Each mini-camp has its own set of facilities, own time schedule, as well as dedicated staff which allows boys each division to be part of a small and closely knit group yet an integral part of the total camp experience.
More specifically, each Mini-Camp has its own operating philosophy:
Ages 7-10 who have finished up to 4th grade.
Led by Director Andy Berlin, The Junior Camp is comprised of four groups; the Frosh, the Soph A’s, Soph B’s and Juniors. Each group has their own Group Head, Guidance Person, as well as an Athletic Director. All of these men and women are teacher/educators and have been at Brant Lake Camp for years. All groups have a broad range of activities and instruction, many of which are required and competition is limited, carefully thought out and thoroughly supervised. Overall, a more structured and heavily supervised program.
Ages 11-12 who have finished 5th and 6th grade.
The Inter Camp is comprised of two groups; the Inter A’s and B’s. Campers have more choice in their activities, there is increased competitive opportunity and there are more opportunities to participate in Intercamp sports.
Our oldest campers, the seniors, are aged from 12-15. 'Senior camp' is a little different from the rest of Brant Lake while still embodied with the same values and philosophy. Our seniors are the leaders of camp and can chose to specialise in 'majors', one to one instruction in the sport of their choosing. Our seniors also take trips to places such as Boston, Toronto and Montreal and are involved in many 'inter-camp' games and tournaments. Seniors are offered the opportunity to tryout for our camp varsity teams as well as being able to access local golf courses.
The best instruction around
At Brant Lake all of our instructional periods are lead by one of our 'key staff' members- usually a high school coach. The counselors, who often have extensive playing experience, are used to assist and demonstrate. Furthermore, we make sure our instructors and coaches have experience and the ability to teach within the age group they are assigned. We utilize the most up-to-date, age-appropriate and proven practice plans and drills to insure the best outcome possible. Several pre-camp “training” periods for our coaches are a part of our orientation week to familiarize all new coaches with our approach and philosophy.
All of our younger campers are exposed to and involved in all of the sports and activities that Brant Lake has to offer with more specialized instructional periods available as campers move through the camp system. For example our seniors can opt to participate in 'majors' in one or many of our 5 key sports- a small group session of 1 hour with maximum 3 campers per coach.
Catered to Ability
The rolling Adirondack hills set beside beautiful Brant Lake provide the back drop for BLC with some of the best facilities of any camp in the United States including….
Fully Lit Turf Field
Perfect for daytime soccer, night time lacrosse and small sided games and coaching Brant Lake's 3G artificial turf provides an excellent place to play.
Budding Tar Heel or a quick game of H-O-R-S-E before dinner, we've got you covered. BLC is home to 9 Basketball courts that range in size according to age including our indoor arena and dunk-ball court . There's nothin' quite like a game of hoops under the lights at BLC.
BLC is home to 15 Tennis courts including 12 clay and 3 hard courts, 3 of which are floodlit. 6 of our Courts are set up for USTA youth play- 2 special smaller for 8U and 4 for 10U players
Six miles long and in the heart of the Adirondacks Brant Lake is perfect for cooling off in those hot summer months. With Skiing, sailing, swimming, fishing and boating we've got you covered 'down at the lake'!
Our fully lit chipping and putting holes are perfect for perfecting that short game. Further up the hill our 2 hole course and driving range enable our campers to work on that swing.
Sharp shooter? Head to our archery range and see if you can hit a bulls-eye by the end of the summer!
