Young People’s Day Camp of Staten Island has been the #1 Staten Island day camp since 1972! For 50 years we have been providing children with unforgettable summers. Young People's Staten Island camp is centrally in Staten Island. Our spacious location gives us the ability to offer many exciting programs and invite a wide range of guest performers and speakers to our Staten Island camp. We also have the ability to offer a variety of lunches the children can purchase. Large tented areas add to the joy of eating meals outdoors. And campers have plenty of courts and fields to get their physical activity in for the day!

Over the many generations, the staff and campers at the Staten Island camp location have become a close-knit family. We have the best, most highly qualified staff members that a camp can provide, many of whom were YPDC campers themselves. It is great to see them giving back to the community as counselors. We also have the distinct joy of serving multiple generations of families. We now have grandparents that were campers as children, sending their grandchildren to the Staten Island day camp they know and love.

As you can see, we provide a wide array of activities, while also providing free door-to-door transportation. Feel free to contact us to set up your private tour or to learn more about the #1 Staten Island day camp!

I had a wonderful time and was amazed and pleased to see how well organized and smooth the day went. From your bus drivers, to your counselors, to the campers themselves… they should all be applauded for their efforts for making Young People’s Day Camp a GREAT CAMP! I can’t wait to see what you have planned for Nicholas next summer!


Patrick and Emily had a great summer at camp. Thank you for what you have done for them. You made the transition to a new camp easy – for the kids and me. Patrick and Emily love camp and cannot wait for next year.

Thanks so much for your telephone call last week. That was so nice of you to take the time to contact the parents of your campers. The girls really enjoyed your camp and are looking forward to coming back

I just wanted to let you know how much fun Kayla and Brandin had at camp. These past four weeks have been memorable for them and they are good kids and truly deserve it. You run a great program and I recommend it every day at my job. It makes me very happy that my children experienced all these trips that I’m not able to take them on.

Just want to say thank you and your staff what u did for every one and my son I know sometimes he can be a hand full and he still talks about camp.. hope next year he will be better .once again thank you and hope to see you next year.


My son has already missed the camp and his friends. He described the camp as luxurious, fun and action packed. I also felt safe that my child was having fun in a protective environment.


Keith is amazing always so helpful & easy to get in touch with . Chris is the best my girls have been going for 5 years & Chris is always updating & keeping in touch with schedule changes & reminders . Chris is an amazing leader that creates amazing councilors . The trips are so much fun & my girls love it & made a lot of friends . Down to the bus driver Joe it’s the best & would highly recommend the ” family ” like atmosphere is something to be desired. I thank you all for another great year .

I loved Young People’s Day Camp! My daughter has been going for several years and she loves going every year and is already talking about how she “has” to go back next summer. Chris is great and always available to answer my questions. Thank you Chris, Keith and all the amazing staff. See you next summer.

Amazing. Loved it from day one .I’m very lucky to have my union cover majority of the cost which included lunch this was very helpful. The trips were amazing, the staff was excellent. We will be returning next year.

Just completed our 5th summer at YPDC. Could not have been happier. Keith and Chris, along with the rest of the staff, always ensure a safe and fun filled camp experience. Thank you for another great summer! We will be back next year!

I was very nervous sending my 5 year old to camp for the first time. They kept in contact with me and my child came off the bus with the biggest smile i ever seen. Thank you for making me at ease we will be returning next year !!!
