An authentic summer camp located in the Adirondack Mountains on beautiful Chateaugay Lake with over 150 acres of magnificent fields and woods…JDA offers girls, ages 7-16, from all over the world a chance for a fun summer adventure filled with friends, swimming, sailing, horseback riding, archery, riflery, hiking, camping out, surprises and lots more! Campers are in Swiss chalet style cabins with large screened windows and indoor bathrooms and showers. Our experienced and supportive counselors and staff give special attention to each and every girl. We offer 2,3,4,5, and 7 week sessions.
This was our nine year old daughter's first time at sleep-away camp; she went for four weeks and loved, loved, loved JDA! She liked the girls in her cabin and meeting girls from all around the US and world, the staff, the traditions and routines, and new challenges like water-skiing. The experience has given her a lot of confidence. She is looking forward to next summer already. - Father of 1st time camper from NY
Thanks for all the pictures you posted that helped us parents feel connected with camp throughout the summer. Thanks again for allowing my daughter to be a part of such a wonderful camp experience. The increased maturity and personal growth she gained at camp is clearly evident to us. We are grateful. - Mother of 1st time camper from CT

This summer was my daughter's first time at CJDA, and she was absolutely happy, she enjoyed it from the very first minute and the only problem was taking her away from there, she enjoyed the friends, the counselors, the activities, the staff, the food… everything!! She couldn't love it more!! She's looking forward to going back next summer. – Mom of 1st time camper from Spain
