Hope 7's Summer Camp

Our summer camp program is available for children ages 5 to 15, offering an opportunity to enjoy nature five days a week while participating in enrichment programs, including STEM, music, and art topics. Teenagers in the program can join through our Counselors in Training (CIT) Programming, allowing them to gain work experience and additional perks such as banking assistance. The New York State Office of Child and Family Services licenses our summer camp program.

 ​Each day during camp, we travel by chartered school bus to a state park where children can enjoy hiking, arts and crafts, nature centers, and swimming. Each week is also designed with a theme with correlating activities to keep the children engaged and excited about learning. Special events and trips occur throughout the program, such as to Liberty Ridge Farms, Berkshire Museum, Hancock Shaker Village, and many more. Lunch and an afternoon snack are provided daily at no charge.

This program is staffed by highly experienced, educated, and trained counselors, as well as a Camp Director. Most staff members receive their First Aid and CPR certification prior to the beginning of camp. Lifeguards are also on duty at all parks and pools for swimming.

Full-time, part-time, and family rates are available! For more information, please call 518-272-8029 or email

This program is partially funded by the Rensselaer County Department for Youth and the New York State Office of Child and Family Services.
