History

Head over to our old website for the official and complete NYSMC camp history. (This updated site is a work in progress, if you haven’t already noticed!)

NYSMC.com History

This includes the complete text of Dr. Robert Swift’s book Music from the Mountains: the New York State Music Camp 1947-1996, now out of print. It was reproduced here with Dr. Swift’s permission.

The camp’s history since 1996 is also available on the NYSMC.com site.

Thanks to NYSMC camper Angie Bottini and NYSMC camper/counselor/faculty/conductor Ethan Smith for their personal expeditions to the Otter Lake site, and sharing their photos of the camp’s State Historical Marker.
