Hamaspik Resort looks to add rec building, pool

ROCK HILL — The Hamaspik Resort in Rock Hill initially operated as a private hotel used by those associated with the New York State Hamaspik Association (NYSHA), but it is now also open to the public for part of the week.

The project went before the Thompson Planning Board on April 13 to discuss the new location of a recreational building and pool that will be constructed behind the hotel’s main building along Rock Hill Drive.

The proposed 37,000 square-foot recreational building would be used for classrooms, an indoor sports arena, and an additional shul and mikveh.

The multi-use property plans to function as a hotel during the winter months, and as a sleepaway camp during the summer that will cater to individuals who are “diagnosed with autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, behavior disorders, brain injury [who] will have the opportunity to enjoy a summer camp catered to their needs,” according to the operation plan.
