This Adirondack Great Camp was acquired by Young Life in 1969 and although it is now used by hundreds of high school campers and staff each week rather than just one family, the distinctiveness and unique architectural features have been preserved and the property remains today a "must see" for historical and architectural tours. 

In the early part of the 1900s, Adolph Lewisohn, a very wealthy investor from New York City, set out to build a summer retreat for his family. He chose a site on a peninsula on Upper Saranac Lake in the Adirondack Mountains. On the site, he had constructed an Adirondack Great Camp. This Great Camp was comprised of numerous spectacular buildings, many of which are connected with covered walkways. Used to only the most luxurious of surroundings, Lewisohn spent $2.5 million in 1904 to build his retreat.
