Junior Camp

Welcome to Junior Camp…

where children in Kindergarten through 5th grade spend fun-filled days at the natural setting of our 350-acre campgrounds, located in Huntington, Long Island. Campers are encouraged to build new friendships, as well as develop confidence through carefully supervised small group activities. Camp trips are a part of the program, and our Junior campers are out exploring throughout the summer. Campers are picked up from Northeast Queens and Western Nassau County, where they begin their day.

Our action packed program provides a diverse array of sports and arts with a daily swim. We have 4 pools designed specifically for your child’s swim ability. All swim activities are taught and supervised by Red Cross certified water safety instructors, who work all summer to improve your child’s swim abilities. Our sports facilities include ga-ga, basketball, beach volleyball, field hockey, archery, plus 6 fields for soccer, softball, and baseball.

Elective programs allow your child to explore different activities and gain more concentrated skills in a variety of areas including gardening, sports, creative arts, dance and play production.

 
For a look into our "Typical" Day out at camp, take a look at a daily schedule.


Our overnight and late-night schedule begins in Kindergarten and evolves on a transitional path that increases as our campers get older and wiser.

Division A (K-1st Grade) Division B (2nd Grade) Division C (3rd Grade) Division D (4th Grade)
Campers entering Kindergarten & First Grade will enjoy a Late Night at our campgrounds and an optional Overnight at the Samuel Field Y in Little Neck. Campers entering Second Grade will have an exciting Late Night at our campgrounds and an Overnight at the Samuel Field Y in Little Neck. Campers entering Third Grade will experience one Overnight at the Samuel Field Y in Little Neck and one at our campgrounds. Campers entering Fourth Grade get adventurous with an Overnight at our campgrounds and an Overnight trip to our Sleepaway Camp in Poyntelle, Pennsylvania.

 

When campers get to fifth grade, they enter Young Adventurers,
or as we call it, “YA”!

If you are ready for more adventure, more travel and more fun than ever, then this is the camp for you!
At the Samuel Field Y we feel that these campers deserve an identity all their own and their camp program has been designed to allow them to reap the benefits of our 350-acre campgrounds plus many bonuses and surprises. A hot or cold lunch option is available for all YA campers.

“YA” Campers, the oldest members of our Junior Camp, enjoy all the sports and swim activities that our magnificent campgrounds have to offer. They also get to experience trips to exciting places such as a Sesame Place late night, Adventureland, and much more.

In addition to the overnight at the campgrounds, YA campers will travel on a 3-day trip, to places such as Connecticut where campers visit the Mystic Seaport. Our trips are planned by our professional staff and our YA campers travel on coach buses and stay in great hotel accommodations. All activities and meals are included on the long trip.

All fees are based on 5 - days per week. We are a customizable camp and a personalized fee can be created for you based on the needs of your family.
