Camp Cedarbrook in the Adirondacks is a non-denominational, Christian girls camp located in northern New York. Nestled in the wilderness of the Adirondack Mountains near Lake George, Camp Cedarbrook’s mission is to reach and disciple girls for Jesus Christ. By creating a strong sense of Christ-centered community within a warm and accepting environment, campers thrive as they make lifelong friends, have fun, and grow in faith. For 50 years, this combination of an encouraging bunk experience, inspiring mature staff, and fun skill-building activities in beautiful, natural surroundings has made Camp Cedarbrook a leader in Christian camping.

Our mission is to inspire the next generation of radically empathetic decision-makers. We build a radically empathetic community through humble curiosity, personal responsibility, restorative practices, and unbounded creativity. They say you are the combination of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Most kids, mostly spend time with other kids, mostly like them. At Stomping Ground, we hope to break that paradigm by bringing together a group of campers and staff who are diverse in their backgrounds, talents, and experiences.
