Tranquillity Camp

New York’s premier Jewish sleepaway camp and the best choice for your children’s summer home.

Tranquillity Camp has been a summer home for children ages 7 to 16 since 1919. Lifelong friendships develop while children enjoy fun in the sun all summer long on our 1,200 acre sleepaway camp. Tranquillity invites campers to participate in athletics, theater, nature, art and other summertime adventures in a safe and nurturing environment.

Over the years, Tranquillity has grown from its simple roots as a single farmhouse located on several acres of land, to an expansive campus with fully-modernized houses, a beautiful dining room, two swimming pools, a large multi-purpose Sports Center, a modern theater and an air-conditioned infirmary.

The majority of our children come from the tri-state area and as far away as Florida, Georgia and California. Relationships made at Tranquillity become lifelong friendships as evidenced by our robust Alumni organization.

Meet The Director

Richard Lerner

Born and Raised in Brooklyn NY, Richard spent his formative years at Tranquillity Camp as a camper, CIT, Counselor and Head Counselor. He stayed involved with camp as a frequent volunteer and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Tranquillity Alumni. He attended Long Island University and is a veteran of the US Air Force. After a career in business, Richard returned to Tranquility in 1996 and assume the role of Executive Director. He continues to honor the traditions and lessons he learned as a camper and counselor, but has guided Tranquillity into the 21st century recognizing that camp should change and grow to accommodate this generation’s needs and wants. Change can be a positive, but not for the sake of change itself. His belief is that children need to appreciate play, nature, friendly competition and socialization. Camp is an opportunity to grow, learn responsibility and problem-solve without the need for electronics. Tranquillity remains “un-plugged”.
