Camp Tours and Home Visits
We’d love to show you around our summer home! We offer private tours of camp in the fall and spring, as well as while camp is in session. For prospective families in the Tri-state area, our Director, Owen Langbart or Assistant Director, Andy Hicks, are happy to come to your home to talk to your family about camp. If you’re interested in setting up a home visit or tour, please contact us
