Waterfront

Through Four Generations and over 100 years of private ownership, Brant Lake Camp has always taken pride in being a place - "Where Sports Are Done Right"

Brant Lake Camp enjoys its own beautiful waterfront situated directly on Brant Lake, a six and a half mile crystal clear lake. Our 1200 feet of sandy beach shoreline is in a sheltered cove just perfect for all kinds of activites with our many great waterfront facilities.

Our waterfront is supervised by a Waterfront Director whose sole responsibility is the safe operation of all water activities that are run at the lake as well as the leadership of our full time Red Cross Certified lifeguard staff plus counselors who supplement our guarding. The Waterfront Director primarily manages activity from the lifeguard tower and is the vigilant supervisor of the numerous “buddy checks” that are run every swim period.

Supporting our Waterfront Director are our specialty heads for swim instruction, waterskiing and small crafts.

As noted elsewhere, our program is structured to ensure that all our Junior Campers get to the lake at least twice a day, weather permitting, for swim instruction as well as for a general, “fun” swim. All other groups are also provided the opportunity to get to the lake twice a day but there is more choice involved. When it’s extra hot, swim periods are often extended and early evening waterfront periods are also offered.

Other fun activities at the lake include:

  • fishing
  • long mileage swims, based on swimming a number of laps to a “destination”
  • water basketball
  • snorkeling
  • inner tubing and other large water toys, e.g. trampoline and water slide
  • sand castle building
  • volleyball and other beach games
  • deck games
  • barbeques and campfires
