Olmsted Center is both a retreat and camp located on a 76 acre site in Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY and
overlooking the scenic Hudson River. It is blessed with rolling hills,
beautiful wooded areas, partial views of the Hudson and access to hiking
trails on Storm King Mountain. The camp is owned and operated by Five
Points Mission with oversight from the United Methodist City Society.
As testimony to the historical significance of Camp Olmsted,
it was added to the
National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
The purpose of Five Points Mission is to minister to the spiritual, social,
and physical needs of people without respect to ethnic, race or spiritual
orientation. Currently, the mission is carried out through the
following two main activities:
Camp Olmsted Summer Camp
- the ACA accredited camp is
for youth ages 6 to 13 years old. It consists of four, 12-day
resident sessions, which are held each summer beginning the end of
June. Activities at Camp Olmsted allow campers learn, grow and make new friends
in a fun, safe, nature enhanced environment. Programming includes swimming,
nature, challenge/ropes course, computers and other recreational activities.
Olmsted Retreat Center
- a facility that provides children, youth and adults who come mostly
from churches and not-for-profit organizations with a comfortable place
to meet, participate in planned activities and lodge
during the week and weekends throughout the year.
