Our Mission and Values

New Country Day Camp is an open-tent community that celebrates and sustains joyful, outdoor summer experiences where all can thrive. We build meaningful connections with ourselves, each other, and the natural world around us through innovative programming that is rooted in Jewish tradition and guided by universal values.


We foster personal growth by encouraging all community members to make adventurous choices, look with curiosity at the world around them, and take responsibility in our community.


We build meaningful connections and restorative relationships through empathy, perspective sharing, and kindness.


We are a respectful community that is broadened by diversity, deepened by compassion, and strengthened through teamwork.


We value experiences over material things, and maintain a lasting and active passion for natural splendor and community, and inspire these actions in the people around us.
