Camp Little Notch

Camp Little Notch (CLN) is an inspiring summer camp in the Adirondack Mountains with year-round community events. CLN is owned and operated by Friends of Camp Little Notch, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2010.

Located at the base of the Adirondacks in upstate New York, Camp Little Notch is situated on 443 acres of pristine wilderness, including an 80-acre private lake providing the perfect setting for outdoor adventure, personal growth, new friendships, and community building.

Camp Little Notch is a place where all are welcome! Campers are grouped by similar age and discover their strengths and unique voices as we support them through the transition to adulthood. Little Notch connects campers of diverse backgrounds with each other, positive mentors, and the land. We provide opportunities to develop responsibility, resourcefulness, wellness, creativity, and teamwork skills. Activities include swimming, canoeing, sailing, team building, ropes course, fishing creek walks, wildlife observation, hiking, outdoor cooking, arts and crafts, music, overnight camp-outs, and so much more!


Summer Camp for Girls - July 7-27, 2018

The heart and soul of Little Notch programming is our Summer Camp for Girls, an inspiring and authentic wilderness camp program for girls ages 7-17. Against an unplugged, unhurried backdrop of pristine natural beauty, girls experience the freedom to choose a self-directed program under the guidance of caring counselors. Campers and their parents have told us how much they value the opportunity for a girls-only experience, without the pressures of school, sports and social media. At Little Notch girls have the freedom to be themselves, and everyone's voice is heard.

Camp Little Notch is open from mid-May through mid-
October, for everyone to enjoy. Special programs and community camping events include:

  • Spring and Fall Stewardship Weekends
