The Nature Place Day Camp is an ACA accredited, nature-oriented and non-competitive summer day camp for children ages 4-16, located on 200 acres in Rockland County, New York. Campers come to us (we bus) from Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Rockland, Westchester and Bergen counties.  A typical day at camp is built around playing, learning, and growing outdoors, with friends, through hands-on, pressure-free programming supported by a well-trained staff.

Our Mission

To give campers a safe summer in which they can be themselves, have fun, be challenged,

connect with others and the earth, develop new life skills and be supported throughout.
