“A huge thank you to you and your entire team for hosting the annual NYU Wagner new student retreat on Sunday and Monday. The high quality of your staff along with your hospitality, friendliness, warmth, adaptability, and generosity of spirit make it so easy for us to show up and do our jobs without worrying about set-up needs.
Would you please give a special thank you to Beth, who so carefully took care of our injured students; and to the staff member whose name I didn't catch (she's going to school at the University of Oregon in Eugene) for driving our injured students down to the bus when we were on our way out.
And Brian, a special thank you to you for setting up my palace/cabin.
I hope you know how good you are at what you do. You have my gratitude and appreciation.”

“The St. John's University In Addition After School Project's experience of being at Iroquois Springs over the last five years, two weekends per year, has been characterized by your collaboration, flexibility, comfort, good humor, and readiness to meet our needs. Your staff has been superbly available and always ready to accommodate. Our group of teachers, children, and parents provide glowing feedback and look forward each camping weekend to the next one. We could not imagine a better relationship and facility. Everyone in In Addition considers Iroquois Springs as family.”
Dear Mark and Laura,
We had our wedding at Iroquois Springs two weekends ago, and we just wanted to thank you for hosting us and tell you what a wonderful time we had. The camp was ideal for what we had in mind; we were able to spend relaxing time with all of our guests throughout the weekend in a very laid-back setting, and then we had a fantastic party in the dining hall on Saturday night. Your buildings and facilities are so well-kept and beautiful.
Beyond the amazing setting, what really made our wedding weekend perfect was your incredible staff. We've been working with Brian for several months to plan everything, and he was helpful and accommodating every step of the way. Gary was there to greet us when we arrived on Wednesday with our friends to get things set up, and he was always there making sure that everything went smoothly. Gary was consistently kind, helpful and calm. Brian joined us the next day and between the two of them, and we knew that every detail was taken care of. Geraldine made sure that we had everything we needed in the cabins, and responded quickly to any requests. The crew of helpers in the kitchen, driving the golf carts, and keeping things clean were good-natured and efficient. We couldn't have been happier with the “chauffeur” service - our guests got where they needed to go without having to wait, and always with a smiling driver! Brandon did most of the shuttling on Saturday and we got so many compliments on how professional and sweet he was to our guests.
There were so many details that were taken care of for us that made the weekend wonderful - camp fires were set up each night, beer was kept cold, canoes were available, the grounds were always clean and neat. Tables, chairs, food, and ice just seemed to magically appear all weekend, but I know that there were many people working hard to make it all work seamlessly.
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend! It was exactly what we wanted, and your staff really made it come together for us. I know that you generally cater to large groups, but we'd be more than happy to give a glowing reference if you have any other potential clients thinking about having a wedding or other private event at Iroquois Springs.
Thank you so much!
