Camp Olmsted


At Olmsted, we provide good old fashioned traditional camping – hiking, swimming, sports, arts, dancing, singing and a campfire to provide the glowing light (instead of a computer screen) to hear stories and roast marshmallows.

Camp Olmsted is located in Cornwall on Hudson, NY which is approximately 60 minutes from the George Washington Bridge.  Camp Olmsted has been serving children since 1901 and currently offers residential and day summer programs for youth ages 6 to 15 years.  During our programs campers engage in activities that are designed to build their self-esteem and enhance their social skills.  Our program and facilities are accredited by the American Camp Association and licensed by the Department of Health.

The cost for Camp Olmsted is $470 per child for overnight camp (which includes a program fee of $435 and a non-refundable $35 registration fee) and $160-$185 per week for day camp (depending on the session and including the non-refundable registration fee of $25).

There are discounts for each additional child and for attendance at multiple sessions.  Full and partial scholarships are available based on financial need and require appropriate documentation.
