Young Life and Saranac Village maintain the highest level of safety and standards in operation of all of our activities at camp.

All of Saranac Village's elements are operated and supervised by our staff who have been fully trained and certified to do so, ensuring your child's comfort and safety.

Saranac Village's waterfront program is also facilitated by trained and experienced staff. Your child will be in good hands while at Saranac Village.

In the event of an unexpected accident, there is always a qualified medical professional on call to tend to your child's needs. Also, if needed, the local hospital is only a short drive away.

Current Procedures


We welcome kids of all abilities to our camps. ​ At Saranac, all of our main buildings are accessible to strollers or wheelchairs, and we have a handful of cabins that are designed to be accessible (special housing needs may be requested by your child's trip leader).

Walkways around upper camp are paved. We will also do our best to help every guest participate in activities. We want every kid to have the best week of their life as they come to camp!


Stay in one of our dorms filled with bunk beds and get ready for incredible food to be served in the dining hall.

Grab a milkshake or Saranac soda at the Lean-To, play ping pong in the game room and get excited for club in The Summit!
