IN THE HEART OF THE ADIRONDACKS
For schools, adults, youth, and families
WHAT WE DO
An extension of North Country School and Camp Treetops, Rock-E House & Basecamp offers programs that focus on sustainability through the arts, agriculture, environmental science, and outdoor pursuits.
Rock-E House & Basecamp is ideal for private and public schoolchildren, college students, educators, outdoor enthusiasts, and families. Guests are welcome to enroll in one of our programs or groups (up to 24) can design their own stay.
Facilities and features include a 9-bedroom, 4.5-bath historic farmhouse, well-equipped kitchen, five acres of vegetable and flower gardens, a maple sugaring operation, a 25-trail ski hill, a 36-route rock climbing crag, and 4 miles of horseback and mixed-use hiking trails. There is walk out access to Cascade and Pitchoff Mountains, and ski out access to Mt. Van Hoevenberg Cross Country and Biathlon Center.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Rock-E House & Basecamp is both a place and an idea. Learning communities around the world are trying to break free from industrial models of education, agriculture, and lifestyle. Around the region and on a national scale, we are seeing a surge in land-based programs that connect people to one another and to their food.
Situated in the heart of one of the country’s most wild places – the High Peaks Region of the six million acre Adirondack Park – and drawing from nearly a century of progressive educational practices, Rock-E House & Basecamp embodies the trail forward.
Participants in our learning retreats experience stewardship first hand, cultivate an environmental literacy that bridges thought and deed, and practice new core values that endure when they return home.
