Awesome place for children to experience nature, get used to living in a community and learn a whole variety of skills. Lot of programs to choose in a stunning environment, experienced counselors and activity instructors.

As a former Cayuga camper myself this was my first choice when researching camps for my children, I was thrilled to see that over the years it has only gotten better! Cayuga has been owned and run by the same family for years, the owner has a love of giving kids an amazing summer camp experience and is always adding new activities to the wide variety of activities they offer. From onsite horseback riding at no extra charge to trapeze, they have it all covered. They also offer both pool and lake and a free choice program that my kids love. My son can't wait for his 3rd summer and my daughter for her 2nd...they are creating the same life long friendships and experiences that I did so many years ago!

My daughter has been attending Cayuga for the past five summers. She gets homesick every year and every year the Division Directors and counselors work with her to help her adjust. The personal attention given by the staff can't be beat. The kids are nice and the variety of activities are plentiful.

Have had my children attend camp here for years. It has been a very positive and growing experience for them. I have always found the atmosphere positive and would not hesitate to recommend to my friends.

Cayuga is my home away from home, it will always hold a special place in my heart and when I have my own kids I cannot wait to take them for the summer so they can share the love I have for this place!

I worked there one summer and brought my 10yr old granddaughter. Both us absolutely loved this camp! So much to do! Different activities every day, kept her active and happy all day. The experiences she got from Cayuga she would never have been able to do anywhere else. Her all time favorite was learning the trapeze and of course all the activities at the lake. As a grandmother and a nurse it was a very safe place to be, which is every parents first concern.I would go back again if my job allowed me off all summer. She'd be packed now to go in June. We both made a lot of great friends there.

Anti-Semitism Tolerated Initially, I thought I had found a reasonably priced coed camp with some nice perks including horseback riding at no additional cost and day trips to baseball games of Yankee farm team. However, once the kids were home from their first summer I started to become concerned about a number of issues, including lax attention by nursing staff, poor communication when issues came up while kids were at camp, disparate treatment of campers who were children of staff and most alarmingly a tolerance for anti-semitism. Considering a large percentage of paying campers come from Jewish families I found it difficult to believe that the owner would allow any anti-semitism and was sure the issues would be promptly addressed once brought to his attention. Unfortunately, my confidence was misplaced and the owner tolerated comments by staff member's child who was camper such as "I like that Jewish kids wear yamakas because I know who to avoid." I will not allow my children to return.
