Aldersgate is a camp and retreat center owned and operated by the North Central New York Conference of the United Methodist Church. We are located 1 hour north of Utica, NY, on the western edge of the Adirondack Park. We open our facility to churches, educational groups, and other nonprofit organizations without regard to religious affiliation. We can serve groups ranging from 8 to 300 people, depending upon the season.
Our site boasts over 200 wooded acres, a beautiful hiking trails, and land on THREE Adirondack Lakes (Pleasant, Brantingham, and Lake of the Pines). In addition to providing facilities for groups to conduct their own retreats meetings, worship services, and programs, we can assist with program planning, guide groups through our low ropes course, conduct retreats and workshops, lead singing and games, and provide supervision for recreation activities.
In the summer months (Mid June to Mid August) we operate as a Christian youth camp. All youth from ages 5 to 18 are invited to spend a week or more in one of our exciting summer programs.
