Camp Regis Applejack

Camp Regis Applejack logo

Camp Regis Applejack is a family-owned and operated co-ed, overnight and day camp in upstate New York. Founded in 1946 on the Quaker beliefs of community, acceptance, and respect of nature, Camp Regis Applejack gives children an education that lasts a lifetime.

We are located on nearly a mile of lakefront property which allows for various waterfront activities, while our location in the Adirondack National Park allows for some amazing wilderness trips. Our campers enjoy a variety of activities from our six main departments: Arts & Crafts, Athletics, Birch Lodge, Nature, Performing Arts, and Waterfront.

Campers follow a set daily schedule, with the exception of special programs, that have them participating in at least four different activities throughout a single day.

We also encourage our campers to learn as much as possible, whether it be learning a new skill, or, a less apparent, development of a soft skill such as teamwork. We are a non-competitive camp and prefer to participate in friendly matches that strengthen our camper’s proficiency.

On top of our various on-property activities campers also enjoy overnight camping trips in the Adirondack National Park, trips to the local county fair, and multiple trips to the region’s favorite homemade ice cream parlor Donnelly’s.

We are also excited to announce that as of 2020 we are adding new immersive programs in ecology, sustainability, and conservation. Our aim is to show our campers how they can help sustain and give back to the earth through fun and manageable tasks.

Camp Regis Applejack was founded by Earl and Pauline Humes after WWII, the Humes’ aimed to create a summer camp for everyone regardless of their race, ethnicity, or religion. The most notable story from the first summer of Camp Regis Applejack was an Austrian duchess sharing a bunk with a concentration camp survivor who had nothing to her name.

We continue this philosophy of acceptance and integration for everyone no matter their background. The Humes’ son, Michael Humes, is the current CEO of Camp Regis Applejack with alumnus Will Bettmann as the Director and Mr. Humes’ daughter Emily Yancey as the Associate Director.

Camp Regis Applejack is celebrating it’s 75th Anniversary this upcoming summer.

Our continued success in achieving our goals is due to a number of factors.

  • Our incredibly positive and nurturing peer culture.
  • Our program of positive risk-taking that encompasses a high level of skill development in three key areas (sports, waterfront, and outdoor adventure).
  • Our emphasis on both structure and choice relative to activity classes, trips, and competition.
  • Our extraordinary attention to the individual needs of each boy.

Combine all of this with an enthusiastic and diverse group of 140 campers (from 18 states and 7 countries), an experienced and caring staff, and an incredible campus (100 acres of fields and forest and a secluded mile-long lake in the White Mountains of New Hampshire), and you have all the makings for an amazing summer.
