Camp Rentals Upstate NY

We are the premier Camp Rentals Upstate NY Camp Grounds, Parents, and all future Lakota Families Are. Camp Lakota 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 magnificent Masten Lake with its sandy beaches and diverse waterfront sports has helped make Lakota a family tradition for 90 years. We are the best Camp Rentals Upstate NY, in the Catskills Mountains

Founded in 1924, and built on the grounds of an historic Sullivan County Estate and Hotel, Camp Lakota has been under continuous family ownership since its beginnings. Indeed, Camp Lakota has always been about family, and has been providing nurturing, safe, and exciting summers for co-ed campers for over 90 years.

Camp Rentals Upstate NY!

Each day we have seven activity periods, three in the morning, three in the afternoon and one after dinner. We have one elective in the morning, one in the afternoon, and after dinner is called Free-Play Plus. This way each camper gets to specialize in the areas they love.

Of our four scheduled activities we also make sure each bunk has a fun, well balanced schedule. We make sure that each bunk is scheduled daily for the waterfront, an art activity, a sport, and a specialty activity, like Zip Line, horseback, waterskiing or go-carts for example.

1. At camp, kids learn teamwork, i.e., working together for the benefit of something bigger than themselves: the team. This takes attention away from “me, me, me,” and turns it toward the value of investing in others.They learn that their relationships benefit from investment, and that the team benefits as a whole when individual relationships are strengthened. Contributing to the success of the group is empowering to each individual.2. The camp environment teaches resilience. Kids learn to fall then get back up time and time again. One example is the ropes course, a challenging outdoor, team-building activity that you often find at camp.Kids have to learn resilience to get through the course as they will undoubtedly fall, and have to get back up over and over. As they progress through the course their confidence builds, and in turn they accomplish a task that seems impossible… and accomplishment is always empowering.3. Kids learn to make decisions at camp. Camp experiences grow confidence and develop good decision making skills — especially when times are tough. He also learns who to accept guidance from, in a world that’s filled with some pretty bad advice on TV, in movies and among some friends.

4. Camp sets a kid up for trying new things, putting himself out there, and making decisions to get through various situations.

Living in a cabin, cooking food, climbing ropes, and overcoming obstacles are life accomplishments young people can develop that build strength of character, courage, determination, and focus on something bigger than themselves.

As parents, we know when children only accept comfortable situations, they find themselves limited in confidence, courage, and flexibility. The actual presentation of an unpleasant or unfamiliar situation at camp gives a child the opportunity to grow in ways he never would in his comfort zone.

Through new experiences, he’s pushed into positions to grow in life. And when teens learn to push themselves to grow, they begin to accumulate understanding of what it takes to be a productive, independent adult.

5. Help your child to grow up.

While more and more our culture allows people to seek out what’s enjoyable and avoid what’s unpleasant, camp nudges your child to move out of their comfort zone to overcome.

So while our conveniences make life easier in so many ways, there are experiences missing that provide growth, strengthening of values, confidence, and development for times of adversity. Those experiences need to come from somewhere, and I encourage my clients to go to camp and absorb all the life benefits they’ll find there.
