Camp Whitman


“Experience Camp Whitman… where relationships are nurtured and acceptance is practiced!”

Camp Whitman on Seneca Lake is owned and operated by the Presbytery of Geneva, and operated in partnership with the Presbytery of Genesee Valley.   

The Camp Whitman summer camp experience specializes in providing a traditional overnight summer camp experience focused on exploring the outdoors, developing friendships and growing in our connection to Jesus Christ.

During our week-long camp programs campers make new friends, experience living in the outdoors, gain independence, and explore their faith in a warm, caring Christian community.  We meet each camper wherever they are in their personal faith journey, and provide a fun, safe place to learn about themselves and one another. 

Camp Whitman strives to include people with diverse interests, backgrounds, and abilities in all of our programs. Acceptance and participation in the program are the same for everyone. Individuals of all faiths, races, sexual orientations, creeds, genders or gender identities are welcome and encouraged to attend. 

The Camp Whitman property is also available for retreats, meetings and weddings.  We encourage you to find out more at:

Dear Youth Leaders,

Camp Whitman is excited to share with you the two new 2017 programs Confirmation Camp (led by Rev. Colin Pritchard) and Mission Trip Base Camp.

Please see below for more information regarding each program and attached for flyers for each program and the application form.  We are ready to accept applications for both programs now.

Confirmation Camp (July 23-28)

Ages 12-16

$250/youth, includes materials and any field trips from camp.

Confirmation in one week!  This week will be filled with daily opportunities to grow in knowledge and faith as together we explore the basics of discipleship and membership in the Presbyterian (USA) church.  Each day will feature a different focus (Bible, Mission, Worship, Faith Sharing, Stewardship).  The primary leadership for the week will come from Rev. Colin Pritchard and Matt Brooks from the First Presbyterian Church in Victor, but many days will also feature guest ministry leaders from around Upstate NY.  Our free time and meals will be shared with the Camp Whitman community.  At the end of the week, each young person will have the opportunity to discuss with their home church leadership if they would like to be confirmed as a full member of their PCUSA church.

Note: This should be a great experience as well as an intensive one.  This week will be different from other camp offerings and is intended specifically for youth seriously pursuing an exploration of the Christian faith and their membership in the Presbyterian church.

Mission Trip Base Camp (August 6-11)

Ages 12-18, + Adult Chaperones

$175/youth and FREE for adult chaperones

A NEW program especially for Youth Groups.  Each day youth and chaperones will volunteer at an area work site (projects may include painting, cleaning, gardening, etc.) and return to camp each afternoon for swimming, games, dinner and campfire worship time.  All meals are included.  Groups must provide their own chaperones (minimum 1 chaperone per 8 youth is required) and transportation/insurance.
