New York Sleep Away Camp

Hello Campers, Parents, and all future Lakota Families. New York Sleep Away Camp, 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 New York Sleep Away Camp 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.

Our campus radiates out from the original estate mansion that was built in the early 1900’s. We now use this building as our Arts & Crafts center. We also offer a comprehensive Theater and Music program at camp, producing shows and concerts throughout the summer. Call today to learn more about the Camp in the Catskills.

Camp Lakota has a wide range of exciting and diverse activities. Our campers participate in all of these great activities throughout the summer and each camper, through our elective program (three choices daily), can focus on their favorite activities and those activities in which they have found new interest.

As you will see below – we offer a wide spectrum of activities all supervised by experienced staff who know how to motivate each camper, teach them the skills they will need to participate and excel – and who know how to support and encourage each camper no matter their level of achievement.

The Lakota program promises to keep every day exciting and invigorating and through our large offering of activities every camper will discover and achieve new goals each and every day.
