Traditional Camp

Confidence to build character and become a leader

At Overnight Camp children discover opportunities to be truly independent. With all this independent choice comes more responsibility, especially as campers grow up through camp programs. Campers develop confidence and character to eventually become leaders at camp and in the world.

Each cabin is staffed with two Counselors who live in the cabin with their campers. It is the primary responsibility of these counselors to ensure the well-being of your child. A number of age-related cabins form a village, led by an experienced Village Head. Counselors and Village Heads work with your camper, providing encouragement while helping them grow socially, emotionally, and physically each day. Campers in Traditional Camp live in Keuka, Craig, Wells, or Walmsley Village based on their age, from age 7-15.

Elective Based Scheduling

Campers get the opportunity to requests the activities that they do every day.  Prior to arrival at camp, they’ll rate their top ten Elective choices and the Program Director will create a schedule unique to them made up of four of their choices. Campers are guaranteed their top choice class as part of their schedule. Campers will have the opportunity to get to know their Counselors, Village Heads, and all the Activity Specialists on Sunday following check-in and their Swim Party.

Camper Placement

Campers are placed in cabins with other children, generally within one year of age/grade of each other. Villages are based on age ranges and may fluctuate week to week depending on the age makeup of that session’s campers. While we encourage families to allow their children to make new friends at camp, we will honor one mutual cabinmate request.

Campers also have the option to sign up for waterskiing. They may opt to take a daily Waterskiing class instead of one Elective.

Health

Camp Cory takes very seriously the responsibility of providing all campers a healthy camping experience. We maintain a well-equipped Infirmary with qualified medical personnel on-site 24 hours a day. All medications are checked in at the Health Center and distributed as indicated on medical forms. In addition, our Counselors hold current First Aid and CPR certifications and are thoroughly trained to properly handle emergency situations.
