St. Andrew's Camp

The summer programs at Saint Andrew’s
Camp in Jewell NY are “gearing-up” for
another summer of faith, fun, and fellowship.
Currently the camp is seeking additional
male counselors, and there’s always room for
dedicated volunteers to support the activities
of the five-week resident camping schedule
in the beautifully rustic setting along the
shore of Lake Oneida.

Programs begin on 28 June and conclude on
1 August. Of course, campers may register
now to attend! For complete information and
on-line registration, visit the camp website.
