OUR Primary Focus:
A fun and safe camp day for our campers
We are a NUT-FREE camp and offer Kosher healthy lunches and weekly BBQs as well as fresh fruit/snacks. All beef, chicken, and turkey is nitrate and nitrite free.
Allergy-friendly menus are available for Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Vegetarian and more. If your child has food allergies, be sure to speak with our director about a customized menu.
Lunch includes the following each day: Daily salad and vegetables are always available. Tossed salad, whole wheat bread, tuna salad, egg salad, hard-boiled eggs, corn, beets, and bean salad. Dairy meals only have cream cheese, American cheese slices, organic yogurt, milk, and WOWbutter (soy-nut butter).
Each day we serve two snacks, which include healthy fruits, graham crackers, pretzels, and more.
We provide birthday cupcakes or a watermelon boat for $25 to celebrate your child's birthday at camp to make sure every camper in the group is included. We do not permit outside treats to be brought into camp.
Each camper is evaluated for swimming at the beginning of camp and given a colored wristband which shows the lifeguards and counselors their swimming level.
All children must bring a container of labeled sunscreen to be left at Beth El. We accept sunscreen that comes in a tube or bottle ONLY. Apply sunscreen to your child every morning before camp. Staff will re-apply throughout the day as needed using only your child’s sunscreen, sunscreen is not shared.
A full-time registered nurse is on duty at camp to handle minor injuries and dispense medication. If your child becomes ill or injured during the camp day we will contact you. If your child is home due to illness, please contact the camp office to let us know at 914.235.2700 x256. We especially need to know as soon as possible whether your child was seen by your pediatrician and is considered contagious.
Please call when your child is sick. Be aware that a child may only return to camp after being fever free or on antibiotics for 24 hours. If your child continues to have a cough, and your pediatrician feels that (s)he is not contagious, (s)he may return to camp with a doctor’s note. Please notify us of any new rashes as well.
