About Camp Jeanne d’Arc

Upstate New York Camp Jeanne d'Arc Summer Camp for GirlsIt’s hard to raise a confident young woman in today’s media-obsessed world. We provide a well-organized, tech-free summer camp experience focused on building strong girls, so you can empower your daughter with the skills and confidence she needs to succeed!

Camp Jeanne d’Arc (CJDA) is an all-girls sleepaway camp on pristine Lake Chateaugay 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, 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

At Camp Jeanne d’Arc, we are small-by-design. We have an average of 65 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 10 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. Last summer our camp family consisted of campers and staff from North and South America, Europe, Africa, and New Zealand! 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, 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

Wholesome All-Girls Camp

My daughter LOVES Camp Jeanne d’Arc, JDA brings so much joy to her. There are so many things that she loves about camp that she asks to go back every year and to go longer! Traditions are what she treasures most about JDA. She sings the songs from camp for weeks afterwards. My daughter started as a camper and she is now a CIT. She loves the responsibilities and takes pride in her work. Sandy is an awesome director and really cares and inspires the girls! JDA is a wholesome all-girls camp that is extremely welcoming! I highly recommend JDA!!
