Camp Gregory 2015

On July 5, 2015 as the sun lights the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake, Camp Gregory will celebrate 75 years of providing outdoor experiences for the area’s children.  Camp Gregory is a small rustic camp built on an idyllic camp setting with forest, lake shore, gorges, hiking trails, sports fields and campfire pits.  The main lodge and sleeping cabins provide the indoor shelter for eating, sleeping, activities, quiet time and time for the campers to turn strangers into friends.  The well-trained staff prepares a dynamic and energetic program including nature study, athletics, team building, evening game shows, social skills building, crafts, music and many other fun activities.  The waterfront provides opportunities for swimming, boating, aquatic habitat study, campfires or just enjoying the view of Cayuga Lake.


The camp began in 1941 by Caspar Gregory.  His vision became the Camp’s Mission, which is to offer opportunities for campers to live and work together in nature to experience the physical, emotional and environmental dimensions of life.  The Resident Camp and the Day Camp stimulate campers to develop new skills in working together, in protecting the environment and in enjoying the outdoors.  The fun-filled and educational week create camaraderie among staff and campers, creating relationships that last a lifetime.
The camp is located just south of the Village of Aurora near Long Point State Park.  It is open for interested groups for rentals.  For more information, see the website at www.campgregory.org.  The Camp looks forward to the next 75 years of creating fun-filled education for our youth.

We are looking for counselors and other staff for this summer.  If you are interested in a fun-filled and rewarding summer job, go to our website.

Church organizations are invited to use the facilities and property during the summer months for services and other gatherings.  Campers leave Friday evening and return Sunday afternoon leaving most of the weekend free for Church services.  Check us out at our website.  Rental is free for Church groups.
