Young People’s Day Camp of Suffolk has been one of the top ranked camps in Suffolk county since 1972! For the past 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 Knox School in St. James. This incredible campus has expansive outdoor fields as well as indoor, air conditioned facilities, including a gym, a dedicated arts and crafts room and a studio for dance, zumba, yoga, karate and more. Campers enjoy an outdoor pool for both instructional and recreational swim, 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 can be provided for all campers.
