About Camp Jeanne d’Arc

Upstate New York Camp Jeanne d'Arc Summer Camp for Girls

You love your daughter, and want the very best for her. You want her to be the strong, smart, independent and confident young woman you know she can be. The problem is, the world is working against her. Our girls are being torn down. They’re being told that they aren’t good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, and they don’t have what it takes to make it. Schools aren’t enough to right this wrong. Sadly, families alone, although we try hard, aren’t enough. We need each other!

Camp Jeanne d’Arc is on a bold mission to help families build strong girls

Camp Jeanne d’Arc (CJDA) is an all-girls sleepaway camp on pristine Chateaugay Lake in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York. Girls ages 7-16 are invited to join the CJDA family and make Camp Jeanne d’ Arc their summer home. Our well-organized, technology-free program offers the classic camp favorites, as well as a variety of “choice activities” every day.

 

Here’s What Makes Us Special!

All Girls

Build confidence at an all girls summer camp

At Camp Jeanne d’Arc our goal is to help your daughter Find Her Voice, Uncover Her Talents and Passions, 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

Learn to sail at summer camp New York

At Camp Jeanne d’Arc, we are small by design. We have an average of 90-100 campers at any given time. These smaller numbers allow us to pay more personal attention to each one of our campers.  Each cabin has an average of 12 campers with 2 to 3 counselors attending to each cabin.

Diversity

At Camp Jeanne d’Arc we host campers and staff from all over the globe. Our camp family consisted of campers and staff from North, South and Central America; Europe; Africa; Canada and New Zealand! It’s more than summer camp, it’s a cultural experience!

No Tech Zone

Camp Jeanne d’Arc is a 100% no-tech zone! Communication is encouraged through letter writing and Bunk Notes. Phones will be collected upon arrival and returned at departure.

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, nut-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!

TESTIMONIALS

No Place Makes Me Feel Happier Than At Camp

I’m truly thankful for that day in late July when my 10-year old self decided to take a risk, and get out of the car, and say goodbye to my parents. Six years later I’ve grown into a leader, and have learned to really embrace who I am. I have become much more self-confident, independent and I better appreciate the importance of friendship. There is no place that makes me feel happier than at camp.
