The lake is private and reserved exclusively for our campers and staff. It is a 13-acre natural stream-fed lake that’s just the right size. It’s large enough to accommodate a wide range of watercraft activities, and small enough for lifeguards to provide proper supervision. The lakefront features 250 feet of beach, a large swimming area, separate fishing dock, floating raft with a water slide, sand volleyball court, and a boat house for storage of equipment.


    There’s so much to do at the lake! The activity program features over 50 watercrafts including canoes, sail boats, row boats, paddle boats, kayaks, windsurf boards, paddle boards, tubing, and fishing. You’ll also have loads of fun jumping off the 25’ water trampoline, sliding down the 14’ floating iceberg, walking on the rolling log, and chilling out with your friends on the big floating blanket. All lake activities are offered daily as elective activities. The junior division (entering 4th grade and lower) is scheduled four times weekly. The lake is also utilized for special events such as the big beach bash, boating regatta, and iron man competition. These days are great days to be at camp!


    Lifeguards and instructors are supervised by the lake director, who holds water safety instructor (WSI) certification from the American Red Cross (ARC) and has experience organizing watercraft lessons, managing staff, and maintaining lake facilities. All lake staff hold ARC certification or equivalent in water safety instruction, lifeguarding, and/or watercraft, as well as first-aid and CPR. Each staff member is trained, evaluated, and qualified by the lake director in emergency and rescue procedures.


    Rafting trips take place on the scenic Delaware River in northern Wayne County. These trips are really exciting and the natural surroundings are beautiful. The Delaware River is only 45 minutes from camp. To be eligible to participate, you must pass Cayuga’s deep water swim test and boating test to prove you’re a good swimmer and know how to properly paddle a raft. The trip director will review the river safety rules and trip procedures prior to departing camp. To attend this trip, simply tell your division director or sign-up during the elective sign-up period in the morning. Advance registration is not necessary. Rafting trips are not included in the tuition. We schedule a minimum of one trip every two weeks. For trip dates, go to Calendar of Events.


      Cayuga’s lake program meets the standards and follows the guidelines set forth by the American Red Cross (ARC), as well as the American Camping Association (ACA). Campers are required to take a swim test at the pool before participating in the lake activities. Approval for solo operation of a watercraft is determined by the camper’s ability to swim and safely operate the watercraft. Campers and staff are oriented to the lake rules, and must wear life jackets (PFDs) when in the water or using a watercraft.
