Camp Abnaki offers groups the opportunity to get away from the city or office and hold their conference, training, retreat, family reunion, or special event on beautiful Lake Champlain.

Your group can enjoy many options in programming such as waterfront activities, biking, and our climbing wall. You can also choose to cook your own food in our modern dining hall facility or have our staff prepare delicious meals for you.  Our cabins can house groups of up to 200 people.

Camp Abnaki is taking reservations for groups during its off season (spring and autumn). Your group can relax, work or play at Camp Abnaki. Please contact the camp office to find out more information and to reserve your group today.

"We chose Camp Abnaki for our Burton Marketing Department retreat and couldn't have been happier.  At Burton, we're used to working hard playing hard, and Camp Abnaki was perfect for this.  The staff really worked with us to create activities that helped our group bond and focus on our marketing goals for the year.  From late night camp fires and group discussion sessions to archery competitions, kickball tournaments and canoe outings, our retreat at Abnaki helped our group work together and get to know each other on a whole new level.  We definitely hope to come back to Camp Abnaki - the food, the setting, and especially the staff were all incredible."

"Few of my children had ever been away from home, only a handful had ever been camping, and the opportunity to show them this part of the world while being outside, near the lake, surrounded by nature was too good to pass up.  After the first hour, I was convinced it was more than worth the effort.  I saw my students running around on open green fields, exploring the lake, exclaiming over everything they saw.  They transformed from children burdened by life into carefree, spirited souls ready to explore.  There were so many firsts on this trip that I could describe to you...first time at a campfire, first time in a canoe, first time shooting a bow and arrow, first time seeing the darkness of an evening without street lights.  It was magic.  My students saw another world, and they were in love.  They wanted more."
