Tween Camp

 Welcome to Tween Camp…

a time for our campers to grow and experience more than ever before. Tween Camp is designed for campers entering 6th grade, (Tweens I) and 7th grade (Tweens II). Campers get to benefit from spending their time enjoying all of our outdoor amenities at the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds, including swim, sports, and special activities. The other half of their time is spent traveling on day and long trips, to keep it exciting for this unique age group. Tween campers have a style and pace all their own and we have designed programs especially to meet their needs. A hot or cold lunch option is available when at the campgrounds. In addition to all these wonderful activities, your child will experience the fun of traveling with their friends.

Tween Campers at the Samuel Field Y are provided with a program that features all the benefits of our campgrounds, plus destinations such as Jones Beach, amusement parks, theater trips, ball games, and much more. In addition, our Tweens get to experience traveling on two, 4-day overnights. Tweens love staying at great hotels and traveling on air-conditioned coach buses to exciting places such as the Amish Country, Connecticut and Boston. All trips are planned by our professional staff. Everywhere they go, they go in their unmistakable Tween Style.

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.
