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 are guided by four core 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 fortify our community through our commitment to diversity, compassion and teamwork, and we emphasize the importance of respect for ourselves, for other people, and for the world that is our home.


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.
