Deer Mountain Day Camp is one of the first established and most respected day camps in the Tri-State area, located just minutes from the George Washington and Tappan Zee bridges. Founded in 1956, Deer Mountain sits on 25 beautiful mountainside acres surrounding our spring-fed lake. At Deer Mountain, age-appropriate programs for children 3-15 years old have been crafted by certified teachers and educational professionals to give your child the most enriching summer experience possible. With swimming, sports, arts, outdoor adventure, lake and special event activities, campers rave that they have “the best summer ever". Deer Mountain Day Camp has been family owned since its inception and is now in its second generation of leadership.
Personal tours of camp are available on weekdays and on most weekends throughout the year. Please call us at (845) 354-2727 to set up an appointment. For more information, visit our website at www.deermountaindaycamp.com.
