Learn About Our Camps

Five of our sleepaway camps are located on Sharpe Reservation, a more than 2,000 acre property, in Fishkill, NY. With nature trails, lakes and streams, a model farm and planetarium, our camps are just two hours from New York City. This will be the first summer of Camp Junior at Harriman State Park in memory of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz.

With nature as their classroom, campers learn to compost, hike wooded trails, and learn about the environment while exploring in the outdoors. Campers return home with more confidence, new talents and new friends. As campers learn new skills, they also learn about themselves.
