Camps Tova & Bari Tov
Tova and Bari Tov campers enjoy making friends while developing creative, social and physical skills. They participate in a variety of camp activities specially designed to foster each child's success at our 50 acre campgrounds in Rockland County — the grounds are located 20 minutes outside of New York City.
Monday – Thursday campers swim each day and participate in sports, arts and outdoor activities. On Fridays, Tova and Bari Tov campers go on trips to destinations such as a beach, a small zoo, an amusement park, a bowling alley and more. Counselors and specialists have a background in special education and are committed to providing each child with a positive and rewarding summer experience. Our small camper to staff ratio (4:1 in Tova, 1:1 in Bari Tov) ensures that each camper receives individualized attention every day during the summer.
The Summer 2016 is currently sold out but enrollment for Summer 2017 will be open in mid-July. We encourage full summer enrollment for first-time campers which is $6,250. Camp tuition includes bus transportation, hot lunch, snack, weekly trips, t-shirt, water bottle and towel service. Transportation is provided to and from camp every day from 92Y. Drop-off is between 8:15-8:30 am and pick-up is between 4:45-5 pm.
All new campers to Tova and Bari Tov must go through our intake process for acceptance into one of the full summer programs. Please begin by downloading and completing the Camper Information Form and returning it to the camps office with a copy of your child’s most recent IEP. A member of the camps team will then confirm receipt of your application and will guide you through the next steps of the process.
We are here to help! Please email or call 212.415.5573 to learn more about finding the best program for your child.
