ABOUT OUR CAMP


Young People’s Day Camp of Suffolk has been one of the top ranked camps in Suffolk county since 1972! For almost 50 years we have been providing children ages 4-14 with unforgettable summers.  Our philosophy is to grow children intellectually, physically and emotionally in a FUN, SAFE environment.

We are located at the beautiful campus of Stony Brook University. This incredible campus has expansive outdoor fields as well as state-of-the-art indoor, air conditioned facilities, including a new gym, a dedicated arts and crafts room and a studio for dance, zumba, yoga, karate and more. Our campers eat lunch in our spacious student union ballroom and have the option to buy lunch or bring their own.  Campers enjoy indoor pools, water and sprinkler activities on our fields, and visits to the local beach.

We are a family owned and operated business entrenched in the local community. Our leadership team is made up of teachers and school administrators who have been in the camping industry for many decades, while our staff is made up mostly of teachers and college students.  Many of our staff were YPDC campers themselves who loved the camp so much that they chose to come back and pay it forward.  We also have the distinct joy of serving multiple generations of families. We now have parents and grandparents that were campers as children, sending their kids to the YPDC Suffolk day camp they know and love.

We offer 2-8 week programs and offer flexible payment plans to meet the needs of our camp families. Door-to-door transportation is included for all campers.
