Parental Concerns

 

Be assured that student is our top priority and that we want your child to have the best week of his or her life.

 

Supervision at camp includes local adult teachers/leaders who already know your child and who  go through camp with their teenage guests, overseeing and experiencing the same activities that the students do. Furthermore, there is a property staff of over 40 additional adult workers, including a camp physician and an EMT, who live on the camp premises. ​The overall ratio of adult supervision to teenagers is about 1:7. In addition, male and female housing is clearly defined, separated, and chaperoned. As a Christian organization, we also help teenagers learn about God, but we do so in a way that protects every child’s right and ability to make his or her own decision regarding faith issues.

 

For additional information, please visit the official Saranac Village website, where you can learn about the camp, the facilities, and the incredible surroundings. If you have any unanswered questions, please call/TXT our office at (201) 777-0-AYL or email us.  

 

We are certain that your child will have an incredible experience, and we do not want your son or daughter to miss out!
