Review for Surprise Lake Camp, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars

Being part of this organization shaped me into the person I am today. I learned to be an independent person at SLC. In addition, I have a love of Judaism

I would not make any changes. SLC has been around since 1902. They change with the times, and continue to stick to their core values and mission statement. What other camp do you know that has been around over 100 years?
