How are we preparing for summer this week?

We spend all year preparing for summer! This week, we’re receiving applications for L.E.A.D., our Teen Leadership Development Program. It’s not too late to apply! If you are or know a teen looking to develop your leadership skills, fill out the L.E.A.D. Application and return it!


We’re also in the midst of hiring our summer staff! We are looking for people to be counselors (18+), lifeguards (17+ and willing to get certified), and a Waterfront Coordinator (21+). If you or someone you know is looking for the summer job of a lifetime, fill out the Summer Staff Application.

What do campers say about Casowasco?

After every week, we survey our campers to help us make our program the best it can be. Here’s are some highlights of what they had to say last summer:

  • The best part about my week at Casowasco was… “Being with nice people that care about me”
  • The best part of my week at Casowasco was… “Being accepted for who I am”
  • The best part of my week at Casowasco was… “Being closer to God and loved ones who live with Him”
  • Did you learn anything new at camp? “Yes, that God is always with you”
  • Is there something else you would like to share about your week at camp? “I learned new games, ate good food, made friends, went a week without electronics, had peace and quiet and had fun”
  • 95% of campers would recommend Casowasco to their friends
  • The 2023 Campers’ favorite food was Oreo Cream Pie (obviously!)
