Visitor Policy

For the safety and consideration of our campers-and to comply with our safety policies ensuring the protection of children and staff, we kindly ask that all alums observe the following visitor policies.


For alumni wishing to visit camp during the summer:


Please email to speak with a director to schedule your visit.  This will enable us to review schedules and see if we can welcome you.  The summer is our busiest time of the year so unless you have camper-aged children who would like to tour camp as a prospective family, it would be best to wait for an alumni weekend or scheduled volunteer day.


For alumni wishing to visit camp during the winter:


Visiting the property in the fall or winter months is not encouraged but is possible in certain instances with express prior permission from the directors.  While we all have warm memories of camp property and feel at home there, it’s important to remember that the grounds are rustic and are not maintained in the off-season, and that walking the property does pose certain risks of potentially serious injury.  Moreover, these risks may not always be obvious, especially following periods of extreme weather and during months when the ground is covered with snow or leaves.  Note also that assistance in the event of an injury during an off-season visit may not be readily available.


Please note that the gates to the two camps are locked during the off-season and we have several kind neighbors who report individuals or suspicious activity near camp, so if you do wish to visit it is important that we know about in advance.  


If you do arrange for a visit note that it is at your sole risk and that the Foundation is not responsible for any injury or damage that may occur during your visit.  If permission for a visit is granted you may only walk the property and may not enter buildings or restricted areas like the ropes course.  Note also that swimming, boating, or other use of camp property for access to Augur Lake is not permitted. Email us at well in advance of your desired arrival date. 



For alumni wishing to hike Pinnacle:


Pinnacle is private property owned by the North Country Camps Foundation. We ask alums to email to seek permission to hike it.  We ask visitors to abide by our rules for use which is identified on signage in the parking lot.  This is a day use area only.
