Camps

We make the summer count. At the 14th Street Y, city kids get a true summer camp experience, recognized as a key to kids’ development.

Children explore new interests, grow their confidence and make friends for life.

Our campers dive into the creative arts, science and technology, sports and games and the great outdoors in a safe, fun and inclusive environment.

 

Camp Registration Opening in Early January!

We are busy planning for how to safely reopen our signature camps:

  • New Town Day Camp, an indoor camp at the 14Y facilities for children ages 2 to 5.
  • New Country Day Camp, an outdoor day camp located in the 75-acre Staten Island Greenbelt for campers entering Kindergarten through 8th grade.

Kimama 14Y Day Camp will also be opening registration soon! This unique program is specifically designed for Israeli-American children living in the United States. Hebrew-speaking counselors offer an unforgettable 8-week experience, including leading all activities exclusively in Hebrew. Kimama 14Y offers programming for campers ages 5–13, as well as a training program for ages 14–16.

As we plan for summer 2021, we want to hear from camp parents! If you have questions, concerns, or ideas about how we can make the 14Y Camps experience even better, please contact Lili Weiss-Voskidis, the 14Y’s Senior Director of Youth Programs, at LVoskidis@14StreetY.org.
