Independent Lake Camp is a co-ed, overnight summer camp located on a beautiful lake in the Pocono Mountains. ILC offers an endless combination of session lengths, ranging from 1 to 9 weeks. Our camp is available to and attending by boys and girls, ages 6 to 18, from all over the world.

Established 27 years ago as a non-traditional summer camp, the original vision for ILC has created one of the best sleep-away summer camps around. We have evolved into a special, positive community that provides campers with the confidence to advance their existing talents, or even take a risk and try something new! This ILC vision was, and still is dedicated to:

Celebrating diversity of people, activities, places, ideas, views & beliefs,
Promoting creativity within each camper and throughout the entire community,

Empowering individual growth with our elective, personalized scheduling,
Providing a wide-range of activities for all skill levels that are rich with integrity by maintaining top-notch facilities & equipment and employing a talented, hand-selected staff from all over the world.

ILC prides itself on the unique approach we take about the campers’ schedules - based mainly on individualized programming. Each camper can choose what they want to do from a wide variety of activities offered by multiple departments. Each ILC department is managed by an experienced, talented, veteran ILC staff member. Therefore, ILC is more than just a fantastic summer camp, it is a fantastic Circus & Flying Trapeze, Sports, Tennis, Dance & Performing Arts, Magic, Skateboarding, Rollerblading & BMX, Digital Arts, RPG, LARPing, & Rocketry, Fine Arts, Music, Electronic Music & Music Recording, Climbing Wall, Zip-Line, & Adventure Ropes Course, Waterskiing, Wakeboarding, Tubing, & Banana Boating, Sailing, Kayaking & Paddleboating, Lake & Pool Swimming & Water Games, Organic Farming, and Horseback Riding Camp all rolled into one!
