Introductory Notes

Add Summer Camp and Colony Information to Your GPS Device

If you use a Garmin, TomTom, Magellan or Mio GPS device, you can now add summer Camp and Colony information to your device. Use the links above to select your device.

Using the Catskills Summer Camps and Colonies Information on Your GPS

The exact way you access the Summer Camps and Colonies information varies depending on your device. For some devices, there is an option in the menu system for "Extras" -> "Custom POIs", which will then display a list of all the Camp and Colonies that are near you. Clicking on any Camp or Colonies name will display its full information, and you can then click to have the GPS direct you to that location. Most devices will allow you to search on any part of a name. It might be easier to remove the word Camp or Yeshiva and search for the rest of the name. This may work better at limiting the available choices.

A special thank you to Dr. Yosi Fishkin of for allowing us to use his directions for loading the GPS.
