Our Camp is unique because we have both on-site days as well as days which the camp goes to various places around Long Island. Our on-site days include clinics in which campers will partake in science, art, sports, music/dance, and snack. Our trip days include places such as Splish Splash, Adventureland, Fire Island, and other various places.
The safety and welfare of your child is our primary concern. We have a counselor to camper ratio that well exceeds the standards set by New York State. Each group is assigned with a counselor who is RTE (Responding to Emergencies) and CPR certified. Our certified lifeguard counselors accompany us on all water tips.

Saint Patrick’s Day Camp is broken into three major sections: Kiddie Camp, Main Camp, & Teen Travel Camp
KIDDIE CAMP AGES 3-5
Saint Patrick’s Day Camp offers our Kiddie Camp for children ages 3-5.
Daily activities include circle time, crafts, sports, games, music, as well as workbook time. Kiddie Camp also has field trips for full day campers. Kiddie Camp also participates in our talent shows. Morning and afternoon snacks are provided with safe alternatives for those children with allergies.
MAIN CAMP AGES 6-12
Saint Patrick’s Summer Camp’s main camp section is for all children ages 6-12.
Campers are all put into same age groups and go through the day together with their counselors. Our main camp has days that are both on-site and off-site. Our main camp also takes part in our camp specials such as talent shows, Green vs. Gold field days, and camp carnival, among others. Campers are able to select which days they come to camp with a minimum of two days for any week registered.
Main camp also has half-day trips in which they will be at St. Patrick’s for half of the day doing our clinics and spend the other half on a shorter trip. Our clinics are used to teach the campers skills such as making snack, as well as support creativity with science, music and motion, and art. Campers are provided with a fun summer experience that they will be sure to remember for a long time.
TEEN TRAVEL AGES 13-15
The Teen Travel portion of our camp is for children ages 13-15. Our Teen Travel group goes on trips everyday including places in New York City, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Exclusively available to our Teen Travel group are our overnight trips. Overnight trips are a big step for a teenager so we make sure they are fully prepared and supervised. Informational meetings regarding the trips are held to address any concerns that you or your camper may have.
