KOL: Special Needs Inclusion Programs
New Country Day Camp
New Country Day Camp, a program of the 14th Street Y and Educational Alliance is a fun-filled, inclusive, completely outdoor experience for campers entering grades K-8! Throughout the summer, campers explore nature, aquatics, arts, athletics, and new ideas through cultural Jewish story-telling. Our professional staff empowers campers to explore in a nurturing, kid-charged environment.
Camp takes place on the beautiful Henry Kaufman Campgrounds in Staten Island. Campers and staff ride to camp together on air-conditioned school buses from Brooklyn and Manhattan. Buses are a safe and fun part of camp, equipped with seatbelts and silliness.
At New Country Day Camp 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!
