...We stay in Ogden Lodge, which is part of Skye Farm United Methodist Camp & Retreat Center in Warrensburg, New York, just off I-87, about 5 miles west of Lake George. We sleep in bunk beds in dormitory-style rooms. Each room has it own full bathroom!
Breakfast & dinner are served in the dining room by various camper "crews". After dinner we have devotional time, followed by a campfire & some fun. Lunches are self-made (everything provided) each morning to take along in your backpack for the day's hike.
After breakfast we carpool to a trailhead, hike/climb the mountain (this is not technical-style with ropes & special gear; we will be hiking along trails, following trail markers, cairns and blazes), have lunch on the summit and then hike back down to return to the lodge for dinner. It has become camp tradition to stop for ice-cream on the way back, so much so, that the "recommended ice-cream stop for the day" is also listed on your daily hike report.
Campers must be adults and should be in good physical condition, able to hike and breathe at the same time (Persons with asthma or other breathing issues may want to think twice about this camp- contact deans)
Hiking boots are strongly recommended
Campers provide their own transportation to and from camp
Camp starts at 7:00pm on Sunday and ends after breakfast the next Saturday
The cost of the week is $300, $50 is due with your registration and the remainder by orientation
Persons with special diet requirements may have an additional fee - contact deans
