Chingachgook sits on the quiet east shore of Lake George in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. The 200 acres of YMCA property is surrounded by thousands of acres of forever wild state forest preserve with a trail network of over 50 miles through wetlands, along the lake shore, through woodlands, and over mountain summits.
The YMCA has recently invested over $3 million for facility improvements resulting in over 60 buildings, including a new dining hall, program lodge, hike center, water-based pavilion, and 20 cabins.
A wide variety of water-based activities takes place on Chingachgook's extensive water-based, which features two 80-foot docks and a fleet of 75 canoes, kayaks, rowboats, sailboats, sailboards, and motor boats. In the winter, the frozen lake opens a winter wonderland of fun from ice skating to ice fishing and cross-country skiing.
Other recreational facilities include tennis courts, basketball courts, climbing tower, bouldering wall, archery and rifle ranges, volleyball courts, and playing fields for softball, soccer, and other games.
