Deep in the woods of beautiful Harriman State Park, on the shores of Lake Kanawauke (just 40 miles north of NYC), Camp Ma-He-Tu has been the home away from home for generations of girls since 1937!
During each affordable, 2-week overnight session, young women enjoy an exciting mix of traditional summer camp activities with a focus on individual growth, teamwork, and empowerment. Ma-He-Tu girls meet over 100 new friends each summer and form relationships that last a lifetime. As the camp song goes, “Once you’ve come Ma-He-Tu stays within your heart forever!”
Campers also have access to many special activities: Ropes course / Zipline, Volleyball, Yoga, Dance, Hiking, Boating: Canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, Archery, Lake Instructional Swim and more!

All of our encampments (sessions) are fun, of course! But to keep things interesting, each encampment has its own theme! These traditions have been around for decades - we hope you can join us to make some wonderful memories in any or all of the below sessions!

Canoe Regatta: Every summer we compete against other camps at the annual Bear Mtn. Association Canoe Regatta. Whether you paddle or add to the fun by competing in the Camp Spirit award contest, it's a day for fun and excitement. Back at camp, we are rewarded with a great dinner and a party!
