New Town Day Camp

For Children Ages 2 – 5

New Town Day Camp

For Children 2–5 Years

Summer 2024: Thursday, June 27 – Friday, August 9*

At the 14Y’s New Town Day Camp (NTDC) children gather to celebrate summer and make new friends in a fun and safe environment.  

Children will enjoy playtime in the 14Y’s wonderful facilities, including its heated indoor pool, gymnasium and well-equipped air-conditioned classrooms. They especially love playing every day on our beautifully constructed rooftop playground, complete with sprinklers and shaded areas. To maximize children’s social opportunities, campers are divided by age group.

Please note that children younger than three do not swim at camp, but enjoy playing in the sprinklers on the roof daily!

“Summer Camp at 14Y was the best choice for my toddlers! The environment is packed with fun-filled activities including swimming every day, and yet the counselors and staff made time to ensure my kids’ emotional needs were met. I am grateful to have found an exciting and loving summer spot!”
—Camp Parent
