A Summer Camp in New York Full of Fun!

Camp Hilltop, established in 1924, is a private/independent co-educational summer camp in offering two to eight week sessions to campers ages six to sixteen. The camp is located in Hancock, New York near the picturesque Catskill Mountains, just two and a half hours from New York City on six hundred acres of beautiful woodlands and fields with a private lake.

Camp Hilltop offers more than sixty indoor and outdoor activities to meet the interests and skill levels of campers in a safe, nurturing, non-competitive and structured environment. These summer activities include waterskiing, wakeboarding, hiking, horses, climbing tower, high ropes, and a variety of sports, performing arts and arts and crafts. Our mature, skilled and caring staff provides superior supervision and instruction with a four to one camper to counselor ratio. Camp Hilltop's friendly, fun, positive and diverse community opens children up to the wondrous possibilities in their lives.

Camp Hilltop's smaller size, with just 250 campers, fosters a sense of community that
sets us apart and creates an atmosphere where children:

  • ENGAGE - having their voice heard,
  • DISCOVER - more about themselves and the world,
  • LEARN - developing skills for life,
  • CONNECT - forming deep friendships and
  • BECOME - more independent
