The Camp Experience

A Letter From Jack Swan, Past camper, staff and owner (Since 1932!)

Welcome to the Pok-O-MacCready Family!

We are very proud that our camp has been owned and operated since Dr. Charles Robinson founded it in 1905.  Six generations of family has helped make our camp truly unique and a second family to 250 campers each summer.

Originally being an all boys camp named after the mountain overlooking camp, Pok-O-Moonshine grew through the help of Colonel and Mrs. H.T. Swan who ran it for over 20 years, when I took over ownership in the mid 1960’s.

Over the last 40 years we expanded, creating our sister camp, Camp MacCready in 1967 as well as our Outdoor Education Center in 1974 which offers year round school groups in the US and Canada an exciting outdoor leadership program.

The traditional summer camp experience is more important than ever in our fast-paced and plugged-in world. Campers get to appreciate the natural beauty of the Adirondacks while gaining lifelong friendships as well as self-confidence and teamwork skills.  I hope to see your camper at what certainly is “the greatest camp in the universe!”

The Outdoor Education Center is located on over 400 acres of land with a beautiful Adirondack lake surrounded by forests, trails and wilderness.

The Center is within an hours drive of the High Peaks Adirondack Region, three miles from Lake Champlain and across the lake from Burlington, VT.

For the past 50 years our mission at the Pok-O-MacCready Outdoor Education Center has been to create and encourage a sense of awe in the presence of nature, to build self confidence, to nurture self worth and to promote teamwork, communication and tolerance for students of all ages.


Pok-O-MacCready sits on a peninsula on
Long Pond in New York’s Adirondack
Park, just minutes from Lake Champlain.
Our campus contains over 400 acres of
woods and fields along two miles of
scenic waterfront surrounded by gentle
peaks – a perfect place to do any of the
countless activities camp offers!

Our boys camp is the longest running camp under
the continual ownership of one family
in the United States. What started as
an education and recreational summer
experience for a few young men has now
become a flourishing co-educational
camp for 300 campers each summer.
