Vanderkamp Center | Retreat Center and Christian Summer Camp http://www.vk.org/ Vanderkamp Center is a retreat center and summer camp located north of Oneida Lake – roughly forty-five minutes from Syracuse, and less than an hour from Rome, Oswego, and Utica. Vanderkamp’s private 45 ace lake has been pristinely preserved for all to enjoy. All are welcome to enjoy our network of trails for cross-country skiing, hiking, or biking – or head down to the lake for canoeing, kayaking, or rowboating. Full meal services are offered to those interested, but kitchens are located in each of our retreat lodges for those wanting to cook their own meals. We offer programs for anyone from a solo retreater to a group of 150!
