We could not imagine a more picturesque location for us to get married. Everything from the views of the lake and the dining hall to the activities and staff working the event, made it super special for the both of us and our guests. We highly recommend for those looking for a weekend wedding getaway.
If you’re looking for a venue to host a unique, summer camp style event — look no further! We wanted a rustic camp wedding that could host all of our guests for an entire weekend in a beautiful setting and found that and so much more at Adirondack Camp.
We researched hundreds and visited over 20 summer camps in-person from Pennsylvania to Maine and everywhere in between, but our search ended the minute we drove into camp. Adirondack Camp had everything we wanted: outdoor and indoor options for rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and after party with endless views all in one place for an extended weekend, all to ourselves and our 150 guests.
The natural beauty is truly remarkable, surrounded by crystal clear water and gorgeous mountains, but what really made Adirondack Camp ‘our’ place was the connection we had with the owners, event coordinators and the staff. They made it feel special.
We hosted a weekend complete with adult camper delights: kayaking and paddle boarding, basketball, volleyball and tennis, slip n slides, egg tosses, glow n the dark frisbee and more! We had a camp fire each night in a different location for singalongs and s’mores, with more stars above than we’ve ever seen.
We had our rehearsal dinner & cocktail hour on the string-lighted patio, our wedding ceremony on sunset point, reception & other meals in the spacious wood beamed dining hall. We slept in our own honeymoon cottage with private campfire and dock to ourselves (that my bridesmaids used for getting ready), with our immediate family and bridal party their own special indoor cottages, and the remainder of our guests staying in the unique open-air bunks.
The camp staff provided great support in planning & executing our dream wedding weekend. They customized their plans based on our wants and needs both leading up to and during the event. The camp cook staff provided a BBQ for welcome dinner, 2 breakfasts and a lunch - all of which were delicious with plenty of options.
Even 3+ years later, our guests still tell us our wedding was the best weekend ever. Not just best wedding: best weekend. And that is in large part due to hosting it at Adirondack Camp. That says it all :)
Adirondack Camp is a beautiful, fun, and unique setting for any wedding or celebration where you want to bring together loved ones. As a couple, we knew we wanted to celebrate for a FULL weekend with friends and family so having our guests stay in the cabins, enjoy an array of activities, as well as be on-site for the welcome dinner, ceremony, reception, farewell brunch, etc. was the perfect way to host such an event.
Adirondack Camp is situated on a beautiful peninsula on Lake George. It is a beyond gorgeous place for photos, has many spots to catch your breath for a quiet moment with your partner, and is the perfect backdrop for a couple that wants to be surrounded by natural beauty.
To this day, our friends still share that this was one of the most fun wedding weekends they had ever attended. Between the swimming in the lake itself, the activities, the backdrop for a romantic ceremony, and the awesome dance party that is possible in the dining hall, a camp wedding is hard to beat. Picture getting to wake up, walk out of your cabin and getting to see all of your closest friends and family for a full weekend in such a fun space vs. only getting to see people in fleeting moments at your reception. As a bride, I also really valued getting to settle into my cabin, walking to our welcome dinner, and getting ready just a short walk from the ceremony space.
This venue was extra special for us as ADK alumni – we were so proud and happy for our guest to experience what an incredible and absolutely gorgeous place Adirondack is. Still, you don’t need to have gone to camp to enjoy everything a celebration on the Lake has to offer. Cheers!
