Senior Program

Love the camp experience but want more adventure? Mohawk’s Senior Trips program might be perfect for you. For new and returning campers ages 14 to 15, join the Day Trips or Cape Cod Trip Senior Camp. The perfect combination of our traditional camp program and off-camp adventure.

Seniors who wish to participate in horseback riding lessons may do so for one week only as seniors are away for the second week. There is an additional fee of $190 for adding one week of riding.

We suggest a store deposit of $125 for Day Trip Seniors. This will take care of money for a night out to movies and amusement park trip. We suggest a store deposit of $150 for Cape Cod Seniors. This will take care of money for a night out to the movies and additional expenses at the Cape. All expenses for food and admission are covered; store deposit money can be used to purchase anything extra. Your daughter can withdraw money from her store account before departing camp.

Cape Cod participants should pack a small duffel bag when they pack for camp. Before departing for the Cape, you will pack what you need in the duffel for the trip. Towels, sheets, pillows and blankets are provided by the hostel, so those will stay at camp when you depart.

Only 14 Seniors are accepted into each senior session.
