New Town Day Camp, located at the 14th Street Y, provides children ages 3.6 through 6 years old with a safe, engaging, and active day camp experience. We divide the campers by age group and utilize our well-equipped and air-conditioned nursery school classrooms.
Our outdoor activities take place on the beautiful rooftop playground complete with a sprinkler area for daily water play along with fantasy play with our imagination playground.
Campers use the wonderful facilities of the Y including our indoor pool, indoor gym, community room, and art studio, where activities take place throughout the summer.
In order to provide the highest quality summer experience for our campers, we offer one full summer session from June 29th to August 12th with an option of half day or full day registration. The continuity of the full seven weeks assures our children the best developmentally appropriate experience.
