Summer Camp 2021

Summer Camp Catalog 2021 (PDF)

Meet your camp counselors for this summer! 

Yes, we are planning to run an in-person summer camp for the summer of 2021. Camp registration is now open. We will observe all New York and Chemung County regulations. More details to come closer to the beginning of the camp season!

There are only a handful of spots left in our 2021 summer camp programs. If you are looking for other opportunities when Tanglewood camps are full, please check out these offerings in the Summer of Innovation and this catalog for local camps

Tanglewood is excited to provide a unique opportunity for your child to learn about their relationship to the natural world while supporting their physical, social, and intellectual growth.  Each camp offers a wide variety of activities that provide campers with outdoor adventures.  Your child will explore and make discoveries on our 300 acres and have up close encounters with our resident animals.  Our summer camps are for children finishing Kindergarten through 5th grade.  Please click on the summer camp catalog link for more information.

This catalog includes information on each camp, how to register, what to pack, and more - everything you need to know is in the camp catalog! 

Parents and grandparents at a family/senior membership or above can register children/grandchildren.  Membership must be current at time of registration and during the selected camp session.  If you need to become a member, please click here Online Membership Application .  Membership applications are processed Tuesday-Friday during business hours.

Shot records need to be submitted every year.  Due to the increasing numbers of people infected with dangerous communicable diseases in the US, we are only allowing Medical Exemptions for vaccinations. Medical Exemption Form (.docx) is linked here, or contact Deanna at 607-732-6060 for a paper copy of the Medical Exemption Form. Thank you for helping us keep the camp children, visitors and staff healthy. 
You can email shot records to tanglewoodoffmgr@outlook.com

or mail them to 443 Coleman Ave., Elmira, NY 14903. 


As always, our goal is to make our unique and fun programs available to all. We have a camp assistance fund created by generous donors. In 2021, we have limited scholarship opportunities and scholarships are on a first come first served basis. To learn more about the scholarships for financially eligible families, or to contribute to the scholarship fund, please contact DeannaCamp Tuition Application.pdf and Membership Waiver Application.pdf  You must fill out applications and submit proper documents in order to be considered.

Everything you need to know is in the camp catalog.
