Traditional Camp for Junior/Senior Campers
Cortelyou Day Camp offers a variety of camp experiences from our youngest to our oldest campers. Junior campers (AGES 6-9 YRS) are now ready to take on new challenges and are open to new experiences. Senior Campers (AGES 10-15) are our more experienced campers who are ready for the real thrill of summer. Senior campers participate in camper-driven activities as well as are allowed more choices in their daily programming. Our camper’s days are filled with activities which include academics, arts and crafts, baking, cooking, dance, games, instructional swimming, outdoor play, pool parties, scavenger hunts, sports activities, off-site trips and so much more. A traditional camp experience exposes students to an assortment of activities.
In addition to our traditional camp programming, this year we are offering a limited amount of specialty camps. This is for families of Junior & Senior Campers who would like to choose a program that caters to the specific interests of their camper.
