Overnight, Day, and Family Camp Programs

Camp Abnaki provides a traditional all-boys sleep away summer camp program for ages 8 to 16, with an emphasis on character development, skill building and fun.  Boys are provided with an experience designed to foster personal growth and independence.  The friendships they make and memories they take away last a lifetime.  Camp also offers an all-boys day camp program for ages 6 to 10.

Camp Abnaki also has programs for families and teens. Our Family Camp Programs provide unique opportunities for family bonding, and our Counselor-in-Training program gives teens leadership skills they can use throughout their lives. 


Campers learn new skills and make new friends

Founded in 1901 by Byron "Dad" Clark, Camp Abnaki continues to provide a quality camping experience for boys. Located on a magnificent point of land at the southern tip of North Hero Island and surrounded by Lake Champlain, Camp Abnaki provides breathtaking views of Vermont's Green Mountains and the majestic Adirondacks of New York.

A tradition of commitment to the individual makes Abnaki what it is today, a camp that cares about a boy's needs and feelings. Our motto of "Help the Other Fellow" is still as true as it was in Dad Clark's days.

The Camp Abnaki Mission

“To provide young people with an opportunity for social, spiritual, mental and physical growth through participation in a community located in a natural setting and characterized by leadership that creates a climate of cooperation a concern for the individual, and the opportunity for interracial, intercultural, and interfaith experience.”
