A co-ed retreat on beautiful Lake Regis in the Adirondack mountains, Camp Regis was founded in 1946 on the Quaker values of friendship and acceptance. Our philosophy has always been to provide a nurturing and wholesome atmosphere for kids, free from the challenges and complexities of modern life. Now celebrating our 70th year, these traditions are more relevant than ever.
Our camp serves diverse families seeking an escape from anonymity where children can explore their identities, their interests, and their world. All camps should be transformative experiences but Regis offers more; it offers honest, wholesome fun and opportunities for kids to grow, providing memories for a lifetime. Alumni are often quoted saying that their summers at Regis were the best days of their lives.
Unlike most camps, Regis is divided not by genders, but by ages. Teen camp (Applejack) is in a separate area from the Regis cabins, giving boys and girls of all ages the freedom to be “who they are” with peers, while still allowing younger and older siblings to interact. Each cabin is Adirondack styled, with several rooms, bathrooms, and a living room with a fireplace.
Both camps share a full canopy of trees, a common dining area, and a secluded cove waterfront perfect for enjoying all the activities needed to make for an unforgettable summer: swimming, water skiing, sailing, canoeing/kayaking, tennis, camping/climbing excursions, field trips, music, theater, arts & crafts and so much more.
Director Michael Humes is the son of original founders Earl and Pauline Humes. Joining the Regis family in 2016 are new co-directors Alyson Grubard (alum 1984-1988) and Rob Wallace (an avid hiker, climber and paddler with two camp-age kids of his own). Together, they’re looking forward to making the Camp Regis experience better than ever.
