Camp Overview 

Camp Lakota, located just 90 miles from New York City, sits high atop the Wurtsboro Hills in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. We are situated on 200 of the most beautiful acres of land. Our Masten Lake with its sandy beaches and diverse waterfront sports has helped make Lakota a family tradition for 90 years.

We offer a full range of land and water sports and a wide range of specialty activities, including horseback riding on campus, 150 ft zip line, 50 ft climbing wall, low ropes course, and waterskiing. 

Our tennis courts, beach volleyball courts, basketball courts, and hockey rinks are well lit for night activities. Two terrific heated swimming pools, also with lighting, allow campers to enjoy swimming both day and night.We also offer a comprehensive Theater and Music program at camp.
