This is the “best of both worlds” — weekdays at camp and home with the family on weekends, we provide the transportation. It’s an ideal program for first-time resident campers, but it is also great for those campers (and their families) who like this “camping lifestyle”. You will choose your own activities every day at camp, which gives you the freedom to try lots of new things and to do more of the things you like best and want to learn more about. We have lots of team and individual sports where you will learn new skills in a supportive, low-competition environment. You also have lots of fine arts and performing arts to choose from, so your day is really designed by you. When not in activities, you are part of a bunk group (10-12 boys or girls and 2-3 counselors) that is like your “camp family”. You live together (in our comfortable dorms), eat meals together and do evening programs together. You’ll make great friends in your bunk group, as well as in the activities when you meet other campers who share your interests. Our camp is located at Blair Academy, a beautiful boarding school campus that has magnificent facilities in a rural setting. The facilities — for the arts and sports — are superb. Swimming is in our indoor, heated pool. Campers range in age from 7 to 15, boys and girls. (Note to teens: we have LOTS of 13, 14 and 15-year old campers). We give tours of camp on the weekends, so please contact us for your appointment. Because of the weekly transportation, our campers come from New Jersey (north and central), Manhattan, Westchester and Rockland. Additional note: our facilities include 10 tennis courts, 7 squash courts, indoor pool, 3 gyms, fitness center, 500-seat theatre, dance & music studios, ceramics studio, arts studios, and more. By the way, costs are all-inclusive (transportation, meals and snacks, lodging, all program activities) and tipping is not allowed at our camp. We have some special programs in Ultimate (Frisbee), Squash, Tennis and Fitness, so ask us about that if you’re interested. We also offer some weekend trips for campers entering 7th grade and older.
