About Camp Jeanne d’Arc

Upstate New York Camp Jeanne d'Arc Summer Camp for GirlsCamp Jeanne d’Arc (JDA) is an all-girls sleepaway camp on pristine Lake Chateaugay in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York. Girls ages 7-17 are invited to join the Camp JDA family and make our 100-acres of woodland forest their summer home. Our traditional, well-balanced program offers the classic camp favorites, as well as a variety of “choice activities” every day.


Here’s What Makes Us Special!

All Girls

All Girls Summer Camp in Upstate New York

At Camp Jeanne d’Arc our goal is to help your camper Find Her Voice, Uncover Her Talents, Discover Her Passion, and Realize Her Value! Without gender distractions, your daughter is more likely to accept leadership roles, take more risks and try new activities. Let’s hear it for Girl Power!

Small By Design

All Girls Summer Camp, Small by Design

At Camp Jeanne d’Arc, we are small-by-design. We have an average of 75 campers at any one given time. These smaller numbers allow us to pay more personal attention to each one of our campers.  Each cabin has an average of 10 campers with 2 to 3 counselors attending to each cabin.

Cultural Diversity

At Camp Jeanne d’Arc we host campers and staff from all over the globe. Last summer our camp family consisted of campers and staff from North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia; six of the seven continents! It’s more than summer camp, it’s a cultural experience!

It’s All About Traditions

Our Camp Jeanne d’Arc traditions make us one-of-a-kind!

From “Christmas in July” to “Feather Picking”; “Fourth of July” to “Sundaes on Sunday”, we’ve always got something special on the horizon. But it’s not all about the past, campers are encouraged to forge new traditions of their own.

Delicious, Healthy Meals

Our delicious, healthy meals are served family style.

Campers are encouraged to try everything, but just in case they can’t find anything they like, a full salad bar is offered with every meal. Vegetarian, gluten free, and other special dietary needs can be accommodated upon request.

Family Owned and Operated

Sandy and Randy Abbott are the owners and directors of Camp Jeanne d’Arc.

Having four children of their own, the Abbotts understand what it takes to care for their campers. They are “hands-on” directors and take part in every aspect of camp life. Your daughter’s safety and happiness are their top priorities!


The Best Place for Girls to Be Themselves

Camp Jeanne d’Arc has become my daughter’s home away from home. She has grown and learned so many things. The most wonderful thing I saw was her increased ability to take on challenges and to use that confidence in all aspects of her life. Thanks for being the best place for girls to be themselves.
