  • Up next in our Summer Camp Series- Camp Riverdale! Camp Riverdale was a summer camp for boys aged nine to eighteen, founded in 1912 by Dr. Frank S. Hackett. It was located on the northern shores of Long Lake and included 350 acres of woodland and the camp buildings. The camp no longer operates today – its buildings were torn down in the 1970s after the land was sold to the State of New York – but we have a large collection of materials from its heyday in the first half of the 20th century.
  • “Fire towers enabled our forebears to literally see the forest through the trees, moving them to comprehend its vast scale, understand its importance, and dedicate themselves to its preservation.“
– Wesley H. Haynes Views From On High

This Saturday, 7/14, #theADKX will host Firetower Fever - a new event celebrating Adirondack and Catskill fire towers and the people who restore and maintain them.

  • Many lifelong lovers of the Adirondacks have their first experiences here as children at sleepaway summer camps. Our library has a large collection of yearbooks, brochures, and memorabilia from these idyllic getaways, which we will be sharing weekly over the summer season. Do you have your own memories of summer camp in the Adirondacks? We’d love to hear about them!

Moss Lake Camp:
Moss Lake Camp was an all-girls camp near Big Moose Lake. Started in 1923, the camp placed an emphasis on athletics, and campers learned archery, horseback riding, fencing, riflery, and even classical ballet.
