Katy Isaacson Elaine Gordon Lodge

Adirondack Title Icon AHRC Katy Isaacson/Elaine Gordon Lodge

"The Katy Isaacson and Elaine Gordon Lodge is an alternative to traditional summer recreation programs for adults and teens with mild or moderate intellectual and developmental disabilities. In a non-restrictive, yet supervised environment, guests are treated with respect, making their own decisions on how to spend their time. They are offered the opportunity to relax and enjoy a true vacation at a summer resort. The Lodge is the only program of its kind in New York State. It offers five, eleven day vacations, including one session for young adults, (ages 18 to 29) and one session for teens, (ages 13 to 17). Each session accommodates up to 70 guests, and the guest to staff ratio is three to one, sufficient to assure personal attention to each participant.
