Traditional Overnight Camps
Traditional Overnight Camps
Choosing a camp for your child can be a difficult decision. The warm, nurturing, family atmosphere that the camp provides has been a key factor in many families choosing Iroquois Springs.
At Iroquois Springs, the emphasis is always on participation, effort and attitude! We think that camp is that rare place where a child can be a winner. Iroquois Springs provides campers the opportunity to become part of a family, where they can take healthy risks, get rewarded for successes, and develop self-esteem and life skills. So whether a camper’s thing is sports, arts, hiking, or a little bit of everything, each and every camper at Iroquois Springs can find his or her place in the sun.
Iroquois Springs is a proud member of the American Camp Association, and is a fully accredited camp.

Less than a two hour drive from New York City, Iroquois Springs is cradled in the beauty of the Southern Catskills. An endless sea of woods surrounds our magnificent 120-acre campground, and a sensational sunset over the springs is truly a sight to behold.
The Iroquois Spring facility is impeccable and includes, among many other outstanding features, a spring-fed lake, an NCAA lighted and heated pool, a Field House, riding stables, nine tennis courts, two lighted roller hockey arenas, an indoor gymnastics center and an amphitheater. To match the needs of the program, we are committed to continually improving our facility.
All campers sleep in modern, well-appointed cabins equipped with electricity and a bathroom with showers.

Three and Six Week Sessions
Iroquois Springs offers families an option to choose from one of two FULL three-week sessions or a full-season camp experience of six weeks. In addition, campers who attend our first three-week session always have the option to extend their stay for the entire six weeks, if space is available. Whether campers choose three or six weeks, they will experience the entire time at camp as part of a cohesive group of friends and staff.
What are the benefits of three and six week sessions?
Camp starts on, or around, July 1st and ends on, or around, August 11th. With a later starting date, Iroquois Springs campers don’t have to rush from the end of school to the camp bus. And with an earlier ending date, there is plenty of time is left after camp for family time. In addition, campers coming from parts of the country where school starts a little earlier can partake in all of the final week’s activities!
Great Options for Families
Perhaps a three-week session fits the bill perfectly for your family. Or, this might be the first sleep away camp experience for your child — what better options than to choose a three-week session with the opportunity to extend to six weeks? If it is a full-season you are interested in, four weeks may be too short and eight weeks may be too long. In that case, six weeks is perfect!
