Camp whitman


Welcome to Camp Whitman!

Located on the west side of Seneca Lake between Geneva and Watkins Glen, right off of Route 14, this beautiful 117 acre property features private lake frontage, woods, ravines, meadows, a pond, and playing fields.  The facilities are simple and rustic.

Empower Camp will be renting this stunning premier lakefront property for our 2020 summer camp program. 



Campers will be housed in simple cabins with solar powered electricity. Each cabin sleeps four people. Cabins will be grouped and each group will have two counselors and approximately eight gals. Cabins will be assigned based on age. 

Part of cabin life is cabin spirit! Each cabin group will be assigned a team name, team color and a part of the Empower Camp Chant! Historically, our campers have built deep relationships with their cabin groups throughout the experience, essentially becoming family! 

Campers will have access to a shared bathhouse.



Overlooking Seneca Lake, we will eat together in the Dining Hall where delicious food is aplenty. Nutritious and delicious - each main course will leave your belly full and happy.

Our cooking staff does an incredible job of providing options to meet the dietary preferences and needs of each camper. With a rating of 5 out of 5 stars on our camp surveys over the last two years, the food at Empower Camp has become an infamous part of camp! As one of our campers stated, "I love trying the delicious foods that was made for us!"

You will never go hungry at Empower Camp with mid-day snack deliveries, PB & J sandwiches available at every meal and as many second helpings as your heart desires.

Hydration will be top of mind and will be served with every snack, meal and available throughout each day. (H2O is the way to go!)
