Thank you to everyone who joined us for five amazing weeks of camp.

For Campers Ages 5 – 13
A specialty program of New Country Day Camp (NCDC), New Country Pride Camp (NCPC) is a welcoming, open-tent community of LGBTQ+ young people and staff that celebrates and sustains joyful, outdoor summer experiences where all can thrive.
Set on 75 beautiful acres of campgrounds on the Staten Island Greenbelt, Pride campers receive daily swimming lessons and free swim, and attend daily programs led by NCDC’s teachers in activities including Build, Movement, News & Film, Theater, Art & Design, LABA, Martial Arts, Music, Cooking, Camping, and Gardening, Sports, and more! Campers participating in Pride Camp have access to all NCDC transportation options.
We also plan exclusive weekly programming just for Pride campers, which includes discussions, preparation for our special Pride Shabbat, and activities led by guest teachers—community leaders, activists, artists, and others from NYC’s LGBTQ+ community. Last year, we partnered with GLAAD and National Queer Theater! Bringing successful and passionate LGBTQ+ folks into the camper experience will broaden their view of the incredible diversity of the community and the many ways in which an LGBTQ+ identity can be expressed in society, work, and family.
Please contact us at Newcountry@14StreetY.org if you have any questions.
General Registration for Summer 2024 begins 12:00 PM on Monday, December 4.
