Our Waterfront and Aquatics Program looks out over Orchard Lake. Offering both swimming and boating, the Waterfront is the most popular area at Onteora, especially on those hot summer days. We have swimming areas for non-swimmers, beginners, and swimmers, a large program area for those taking BSA Guard and Lifesaving, as well as a floating dock. Our small craft area with separate dock area offers row-boats, canoes, sailboats (sun-fish), and kayaks.
