About Camp David

Camp David

In 1999, David N. Deutsch & Company established The Saratoga Weekend (aka “Camp David”), a three-day, invitation-only gathering of leading business executives, private equity investors, lenders and other capital providers, leading professional advisors, journalists, authors, scientists, educators, public officials and others in Saratoga Springs, NY. Now a biennial event, the conference explores issues of closely-held and family companies and ‘family offices;’ business strategy, M&A and finance; science and health; art and philanthropy; and personal well-being.

The last Camp David was special. Returning from the depths of the pandemic, our business-and-broader gathering was one of the most educational and enjoyable to date. Welcome Reception featuring Michael Schein, author of best seller “The Hype Handbook,” to business sessions and a welcome by Saratoga mayor, Meg Kelly, and panels on “Business Strategy, Now,” “Post-Pandemic Well Being,” “What is Justice?,” “Marketing Matters” and a presentation by John Ubaldo, subject of the award-winning film, “The Bullish Farmer,” the presentations were outstanding. Then, an evening program on the stage of Saratoga Performing Arts Center and, of course, our Day at the Races.

Camp David 2023 will be held August 17-19, 2023. Conference attendance is limited and hotels sell out quickly so Register and Reserve Hotel Rooms Early. Invitations will be sent via email and social media. If you don’t receive an invitation and believe you should attend, contact David directly at dndeutsch@dndco.com or 212-980-7800 x1.


The conference fee payable by attendees of the three-day Saratoga Weekend is modest thanks to the support of our partners and host. For additional information about partnering with The Saratoga Weekend and heightening your organization’s profile at this opinion-leading event, contact admin@dndco.com.

Where to Stay

The Saratoga Weekend occurs at many venues, and its attendees stay at many hotels, inns, bed & breakfasts, etc. While the business sessions are at the Gideon Putnam, there is no single “conference hotel.” Note that many of Saratoga’s most popular — and smaller — places sell-out well ahead of racing season. No worries, the Saratoga Chamber of Commerce keeps a list of hotels with availability. And, we’d be pleased to help.

Our most recommended places to stay are:
-Gideon Putnam
-Hilton Garden Inn
-Hampton Inn of Saratoga
-Holiday Inn

-Embassy Suites
