Open Tent Philosophy
Camp is…an open tent
Open Tent Judaism is an approach to Jewish community based on the story of Abraham and Sarah's tent, which was open on four sides to welcome all who approached, regardless of prior knowledge or background. The great big New Country Day Camp tent is open to and provides access to:
- FAMILIES: Diverse, interesting and talented young families from areas such as the East Village, the West Village, TriBeCa, Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Williamsburg, Bed Stuy and more!
- STAFF: Professional staff with years of childcare experience, college degrees, MFA’s, MSW’s, and more ruach (spirit) than any camp staff you’ll ever meet!
- CAMPERS: We meet campers where they are, from those who identify as traditional learners to those with high-functioning autism and other related developmental differences such as ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, and language delays. Our world-class staff supports all campers as they learn and grow into pioneers, artists, athletes, scientists, and more! To learn if our staff might be able to appropriately support your child with or without special needs, please contact the camp team directly at 646-395-4357.
