Located on the shores of beautiful Lake Beaver Pond, in Northern New York, our Summer Camp provides Hittys and their friends with a week-long adventure into the 'wilds'. Games, activities, food cooked outdoors, canoe trips, picnics and much, much more await! This has always been a 'family' camp week, but this year we will be taking along guests, in addition to the entire Ash Grove Academy and staff, and girls from the Cole, Atkinson, McBath, Faubert, and DeGroat tribe. Wouldn't your Hitty and/or her friends like to spend a week with us? There is no fee or tuition, since Great-Aunt Teddie says she can certainly feed and entertain any extra girls who wish to attend as cheaply as she can our entire clan!

Any Girls wishing to remain after camp as a Special Term Student must indicate that on her application.

Activities Applications Age Requirements Supply List


Sign-ups will be required, as tent-space is limited. Please use the e-mail link to contact Charlotte Hitty, our Camp Director, with any questions.




Hittys and any of their friends must be between the ages of 7 and 15 to attend camp. Adult Hittys are welcome also. No children under the age of 7 will be allowed to attend at this time, as the campers will be sleeping in tents under the stars.

Don't worry too much about the supply list. If your Hitty forgets any items, we have plenty to spare. All possessions should be marked with a name. (Don't worry, we always make a backup list of what comes with every girl so her belongings can go back with her, in case she 'forgets' to add her name!)
