Lourdes Camp in Skaneateles closing due to blue green algae in water

Lourdes Resident & Day Camp in Skaneateles has been closed due to blue green algae.

The camp announced Monday that camp leaders, along with the Onondaga County Health Department, made the decision to close the camp “effective immediately.”

Camp Director Mike Preston said the move was made “because the camp draws water from Skaneateles Lake, the water source for camp is now unsafe to drink.”

Preston said campers are now being provided bottled water and parents have been notified to pick up their children as soon as possible.
