Sports and Arts Center at Island Lake was founded in 1985 based on a philosophy of individual attention and achievement. We make a conscious effort to cater to each of our staff member's and camper's individual interests and needs. Our goal is to provide an enjoyable yet educational summer for the entire camp. We do this by providing our children with a warm caring atmosphere in which they can choose their own activities. The rivalry and competition within the camp is played down. Island Lake is a family-oriented camp with a very warm nurturing environment. Every person in our camp is seen as a member of the family and is treated like one. The camp directors are accessible and easy to talk to. The camp is located in the northeast corner of Pennsylvania in the Pocono Mountains. It is 2 hours and 30 minutes from New York City and Philadelphia. Many staff members choose to visit these cities on their days off as well as Niagara Falls, Toronto, or Boston, to name a few others. The closest town is Hancock, NY, 11 miles away. It is convenient for entertainment and evenings off.
