Lourdes Camp is currently closed for the week due to algae bloom.
We were working in conjunction with the Onondaga Health Department where as of this morning several blue green algae blooms were found along the waterfront. Unfortunately we not only use Skaneateles Lake for recreation but it is also our main water supply.
While this is a hard decision the safety of our campers and staff is our first priority. Parents who have campers enrolled in camp for Week 7 should pick them up at the earliest convenience.
We apologize for any inconvenience.Facebook

2018 Counselor-in-Training Program (Age 15)
The Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program is a very competitive program that is designed to take former campers (15 years of age) who have demonstrated a strong desire to work with children and a love of camp and give them the training and skills associated with being a staff member. Preference is generally given to those who have attended camp in previous summers as campers. More information can be found in the CIT Application linked below..
CIT’s will spend two weeks at camp Week 1 and Week 5 and you must attend both weeks.
CIT Week 1 & 5
Week 1: July 1st – 6th Week 5: July 29th – August 3rd
Donate to Lourdes Camp
For 75 years Lourdes Camp has been giving under privileged children in the Central New York community the opportunity to spend a week at camp. This program has been offered to children of families that otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to attend camp due to their families financial situation.
The Campership program is funded by alumni, parents of current campers and generous corporate gifts from people all over the community and beyond. If you would like to donate a Campership in your name please click the button below. If you would like to just make a donation to be used to create Camperships you may do the same.
There is no donation too big or too small and a little goes a long way in creating memories for a child that last a lifetime. Please feel free to contact me directly if you’d like to know more.
