A Message From Leni, 12, Camp Foley Camper

Did you enjoy your time at Foley’s Environmental Ed Center? Join us for summer camp!

Since 1924 Camp Foley has been providing summer experiences for kids. Campers and staff from all over the world come together to explore the wilderness, develop friendships and grow their independence.

Unlike our Environmental Education program, that works with school groups, campers in our summer program come on their own and join a cabin of 8-10 other campers and 2-3 staff. They choose from a variety of activities (over 30 choices) including Waterskiing, Sailing, Archery, Paintball and Tennis.
