There are many outstanding overnight camps…. Scatico resonates with families looking for a values-based, traditional camp experience; a not-too-large camper population (130 boys and 130 girls); directors very involved in the day-to-day life of campers and staff; and a structured daily schedule that is group-oriented yet also provides opportunities for individual choice. They are also looking for a lot of camp spirit, for their children to have fun, learn new things, and form lifelong friendships and memories
Scatico's Distinguishing Features
Stability and continuity
Owned for three generations by the Fleischner/Holman Family since opening in 1921
A true brother-sister camp
Separate facilities, campuses, dining rooms, waterfronts…. on a single property. During the day, it feels like two single-sex camps, but with the distinct advantage that campers do not have to travel off-site for coed activities and full-camp special events. The main campuses are approximately ½ mile apart.
Campers wear plain white t-shirts and green shorts daily (no logo needed). The uniform is simple and supports our goal of minimizing social pressures.
High camper and staff return rates
Ninety percent or more of our campers and nearly three-quarters of our staff return each summer.
High staff-to-camper ratios
The ratio of staff living in cabins to campers is less than 1-to-4. Add in Leadership Staff and program heads not living with campers and the ratio is less than 1-to-3.
