Olmsted Center is a retreat and camp facility located on a 78-acre site in Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY approximately 60 minutes from the George Washington Bridge 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 regardless of ethnic, race or spiritual orientation. Currently, the mission is carried out through two main programs:
Camp Olmsted – sleepaway and day camp summer programs for youth ages 6 to 14 years. During our programs campers can enjoy a variety of fun and engaging activities such as swimming, computers, sports, hiking, art, performances and ropes challenge course activities. These activities are designed to build campers self-esteem and enhance their social skills. Our program and facilities are accredited by the American Camp Association and licensed by the Department of Health.
Olmsted Retreat Center – provides year round facilities for churches, religious groups, not for profit organizations, schools and families to hold retreats, meetings, conferences and other gatherings. These facilities include the Manor House (our largest facility which can accommodate up to 24 persons), Kirkwood House (our Victorian facility which can accommodate up to 20 persons) and three Cabins (our more rustic setting that can accommodate up to 23 persons each).
