Welcome To Southwoods Premier Four-Week Camp

Southwoods, sleepaway camp located in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York, is the premier four-week summer camp in the country and is world famous for being a community where children can grow, discover, build confidence and form lifelong friendships. We build our camp experiences around people.

Southwoods is a recognized leader in the youth development field. Campers continue to take their invaluable summer camp experiences from Southwoods with them into adulthood. They then return to us in the Adirondack Mountains as staff to help create those same experiences for the next generation of campers. Southwoods is a summer sleepaway camp institution families know they can trust!
