The leadership and program are top quality, get to know more about the Camp Director. Here are some nice things people have had to say about us.
"From our first impression during the 2011 Memorial Day Camp-Out to the present, we've been delighted with Camp Scully, and thank you for making it such a special place with such fond memories for our family" - The Gruber Family
Camp Scully has six core values which guide our daily life: Service, Caring, Understanding, Love, Loyalty and Youthfulness. Campers learn to embody these values throughout the week through all of our programs. They can earn "letters" awarded daily for tasks such as helping others, displaying sportmanship, sharing and behaving. Our staff model these values consistently and encourage and motivate the campers to do likewise.
Camp Scully has 22 acres of land on which are 9 children’s cabins, playing fields, hiking trails, beach area, archery field, challenge course, campfire pits, game areas, a vegetable garden, a stage, a lean-to camping platform and recreation hall. Campers spend their week with 9 other children in their age group and two adult counselors. Cabins are split by gender and are in separate areas of the camp. Children arrive on Sunday afternoon and leave on Friday evening. Camp has an extensive waterfront area with kayaks, canoes and an inflatable water trampoline. Our challenge course is an extensive one with plenty of physical and mental obstacles for children including two 30 feet in the air. Camp has two archery ranges, a beginner range and a more advanced one with a unique “sniper” trail!
We are very excited this summer. As usual, all resident campers will share 3 meals a day served family style in our BRAND NEW dining hall. It's much bigger, with bathrooms and a magnificent view of the lake. An afternoon snack is also provided. To help incorporate our values, campers travel throughout their camp day with their cabin groups. Our popular camp store sells snacks, beverages and clothing items. Every overnight camper has a credit of $2 to start their week. This may be added to during registration.
Camp Scully is not a religious camp and does not offer religious services of any kind. While Camp Scully serves all children, it has been dedicated to serving children from low-income families since its inception. This commitment includes full or partial scholarships to large numbers of the participants. Without this support from Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany many children would not have the opportunity of attending summer camp.
