Our campus, established in 1909 as Camp Tekakwitha, includes 20 wooded acres, including student cabins, faculty housing and performance, practice, dining, administrative and recreational facilities, along with a sandy beachfront on Lake Luzerne.


While we have done our best to maintain our campus, our century-old cabins can no longer be repaired and severely limit our ability to provide our students and faculty a living environment that parallels the superb quality of our music program.

Our 2020 Campaign seeks
to raise funds to transform the campus' infrastructure, purchasing new cabins for students and faculty, creating a village for each. The new cabins, built by Lancaster Log Cabins, and come fully equipped with all plumbing, furnishings and air conditioning. This will provide a safer, cleaner, more environmentally friendly and more comfortable living space for students, counselors and faculty during their four- to eight-week stays. The new faculty village will also allow us to save more than $30,000 a summer by eliminating the need to house faculty off site.

A portion of the 2020 Campaign includes installation of 12 new student cabins. With capacity for eight students, each cabin includes four bunkbeds and a bathroom, two showers and a double vanity, as well as a private bedroom and bathroom for a counselor.

Cost: $70,000 per cabin

The purchase of a full cabin includes a plaque in honor of someone
or with the donor's family name.


We will also be replacing existing faculty housing with 18 new faculty cabins. Each faculty cabin will accommodate two faculty members, with two bedrooms, a kitchenette and a bathroom.

Cost: $50,000 per cabin

The purchase of a full cabin includes a plaque in honor of someone
or with the donor's family name.

Significant upgrades to campus infrastructure will also be made to modernize water, septic and electrical systems, in accordance with the Adirondack Park Agency.

Cost: $975,000

All gifts of $1,000 or more will be included on a special donor wall
outside of the Performance Lodge.


The final phase of the 2020 Campaign includes construction of a new practice facility that will house more than 20 individual spaces; a teaching building with more than 15 studios for the 25 teachers in residence to offer private lessons daily; and an administrative building that will house a welcome center and medical facilities.
