Pee Wee ( ages 3-5)
Our Pee Wee Camp is a gentle introduction to the day camp experience. Our emphasis is on activities through which your child will learn, grow and strengthen the skills needed for school in an informal setting. Your child’s days will include daily swim, arts & crafts, sports, swim instruction, games, music and dance, gymnastics, drama, age appropriate local trips surprise days and so much more. In all, our Pee Wee program offers age appropriate fun activities for the rookie camper and promotes their emotional and physical well-being. Groups are small and coed with excellent camper to counselor ratios. 

Junior and Middle Camps (Grades 1 - 4)
Campers are encouraged to explore their interests by allowing them to choose specialty activities for themselves. We teach campers the importance of friendship, cooperation, and respect for the environment in which we live by modeling this behavior and incorporating these values into our expectations of campers and staff. Each camp week is built around a theme that comes alive in the songs we sing, the arts and crafts we make, the games we play,  and a very special event.  Our ongoing staff training incorporates the same weekly theme, and the result is personal growth for campers and staff alike. 

Campers are involved in activities such as sports, gymnastics, arts &Craft, chess, music dance and  daily swimming in our beautiful renovated facility  Our daily swim program includes recreational and instructional swim session by American Red Cross certified instructors. We also go on a weekly trip to fun and exciting destinations throughout the tri-state area.

Senior Camp (Grades 5 & Up)
Year after year, the crowd turns out for Senior Camp, a program that offers the kind of variety and options that this age group enjoys.  In the context of a full recreational summer program, the underlying theme in Senior Camp “Around the World in 40 Days” takes Senior Campers  to places they never been before and has them making crafts, playing games and celebrating holidays from the countries and cultures they “visit.” Mini-academies in Senior Camp provide time for elective activities like Arts & Crafts, Music, Drama, Martial Arts, Basketball, Soccer and Baseball.  They’re longer periods, great for really getting into the project or game.

Senior Campers have an enthusiasm of their own that follows them wherever they go. 

  • Features Two Trips Each Week
    Seniors travel twice a week to destinations ranging from cultural and learning centers like theater, museums and zoos to recreational activities such as canoeing, skating, water and amusement parks and ball games.
  • Overnight
    Our annual two day, one night trip to Club Getaway, a top-notch residential camp in the Berkshires, is always a popular choice for our campers.  Solid camp friendships and close relationships with the staff give our Seniors the confidence they need to enjoy what for most is a first overnight camp experience.  Travel is by first-class coach bus.
