because camp is for everyone

where families can just be families

a place of belonging and hope


Life hardly ever feels “normal” when you have a child struggling with an emotional, behavioral, or mental challenge. It’s often lonely and discouraging. That’s why Camp Get-A-Way comes alongside families to create a safe camp experience where families can just be families.


Be a camper.

Camp Get-A-Way is a place where you and your kids can play, connect, create, and bond in the great outdoors. Try new things like archery, swimming, fishing, and canoeing as a family. Share laughter and s’mores by the campfire. Create memories over tie-dye fun, camp crafts, and games. Find hope through the family resources and training. And start lasting friendships with other New York families facing similar challenges.

change a family’s story.

The Camp Get-A-Way experience transforms lives because it’s more than just camp. It’s an experience that changes the very trajectory of the lives of children and families who deal with an emotional, behavioral, or mental illness on a daily basis. Will you change a family’s story forever?

Through Camp Get-A-Way, we gained a sense of family. Being at Camp Get-A-Way helps my children realize they aren’t alone and allows them to just be kids.
