New Country Day Camp

Spend a summer in the country, so close to the city

At the 14th Street Y’s New Country Day Camp, rising kindergartners through 8th graders can savor the peace that’s only found in nature while belonging to a close-knit community that celebrates the unbridled joy of youth and the diversity of New York City.

Transportation is provided to Staten Island’s 75-acre Henry Kaufmann Campground, where swimming pools, hiking trails, and open meadows set the scene for a summer of adventure and enrichment.

Our professional staff empowers campers to explore in a nurturing, kid-charged environment. Kids experience independence, starting with choosing their own weekly camp specialties, and grow their skills in swimming, sports, and the arts.

A non-religious program, NCDC kids jump into new ideas and universal concepts through cultural Jewish story-telling. We welcome campers of all backgrounds; your kids don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy the 14th Street Y’s New Country Day Camp. Inclusion of all types of families and children, including those with developmental differences and special needs, is a priority at NCDC.
