Summer Camp Stays Warm During the Winter with Annual Weekend Celebration

Winter Weekend 2013
Winter Weekend 2013

As snow and temperatures both begin to fall, the last thing on people’s mind is summer camp!  That is unless you attend Southwoods Camp, one of the Northeast's premier traditional sleep-away camps. Southwoods Summer Camp creates opportunities for new and returning campers to enjoy the warmth of the summer camp all year long.  On January 24th, 2014 Southwoods campers will reunite for the 16th Annual Winter Weekend celebration. The popular summer camp invites campers to spend a weekend filled with good friends and lots of fun. Scott Ralls, Owner/ Director of Southwoods shared, “This delicious escape from the normal school year pressures provides both our new and returning campers a taste of what the summer is going to be like. We find it makes anticipation for summer even greater!” From the moment the deluxe video motor coaches roll out on Friday evening from various metro NY/NJ areas, campers and staff work to create and rekindle friendships. Upon arrival at The Great Escape Lodge in Lake George, no time is wasted as everyone jumps into their bathing suits to enjoy the amazing water park. After slip ‘n’ sliding down the water slides and catching waves at the surf station, the campers and staff all enjoy great snacks and a special visit from some Looney Tunes guests. The next morning many of the campers will head towards the slopes of Gore Mountain to enjoy a day of skiing, while others will head to Southwoods Camp for some snowy fun! Once the group arrives at Southwoods, located on pristine Paradox Lake, in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains, snow ball fights and lots of sledding are sure to happen! After s’mores and hot chocolate are enjoyed, and the campfire is starting to burn low, Southwoods will once again head back to the Lake George area for some additional water park fun. On Sunday morning campers and staff will say good bye to the Adirondacks. As they head home, they stop for some great food and to bowl a few frames at a great Rock and Bowl Bowling Alley. Camp parent Risa Crandall shared, “Harrison and Ella look forward to the Southwoods' Winter Weekend all fall; they don't stop talking about getting to be at the indoor water-park with their Southwoods friends, snow skiing at Gore, the amazing sledding at camp and how much fun they have snow tubing behind Scott’s Red Ranger. They have enjoyed it so much that their 8 year old sister Sienna will be joining them this year.”

Southwoods Camp creates fun and unique memories all year round.  They invite everyone to come play with them this summer. For more information about all the programs Southwoods has to offer you can visit www.southwoods.com.
