Making the camp experience possible for more children
Help bring the camp experience to more children.
Every day, children come home from New Country Day Camp tired, dirty, and happy. That’s what we hear from a lot of parents and caregivers like you. Each day at camp a new adventure awaits.
As children jump on the bus heading to Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds, excitement takes over and campers embark upon something so different from city life. They’re immersed in nature, sometimes for the very first time. Among the meadows and trees, they develop a close-knit community that celebrates the unbridled joy of youth and the diversity of NYC.
We wish every child had a chance to experience nature and this close-knit community.
Help us make camp a reality for children who’ve never had a chance to get out of the city and experience all camp has to offer—donate to support NCDC scholarship funds!
Together, we can give this amazing experience to more young people like your child next summer.
TWO WAYS TO HELP!
- Make a donation below in any amount – our goal is to raise $25,000 for more scholarships!
- Start your own mini fundraiser! This helps us spread the word about the NCDC Scholarship Fund and when everyone donates a little, it ends up becoming a lot!
Support Scholarship Funds for New Country Day Camp
Start Your Own Fundraising Campaign!
We’re raising $25,000 for camp scholarships, and every dollar helps.
Just $50 can provide hot, nutritious meals for one camper for an entire session of camp, which ensures they have the energy to play and have fun all day long.
The more families that participate, the more scholarship funds we’ll have to provide an amazing camp experience for even more children.
Start your own mini fundraiser and ask your friends and family to support you!
Creating your own fundraising page is a great opportunity to teach your child about Tzedakah, and give back to this worthwhile cause.
