Summer is Coming!

Happy 2017 from your friends at Camp Cherith of Western New York!

We hope that during these winter months you are looking forward to the warm, sunny days of summer and all the great things you can do like spending a week (or sending your kids for a week) at Camp Cherith! We know many of you are probably planning to do so, and we wanted to update you on a few changes that we are making for this summer.


Because of our growing Day Camp program and our commitment to reaching out to our immediate community, we decided to switch things up and offer a full week dedicated just to day camp! In the past, we ran day camp during the first week of resident camp. But in 2016 we had such a large day camp that we want to dedicate more of our staff, resources, and activity time, just to them.

What does this mean for resident camp? We’ve moved to having four weeks (from five weeks) of resident camp, not only to accommodate the growth in day camp, but also to maximize resident camp opportunities. Our goal is to make all of our programs an even better experience for both day campers and overnight campers. As you can see the calendar weeks are similar with the exception of starting resident camp a week later. We will have two girls only weeks, and two parallel camp (boys and girls) weeks. The dates are as follows:
July 3-7 - day camp
July 9-15 - girls only resident camp
July 16-22 - girls only resident camp
July 23 -29 - parallel boys and girls resident camp
July 30-August-5 - parallel boys and girls resident camp
Check out the specials for each week here. You can register NOW to be sure to get the week you'd like!
Another new thing we’d like to announce is that we will be renting our site for a few days in August (after our regularly scheduled camp ends) to Celiac Strong Camp. This camp is devoted to providing a camp experience to campers with Celiac Disease. Their website states “This camp is worry-free place for boys and girls with Celiac or gluten intolerance between 7-16 years old.” Celiac Strong Camp will be happening at Camp Cherith of WNY from August 9th-August 12th. We’re excited to host them!
