Girls Quest empowers girls to be strong, productive and caring contributors to their communities. We have been doing this for over 80 years by blending outdoor experiential learning, creativity, and literacy under the guidance of positive role models.

Located less than three hours from New York City, Girls Quest’s camp, Camp Oh-Neh-Tah is situated on more than 400 acres of pristine woodlands on the north end of the glorious Catskill Mountains. Campers explore the site which includes Mt. Zoar, Silver Lake, nature trails, a beaver pond and an abundance of wildlife.

Camp Oh-Neh-Tah provides girls ages 8-14 an outdoor and educational experience which also incorporates all the traditional activities defined as “camp”, such as camp fires, cookouts and an overnight experience under the Milky Way!

During their stay with us girls experience:

· Daily reading and creative writing activities

· Supervised swimming and boating on our own Silver Lake

· Hiking and exploring on site and in the adjacent New York State Forest

· Athletic activities like volleyball and soccer that help improve coordination and motor skills

· Living with positive role models in a respectful camp community

· Exposure to the environment allowing them to appreciate the joys of nature

Camp is a place where a young girl can make new friends, be part of a community, gain a feeling of independence and most importantly have fun! From the time they wake up in the morning, until the time they go to bed, campers are exploring their surroundings and engaging in hands-on activities and developing self-esteem and self-awareness that will impact and shape their lives for years to come.
