Camp Ma-He-Tu activities can be enjoyed by all. Each day, our campers participate in any number of the
featured activities we offer (and more) to try new things and gain new skills.
A new schedule is written every day to suit the needs of the campers. Since schedules are written daily, campers have an opportunity to make suggestions for their next day’s schedule. If, for instance, an age group is in the midst of a fun and competitive basketball game, they may ask to play again the following day. Find a particular activity you love?

We believe creativity is a skill which can be learned. Our program offers every camper the chance to express herself in many artistic ways.
You can take on a lead role in a show, wow the whole camp on your guitar during Rock the Mic Night, or learn some new, exciting crafts and techniques. We hope you take home more than just some great projects - like the confidence to express yourself.
Arts & Crafts
At Ma-He-Tu, you’ll be immersed in the sense of adventure that defines our camp experience. In breathtaking Harriman State Park, the great outdoors is our classroom, where campers connect with the natural world and each other.
Adventure can also be as simple as trying something new or doing something that is out of your comfort zone.
Sometimes, there is no greater feeling than making a basket, scoring a goal, or crossing the finish line. At Ma-He-Tu, every girl has the opportunity to feel the special type of excitement that only athletics can offer.
The lake is the coolest place to be on a hot summer afternoon! Every day, our campers participate in instructional swim and small craft. Campers work through the American Red Cross Learn to Swim curriculum with a dedicated lifeguard to improve your swimming, diving, and water-safety skills. Once you pass Level 6, you move on to instructional Small Craft class where you hone your skills in canoeing, kayaking, and rowing.
Every afternoon, you can also participate in General Swim where you can simply have fun! Use the diving board, take out a boat, or just float on a noodle and relax!
* - Some aquatic activities are limited to deep-water swimmers only. Lifeguard training is limited only to campers who are 15 years of age and have passed all swim levels.
Special event days are typically half or full-day events that include activities, costumes, games, and more! Hike Day, Olympics Day, Dr. Seuss on the Loose!, Candyland, Harry Potter World, Gold Rush, and Trolls are just a few examples of the creative programming you would expect to see on a special day!
