Mark Butt's Gathering of Men

$130

In a rare opportunity, men of all ages, colors, creeds, and sexual orientations gather each year to share our experiences as men and explore what it means to be a man. We find ourselves renewed and reinvigorated as we talk openly about our lives and hopes. There are workshops to partake in and hiking or canoe trips to join. In all of our activities, from preparing meals together to sharing at the campfire, we enjoy the fellowship of other men.

June 16-18 Work Weekend

June 16th - June 18th, 2017

$15

Work Weekends are a great opportunity for community members new and old to spend time together at camp while bettering our beloved facilities. If you find shared work deeply satisfying then our work weekends are perfect for you. If you are a long-time Unirondacker, work weekends are a pleasurable way to reconnect. If you have never been to camp before, Work Weekends are a relaxed and casual way to make new friends and get to know Unirondack.

The cost is $15 toward food for the weekend and after working through the morning and some in the afternoon the rest of the weekend is free for you to enjoy camp. A snack is provided on Friday evening and we offer breakfast until Sunday Morning.

2017 Youth Summer Camp

July 2nd - August 26th, 2017

$0

NOTE: Initial registration is limited to 3 sessions per camper to enable as many campers as possible to be able to attend camp. (You may register for a 4th session after May 1 if there is space remaining.) Camperships are available for families who cannot afford the full cost of camp.

2017 Campership Application deadline is April 15, 2017.

Gender-Inclusive Housing

New to 2017 is the option for a gender-inclusive cabin assignment for all sessions. The last few years we have offered this housing option with great success in our Ballou sessions and have decided to open this option up to other sessions as well. The cabin will be staffed by multiple staff of different genders and will fill up as space is needed. These cabins are by parent permission. If you have questions, feel free to email us. If you or your child change their mind you can simply login to your profile and edit it or shoot us an email and we can do it for you.

Please consider donating to the Campership Fund to ensure that we have the funds to enable those less fortunate to attend.

Session Dates:

  • July 2 - 8 - Barton (Ages 9 - 12)

  • July 9 -15 - Channing 1 (Ages 12 - 14)

$25 for your child's camp store account is included in the $785 camp fee. Trip Camp is not on camp to visit the camp store so the $25 is not included in the registration for that week.

WAITING LIST

If your session is full, select a waitlist registration as an add on. This will allow you to complete a registration form but will not charge you any deposit. If a spot becomes available, we will invoice you.
