Wonderful Retreat Center Facilities in the Capital Region
Here at the Camp Schodack / Berkshire Retreat Center we have been helping to create amazing summers since 1957. In that time we have learned a thing or two about what it takes to create great memories and experiences. Many of the groups that come us to choose us because of the flexibility of our offer, allowing you to create your own DIY package and take advantage of our wonderful facility that consists of 100 acres of privately owned land. Guests can choose to spend an action packed weekend making full use of all of our regular summer camp activities or instead, kick back and relax by the pool between meetings and team building sessions.

Long History of Excellence
The land that Camp Schodack sits on has been under the same continuous family ownership for 4 generations. When the Camp opened in 1957 it set out to take advantage of the long, hot New York summers that begin in early May and run through until Later September. Even in the cooler evenings through the fall beauty of New York State shines through and nothing beats sitting round a camp fire under the canopy of stars that shine here like few other places. Our leadership team all have years of experience in creating, planning and executing high quality events both here in the US and overseas.
