Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for inquiring about Young People's Day Camp.

Since 1972 we have provided safe, fun filled summers for thousands of youngsters from Queens. (As well as peace-of-mind for their parents).

Over the years our camping philosophy has remained the same: to ensure a safe and memorable camp experience by combining a diversified program of physical activity (swimming, sports, arts and crafts, nature and science, etc.), with the excitement of trips, shows, and special events. We are proud of what we have accomplished.

Young People's Day Camp of Queens is accredited by the American Camping Association and is supervised by licensed teachers and administrators. The ratio of campers to counselors is 5 to 1.


Free Transportation!

Transportation is available at no additional cost. We use only state certified drivers and Board of Education Yellow School Buses or Vans.


Young People's Day Camp of Queens believes in value and convenience. We offer 2-8 week programs. There are no hidden costs. Enrollment begins with a small deposit, with the balance being paid off in monthly installments prior to camp beginning.

Young People's Day Camp of Queens is required to be Licensed to operate by the City of New York Board of Health. The Camp is also required to be inspected twice each summer. The inspection records are on file at the Board of Health office.

Please take your time in reviewing the information provided on this website. Please feel free to call us with any questions or to arrange for a camp visit with one of our staff members.

We look forward to serving you and your children.

Denice Coles-Jeffries,
Executive Director, Young People's Day Camp of Queens
