In everything Eagle Island does, we believe in inspiring and empowering young people to be confident, collaborative, and courageous. Due to the current pandemic, programming has been suspended for summer 2020. Check our website for virtual offerings.
A Children’s Camp in the Heart of the Adirondacks
Eagle Island Camp is situated on its own wooded island on Upper Saranac Lake surrounded by the Adirondack Mountains. Programs include Day Camp for all genders and Overnight (sleep-away) camp for girls. Their mission: In everything we do, we believe in inspiring and empowering young people to be confident, collaborative, and courageous.
An Active Day of Outdoor Exploration, Education & Fun
Daily camp activities include open waterfront time (swimming, kayaking, crafting, etc.), swim lessons, sailing instruction, STEM-inspired outdoor education, camper-choice activities, and camper-led play in the Peninsula, an open space for campers to explore and create their own fun. Other activities offered include nature education, team-building, crafts, and survival skills like fire-building and shelter-building.
Eagle Island Camp believes that the summer camp experience should serve as an extension of each camper’s education, so they place a high emphasis on hands-on activities geared toward each individual’s unique skills and abilities.

Much More Than a Summer Camp
