented by weekly field trips to recreational and historical sites, and visits by special guests. Children will also enjoy arts and crafts, ceramics, games, hiking, and daily swim time. One and two-week sessions are available.


Sports Camps

Baseball Camp 2012

Skidmore College also offers a wide array of Sports Camps from June through August for children of all ages. Choose from baseball, basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, and volleyball. Children learn the concept of teamwork while acquiring the necessary skills for his or her sport of choice.

Adults, novice or experienced, can participate in a rowing program offered throughout the spring, summer and fall at the Boat House located on beautiful Fish Creek. All other programs are held on the Skidmore Campus at the Sports and Recreation Center and/or the adjacent fields.
