Since 2002, Camp Get-A-Way has been a place where you and your kids can play, connect, create, and bond in the great outdoors. Try new things like archery, swimming, fishing, and canoeing as a family. Share laughter and s’mores by the campfire. Create memories over tie-dye fun, camp crafts, and games. Find hope through the family resources and training. And start lasting friendships with other New York families facing similar challenges.
We know life often doesn't feel "normal" when you have a child struggling with an emotional, behavioral, or mental heath challenge. That’s why Camp Get-A-Way comes alongside families like yours to create a safe camp experience where families can just be families.
