Vacation with Purpose

"CAMP-of-the-WOODS is the most beautiful Christian setting I could ever imagine here on Earth."

Experiences like this are what Camp is built on. Individuals and families congregating in the middle of God's creation to grow closer to Him and to each other. Through each chapel service, concert, excursion, activity, and interaction, we celebrate the fact that Christ is at the center of it all. In this coming season, it is our prayer that each guest who comes through our gate will see Jesus in some way.

Weeks are beginning to fill, so register before partial week reservations open up on May 15, 2018, for the best availability. Visit us online at or call (518) 548-4311.

Conference Season
The snow has left Speculator, NY, but Conference Season at CAMP-of-the-WOODS is still in full swing. Our staff is preparing and praying for the many youth and adult retreat groups headed our way in the coming weeks. These retreats are some of the most incredible times of fellowship that we have the privilege to be a part of, and there is something truly special about watching these groups come together in the name of the Lord.

Are you interested in bringing your group to Camp? We have openings for your group this spring (including Memorial Day Weekend), as well as many other weekend later in the fall and winter. It's not too early (or too late) to secure a date. Whether you're a group of young adults, youth, women, or men, groups love CAMP-of-the-WOODS for our Christ-centered atmosphere, pristine facilities, delicious food, and dedicated staff.

"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God's people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In Him, the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit. " - Ephesians 2:19-22
