Eagle Island Camp

Friends of Eagle Island, Inc., received a $10,000 grant from the Hart Family Fund for Small Towns to create architectural drawings for Eagle Island Camp. Completion of the documents will allow work to be prioritized based on urgency and the Friend’s programmatic goals. They will serve as guiding documents and will help to establish a long-term maintenance plan for the camp.

Eagle Island Camp is nestled on a 31-acre island on Upper Saranac Lake, New York. The Swiss chalet-inspired buildings, completed in 1903, were designed by prominent New York architect William Coulter. The camp was used as a private summer home until 1937, when it was donated to the Girl Scouts of Maplewood and the Oranges, so that "children may always play" there. For 70 years, they did just that, discovering the outdoors and caring for the historic buildings. Sadly, in 2011, Eagle Island was put up for sale. Former campers and affiliates formed Friends of Eagle Island, Inc. to save the camp, and successfully purchased the property in 2015.
