Camp Hilltop Overview

When you take a careful look at who comes to Camp Hilltop, you'll see the faces of some pretty terrific kids! These are the kinds of people who could really make next summer the best summer of your life.

Speaking of great people, be sure to check out our staff. These are fun-loving and caring individuals who know how to make our activities, special events, and every moment of every day at camp comfortable and memorable from the very first day.

Our activities list seems endless — and it grows longer every year! We feature Sports, Outdoor Adventure, Horses, Waterfront and Arts and Enrichment activities.

We encourage choice and change on a regular basis. Our Daily Program exposes campers to a multitude of opportunities. Campers can explore activities with great gusto, develop impressive new skills, feel group spirit and togetherness, keep the pace or relax and deepen new friendships. All in all, it's a "camper-friendly" way to keep busy. We do all this in a camp sized for success. We believe that a camp should be just big enough to surround campers with great opportunity for building new friendships, but not so big that any camper feels lost or overwhelmed.

The fun starts in our cabins, which dot our beautiful hillside. The good times continue at our other facilities, such as on our thirty-acre lake, in our pool, on our athletic fields, in the gym, on the go-kart track, on tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, on our own high and low element challenge course, and in every corner of this truly fun-filled place. It's no wonder it's called "a Mountain of Fun."

We pay special attention to the health and safety of each camper. Every activity starts with safe equipment, sensible rules, and excellent supervision. In addition, we have a licensed nurse on-site at all times, and local physicians on call at a hospital near camp. In the event of illness or injury, parents will hear from us promptly. We give all our campers the option to attend weekly religious services in nearby communities, and we provide the supervised transportation.

Evenings are filled with activity - casino nights, Dutch auctions, campfires, talent shows, dances, international events, scavenger hunts and much more! The fun spills right over into fun-filled Special Events - Western Day, Gold Rush, Medieval Day, Olympics, barbecues, and carnivals are just a few.

When all this still isn't enough, we move the “Mountain of Fun” out into the world! Our program of day and overnight trips includes every camper. Some go on hiking, biking, horseback overnights or canoe trips down the Delaware River. For sports fans, we provide optional trips to The Binghamton Mets. Campers entering seventh grade and above can take optional trips to some of the Northeast’s great amusement parks.
