Skidmore College offers a variety of programs for children of all ages during the summer months.
Plans for our summer 2021 programs are detailed on individual camp websites. Given the ongoing impact of COVID-19, as well as ever-evolving local, state and national health and safety requirements, Skidmore’s summer plans could be subject to change in the weeks and months ahead. Updates will be posted on camp websites and sent to registered campers.
Camp 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 and a qualified staff leads daily enrichment activities, arts and crafts, ceramics, games, hiking and visits by special guests.
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, 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.
