Our Story

Welcome to 92Y Camps! For over 60 years, our camps have offered the best summer ever to kids throughout NYC.

With a 50-acre campground (located in Rockland County) filled with state-of-the-art music, dance, swim and craft facilities, interactive multimedia and filmmaking studios and thrill-seeking adventure courses, no one does summer camp like 92Y. Our campers experience a blend of athletic, artistic and educational activities — the quintessential summer camp experience is only 20 minutes outside of New York City, with pickups in Manhattan, Brooklyn and north of Manhattan.

We are dedicated to providing the highest standard summer camp. Our expertly designed programs provide endless fun and opportunity for discovery and adventure. Whether they’re learning to dive for the first time in our Red Cross Swim program, soaring through the trees on a zip line or creating ceramics, every child is cherished and given space to grow.

There’s no better way to spend the summer!

It’s All about VAULES …

We want all our campers to feel safe and secure, both emotionally and physically, so they can develop and grow. That means giving them the chance to take safe risks, learn through trial and error, build creatively and develop resilience — all in an atmosphere of warmth and fun.

  • Kindness — Campers learn empathy and respect for others. They find out what it’s like to make a positive difference in the world.
  • Individuality — Our camp electives and multi-track specializations empower children to ask questions and gain a sense of independence to try things at their own pace, think for themselves and gain the confidence to be guided by their own interests and talents.
  • Motivation — Campers retain their natural curiosity and zest for learning something new.
  • Creativity — Campers are supported by staff in tackling problems and finding solutions by working them out for themselves.
  • Resilience — Campers are encouraged to believe in themselves, to respond to failure as an opportunity to learn, to bounce back from disappointment, to approach life with enthusiasm.
