About Our Summer Camp

A Tradition of Caring, A Summer of Fun

The Point O'Pines Camp Experience

On a beautiful peninsula nestled in the Adirondack Mountains overlooking beautiful Brant Lake, girls of all ages come together for seven fleeting weeks to create memories that will last a lifetime.  Every summer at Point O’Pines is filled with fun, friendships, learning and excitement.  Our campers develop and improve skills through high-level instruction, and are encouraged to try new things while learning about others and themselves.  Campers enjoy every moment of summer camp while they grow in confidence, leadership and self-esteem in a secure, community environment.

Our Summer Camp Community

In our Point O’Pines community, we cultivate a welcoming, comfortable camp environment. In our summer family, campers and staff are encouraged to respect one another’s important roles within our camp community. At Point O’Pines, having fun is always regarded as more important than winning, and the attributes of good citizenship – friendliness, honesty, generosity, and camp spirit – are held in the highest esteem.

Over 90% Of Our Campers Return Each Summer

Point O’Pines campers call their camp their summer home year after year. It is easy for campers to thrive at Point O’Pines because so many friends cheer them on, dozens of caring and skilled instructors show them the way, and a beautiful, serene environment where girls come together for seven weeks to create memories that will last a lifetime.

We Love To Welcome New Campers Into Our Family

First-Time Camper Guide

Our directors take great care to get to know all new campers individually before they come to camp.  By understanding each camper’s individual needs, we can arrange our campers into bunk situations according to their personalities, interests, and compatibility.  We connect our new campers with other new and returning campers before camp and every younger camper is paired with an older camp sister to provide a comfortable, friendly introduction to camp life.

What makes Point O’Pines the best camp for your daughter this summer? We’re glad you asked. First of all, we’d like to share why a summer at camp is important. It’s also important to know what you’re looking for when you search for a camp. For example, how does a traditional sleep-away camp like Point O’Pines compare to a specialty sports camp? We’d also like to share our love for upstate New York and explain why we’re an all-girls camp.
