Cayuga's natural landscape divides 350 acres into two separate campuses on the same estate. This is a unique feature that distinguishes Cayuga from other traditional summer camps! Each campus is located on opposite sides of our lake and operates self-sufficiently with its own Dining Hall, Gymnasium, Creative Arts Center, Swimming Pool, Activity Sites, and Infirmary. With two separate campuses, we can provide two separate programs that are geared to the different age groups on each campus.
The camper population on Junior Campus is approximately 120 girls and 120 boys. Campers entering 1st grade through 8th grade, who are 13 years old and younger, reside on Junior Campus. Campers entering 8th grade who are 13 years old before camp have the option to reside on Teen Campus.
The Junior Campus Program is geared to the interests of this particular age group. The daily activity offerings, evening programs, and special events focus solely on these interests, which are different from those on Teen Campus. "Having our own campus without the big kids" is the popular answer given by our campers when asked, "What do you like best about Junior Campus?"
JUST THE RIGHT SIZE
Rather than operating one large camp for all campers (like most summer camps), Cayuga operates two smaller campuses: one campus for our youngsters and the other for our teens. On each campus you'll find the camper population to be just the right size! We're large enough to provide a challenging and varied activity program that caters to each and every age group. At the same time, we're small enough to allow our entire staff to know your child personally. We believe our small camper population on each campus maintains the family atmosphere that characterizes Camp Cayuga.
