Camp Little Notch is located within the Adirondack Park in Fort Ann, New York. Situated on 2300 acres of pristine wilderness, including an 80-acre private lake, Little Notch provides the perfect setting for outdoor adventure, personal growth, new friendships, and community building.
Campers are assigned to live in campsites of 12-24 girls according to age. Girls live in groups of four in platform tents or cabins, with four to five staff in a centrally located tent within the campsite. Each campsite has a washhouse and latrine, campfire circle, and cabin for gatherings, cookouts, and activities.
Two friends may request to be assigned to the same unit as long as they are in the same age group and request each other. We do our best to honor these requests. Campers can expect to live with new friends in their tent or cabin and make new friends while participating in camp activities.
The food at Camp Little Notch is the best! We take pride in our wholesome, tasty, and kid-friendly menus with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables (local and organic whenever possible). Three meals a day are served in the dining hall and snacks are available as needed. Campers have the opportunity to cook out or “pack-out” during each session and are involved in planning these meals. Please contact us if your camper has special dietary needs.
