If you plan to visit our camp often this year, it might make sense to buy a season pass early.
Our camp is only open to ACA members – and we charge a $10 daily fee for each adult visitor ($5 for those under 18).
A season pass for an adult will cost you $65 – or $50 if you’re over 65 years old. It’s $30 for a junior (under 18). A family season pass (for 2 adults and their children under 18) costs $150.
You can purchase your 2021 season pass through PayPal now, or visit our camp director when you first enter camp and pay by cash, check or PayPal.
Camp will reopen on May 1st, so we’re planning for the coming season. We expect we’ll be operating with the same Covid safety rules we did last year.
Meanwhile, if you want to start planning your 2021 season:
Join or renew your ACA membership here: https://www.americancanoe.org/general/register_member_type.asp
Everyone who visits camp will need to be an ACA member – no guests or visitors will be allowed into camp. So sign up your friends and family now or we can help you sign up in camp.
If you have any trouble with the American Canoe Association membership site, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll try to help.
Camp is opening June 27th!
We’re also running a work weekend, because there’s lots to do to get ready for all our visitors.
Everyone is welcome to visit camp – keeping in mind that the swim area cannot be used until it is set up, and the boating docks cannot be used until they are safe. Those tasks should be completed before noon on Saturday.
Clubs may come this weekend to start setting up their facilities.
Cabin renters may come and set up their facilities.
Tent platform renters may put up their tarps.
Overnight stays are okay.
Members with boats can bring them to be stored (see the camp director to get a space and make payment, for in season and winter fees.)
Season passes will be sold – look for the camp director.
Don’t forget to sign in as usual.
All camp visitors must follow the Covid-19 Guidelines we have negotiated with Parks. See below for a link to the guidelines but they include wearing masks and social distancing.
Help get the Camp ready – Work weekend June 27 & 28
We’ll be setting up the swimming area, putting the boating docks in place, clearing paths of leaves and setting up the Pavilion. Other small tasks will be available too. We may begin some construction of new boat racks, if we have skilled volunteers with their own battery operated drills & drivers.
We’ll be working both Saturday and Sunday (June 27 & 28) from 8 am to 2 pm.
Come see the camp director to find out what you can help with.
Contact email@example.com if you want a PayPal invoice for your season pass and boat storage fees, or to ask any questions.

We can’t wait to see you!
The Camp Commitee is sad to say that the Palisades Interstate Parks Commission (PIPC) has informed us that the ACA Camp will not be opening on June 1st.
We will remain closed until further notice. PIPC has told us they are working towards getting the camps open as soon as they believe it is safe. We will update everyone as soon as this changes.
Remember – As long as the Camp is closed, no one is allowed to enter camp whether by vehicle or on foot.
Thank you for your patience in this difficult time.
Hoping to see you in camp very soon.
All the Camp Committee.
Hi Camp Folks:
We’re anticipating the opening of camp on June 1st – we’re still waiting for confirmation from NYS and PIPC.
Hopefully this date won’t be pushed back again!
It’s a strange time, and while everyone is eager to get out of the city and into the woods and on the water again, we all must be patient. No one may enter the ACA camp until we officially open.
We’re crossing our fingers! Stay safe – and look for updates on these pages.
