About Our Camp

Staten Island Camp Montage

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Young People's Day Camp has been providing a safe and memorable summer for the children of Staten Island since 1972. We are currently preparing for our 44th Summer and it promises to be our most exciting summer ever.

Licensed teachers, administrators and qualified college students make up the staff of Young People's Day Camp of Staten Island. Our camper to counselor ratio is 8 to 1. (Less for our nursery division.)

The daily schedules that Young People's offers are second to none. Field trips consist of: Bowcraft Amusement Park, I Play America, Museum of Natural History, Somerset Patriots Baseball, Turtle Back Zoo and many more.

Free Transportation!

Transportation pick up begins around 7:00/7:15 in the morning and then campers are dismissed at 3:30 in afternoon.

Therefore, we strongly encourage all children to leave their electronics at home and participate at camp as much as possible. All of our games and activities are based around having fun and everyone being able to participate.

A Personalized Atheletic Instructional Program!

As a former Major League Baseball player, I feel the need to keep our youth as healthy and active as ever. Through proper nutrition and physical activity we can help build self esteem and a positive self image to today's youth. Therefore, we will be implementing a personalized athletic instructional program. This program will cover various sports for each child through the course of the summer camp season. In addition, we will be providing some "Nutritional Facts" in our weekly newsletter.

In closing, the most important thing that I can do as the Director is to maintain the integrity that Young People's Day Camps has built over the past 44 years. I will always make myself available for both you and your children throughout the year as well as the camp season. I invite you to visit us at our open house events, or to call me directly at 1-800-DAY CAMP.

Keith Glauber,
Director YPDC of SI
