The camp is also rented out to individuals, families, and groups to host camping, special events and celebrations of all kinds.
Our Mission & Vision
At Camp Earth Connection we provide a safe space for all individuals, children and families. We design our programs to be inclusive and anti-biased and provide a diverse staff to meet the needs of a diverse community in an alcohol and drug free environment. We create communities that embrace and respect diversity.
Camp Earth Connection provides inspirational outdoor experiences which result in a greater appreciation for nature and a passion for learning more about the environment. Camp Earth Connection is all about connection with each other and the Earth, and together this makes community.
Camp Earth Connection is nestled in the beautiful Hammond Hill State Forest in the town of Dryden, 12 miles East of Ithaca, New York. A 19-mile Trail System accessible from the camp is designed to offer recreation activities such as hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing.
