New Country Day Camp

New Country Day Camp

Hiking trails, swimming pools, and open meadows set the scene for a summer of adventure on the 75-acre Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds in the forest of the Staten Island Greenbelt. For over 60 years, campers entering Kindergarten-8th grade have been transported on air-conditioned buses from convenient locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn for a summer in the country, so close to the city.

Our professional staff empowers campers to be themselves in a supportive, nurturing environment. With innovative, kid-charged activities from nature and science, to the arts and athletics, in addition to two daily periods of instructional and free swim, there’s something for everyone at NCDC.

*We welcome transgender, intersex, non-binary and gender-non conforming campers
