Lakota’s Diverse Activities

Vinny teaching defenseCamp 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.

harris at thirdWe are looking forward to a great baseball season at Camp Lakota this summer. Under the guidance of our experienced baseball staff we will offer a strong baseball training program during our electives and through intercamp games. It is our goal to make sure campers of all ages can keep their skills sharp and improve their play with competitive intercamp games. We will focus on batting, fielding, and baserunning. And as part of the Catskill intercamp league, we will be playing against great competition throughout the summer. So get your mitts oiled up and your cleats ready, as we hit the fields in 2015.
