Opportunities at NCDC

New Country Day Camp: Leaders in Training Program

New Country Day Camp offers a Leaders in Training program for campers entering 7th and 8th grade at our beautiful campgrounds on the Staten Island Green Belt. In addition to enjoying the best of what NCDC has to offer- swim twice a day (instructional and recreational), and elective programming for high-interest curricular units, LITs also enjoy leadership training through social service projects and big sibling time with our youngest campers, as well as multiple off-site day trips and overnights. LITs can choose to register for one of two 4-week sessions, or the full summer.

A program of the 14th St Y, New Country Day Camp exists to preserve what might otherwise be lost in contemporary NYC: The peace one can only find in nature, the feeling of belonging to a close-knit community, unbridled joy and celebration of youth, and Jewish identity in harmony with the diversity of NYC and the world around us.
