Welcome to Camp Liahona
on beautiful Whaley Lake!!

Camp Liahona - New York is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and operated by the Newburgh NY Stake to serve the needs of Young Women, Church groups, and families in southern New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey. This beautiful camp is located on a wooded tract of lakefront and mountain property covering over 80 acres along the shores of scenic Whaley Lake and bordering the Appalachian Trail and Depot Hill State Forest.

If you came to Camp Liahona years ago, we invite you to return to see the changes that we've made, and enjoy the serenity and beauty of the New York countryside. If this is your first time to visit us, we welcome you and hope that your stay will be peaceful and fun.
