MORE TRIPS AT CAMP CAYUGA!
Backpacking Trips take place at Ricketts Glen State Park which is located less than an hour from Cayuga. The Park boasts a series of wild, free-flowing waterfalls, including “Ganoga Falls” that’s 94 feet high! Ricketts Glen is one of the most scenic areas in Pennsylvania. It’s a fun trip of hiking, sightseeing, and camping-out! Backpacking trips are optional and camper participation is voluntary. All campers are eligible to attend as long as you’re deemed physically mature to hike the terrain. You’re required to supply your own sleeping bag, hiking boots & water canteen (or sports bottle). All other necessary items & equipment (backpacks, energy snacks, food, etc.) are supplied by Camp Cayuga. Backpacking Trips are typically scheduled every 2 weeks, and are included in the tuition. No advance registration form is required. If you want to go, you simply sign-up in the morning on the day of the trip. These trips don’t appear on the “Calendar of Events” webpage since the dates are random.
GOLF COURSE TRIPS
Trips to the local golf course for a round of golf (9 holes) are scheduled about once a week. We play at Cricket Hill Golf Course, which is located about 30 minutes from camp. One Cayuga staff member is assigned to each foursome. Camp Cayuga supplies the golf clubs/bags and golf balls. (You are permitted to bring your own golf clubs to camp.) Golf trips are optional and incur an extra charge. All campers are eligible to participate as long as you’re deemed qualified to play on a public golf course. No advance registration form is required. You simply sign-up in the morning on the day of the golf trip. For Golf Trip dates, go to “Calendar of Events”, or click here.

They’re scheduled about once every 2 weeks for qualified campers who have passed Cayuga’s “deep water test” and “canoe test”. Canoe Trips are included in the camp tuition. Rafting Trips incur an additional charge. For trip fee information, go to “Dates and Fees”, or click here. For trip dates, go to “Calendar of Events”, or click here.
PIZZA PARTY TRIPS
Trips to the local pizzeria take place on special occasions. It's a short 10-minute drive from camp, which gives you enough time to chill-out & enjoy 'great' pizza for lunch, and still return to camp on-time for your afternoon activities. It's not only the delicious pizza that makes these trips so popular - it's simply fun to get off-camp once in a while. These trips don't appear on the “Calendar of Events” webpage since the dates are random.
Trips to local playhouses are scheduled when the play’s subject matter is deemed appropriate for children. Theatre Trips take place at 2 playhouses, both within 30-45 minutes from camp. No registration form or advance sign-up is required. Campers simply sign-up at camp. Theatre Trip dates do not appear on our "Calendar of Events" since the dates are random.
VISITING DAY MYSTERY TRIP
Campers, who are not expecting visitors, are required to attend the Visiting Day Mystery Trip. The only excused children are those who have written parental permission to remain at camp with an authorized adult. It’s an action-packed full-day trip. We depart camp before 10:00am (when Visiting Day begins) and return to camp after 4:00pm (when Visiting Day is over). This trip is not included in the camp tuition. The trip fee includes admission fees, lunch meal, and roundtrip transportation. For trip fee information, go to “Dates & Fees”, or click here.
ALL CAMP TRIPS
Prior to the arrival of our campers, all Cayuga staff members receive training in off-camp trip procedures, general transportation safety regulations, emergency accident & medical procedures, group management procedures, and have familiarized themselves with Cayuga’s emergency communication plan. Cayuga follows the trip guidelines set forth by the American Camping Association (ACA) and has exceeded their standards on every inspection. We are committed to the highest safety standards established for the camping industry and are proud to operate an accredited ACA camp. Safety is #1 at Camp Cayuga!
