This classic summer camp is located within 500 majestic acres of Harriman State Park in Rockland County with a lake that will just take your breath away. A traditional day camp in every way, Manhattan families have been sending their children to Day Camp in The Park since 1979. Manhattan children get to experience everything that a summer camp should; incredible grounds and facilities, loads of activities, gain new friends, and most importantly, be around the most well trained, caring staff in the summer camp industry. Round trip bus transportation for every camper from Manhattan is included at Day Camp in The park.
Over the years Day Camp in The Park has developed a summer camp program which is carefully scheduled so that campers have the full benefit of outstanding swimming and sports, balanced with high-quality creative and performing arts, specialty activities, as well as exciting special events and even trips. "It's very action packed. The campers are always busy and having fun," said Karl Najork, the assistant director and camper at DCITP since he was 7 years old. "Really, my gift to the parents is that children go home happy and exhausted at the end of the day."
The Mission at Day Camp in the Park for Manhattan families and all others is , "To provide a fun filled summer camp experience for children. We help campers learn new skills, how to maximize their talents, introduce them to new activities, and how to make friends."
