New facilities for 2019 | Brant Lake Camp
Though the winter at Brant Lake, New York came early and was quite harsh, we hope to be able to open our new 120 yards by 80-yard lacrosse/flag football/soccer field on August 1, 2019. With the increased interest/growth in flag football and lacrosse, we at Brant Lake Camp felt we needed another full-size field in addition to our present full-size field and our turf practice field. We are excited for the completion of our new field and look forward to this impressive addition to our already existing four baseball fields, fourteen tennis courts, and eleven basketball courts. We look forward to playing flag football leagues, lacrosse tournaments, and major soccer matches on Brant Lake Camp’s newest addition.
The new field at Brant Lake will be similar in dimensions to MetLife Stadium
Volleyball at Brant Lake Camp over recent years has become a major activity in our Senior Camp, as well as being one of the core sports in our Brant Lake Sports Academy for girls. With this increased interest we will be opening our new volleyball facility this summer 2019. We will have two new beautiful court areas lighted for both day and night play. This will be another exciting addition to our facilities at BLC and will be of great benefit to our Senior Camp. With the easily adjustable net heights we plan for its use by our younger campers as well.
We have also decided to move our archery range to a new area behind our soccer field. Just recently land has been cleared to accommodate this new area. Nestled in the Brant Lake woods our young William Tells will be able to enjoy this always popular hobby at BLC.
Volleyball has continued to rise in popularity here at Brant Lake
Last summer at Brant Lake Camp we were proud to unveil our newly refurbished Junior Clubhouse, the site of countless outstanding shows and spirited Song Contests. The changes afforded all audiences a most comfortable and clear view of our stage. This summer we plan on the grand opening of the Libbie Gersten Memorabilia room. Libbie for so many years was the keeper and driving force behind all of Brant Lake Camp’s treasures. Now with the completion of this room in her honor, all of Brant Lake Camp’s storied past will be on display for all to see and experience. With the multiple touchscreen monitors, present day and past Brant Lakers will be easily able to access photos of themselves as well as their old buddies and other remembrances.
At Brant Lake Camp we are very proud of our rich history, but we are also committed to improving and adding facilities every summer. This will ensure that we can provide wonderful experiemnces for our campers in our second century.
