About: What if this summer was a return to closeness? One where every day, and every night, was magical. Where your child could rediscover who they are. A place where they could be part of something bigger than themselves. Welcome to Camp Stonewall!

Camp Stonewall is a co-ed sleepaway camp nestled on the Marianapolis Prep School campus in Thompson, Connecticut. Serving campers entering grades 2-10, they offer 45+ daily activities in sports, arts and crafts, music, dance, culinary and theatre. The Camp Stonewall community values and promotes independence, flexibility, and character among all campers and staff. 

Here's what makes Camp Stonewall one of a kind:

  • Stonewall attracts campers and staff from the United States and from around the globe. This diverse community experience empowers every camper to learn more about their world - from right here at camp.
  • When it comes to activities, it's totally up to the kids! Each camper chooses what he or she wants to do every day. Whether it's kayaking, friendship bracelets, improv, hip hop, baseball, or gymnastics, campers at Camp Stonewall get to try it all. 
  • In the evenings, the whole camp comes together for unforgettable special events and activities. Stonewall staff encourages each child to try new things in the spirit of creativity and healthy competition.
  • Campers are grouped in bunks by grade and gender and live right down the hall from their counselors. Camp Stonewall believes that this comfortable, nurturing environment allows kids to adapt quickly to being away from home so they can take full advantage of the freedom and responsibilities fostered at sleepaway camp.

About: Make your way to Camp Chateaugay! New experiences, new challenges and loads of fun and laughter - it's what summer should be! 

This sleepaway camp, located on Chateaugay Lake in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, offers an incredible collection of unique activities and modern, yet rustic facilities, all in a beautiful natural setting. What makes this camp truly special are the people - from the campers, who come from all over and become new and lasting friends, to the counselors and specialists, who mentor and serve as "older brothers and sisters," and finally, to the owners who get right in there and set the standard for a summer of fun and adventure.

The warm, welcoming atmosphere makes this a perfect option for the first-time sleepaway camper. Your child, age 7-15, will enjoy the ultimate summer camp experience - a traditional camp setting with camp-wide traditions and celebrations, lakefront access to a variety of water sports, a heated pool, riding facilities, sports fields, a 12,000 sq. ft. indoor gym, dance studio, arts center and so much more! Campers spend each day in two camp-directed activities alongside their cabin-mates, pushing them to try new things and discover new talents. They then have the the freedom to choose 3-4 more daily activities based on their individual interests.

Each week introduces new options to choose from and popular activities include Animal Care, Archery, Glassblowing, Sailing, Horseback Riding, Theater (offering 2 musicals per summer), Waterskiing and Wakeboarding - to learn more about the programs offered at Camp Chateaugay, check out the videos HERE. All programs are led by experienced instructors who have undergone extensive training, offering each camper a safe, encouraging environment.

Campers are housed alongside campers of the same age/gender in cabins outfitted with electricity and full bathrooms. All meals are taken in The Big House - a place that encourages community and bonding through singing, dancing and a whole lot of fun! At the end of the day, campers can enjoy campfires and a visit to the onsite Aurora Borealis Creamery for a sweet treat!
