Girl Scouts of Greater New York is excited to announce the launch of
our very own Sleep Away program at Camp Kaufmann. Whatever your
girl loves to do, she will find it at Camp Kaufmann!
Summer Sleep Away Camp is all about making everlasting memories with
new friends! This is the first time in over 20 years that our girls in
Greater New York are going to enjoy a true summer camp experience in
July and August. In the past, the Mom and Me weekend offerings were
just in June. We heard the girls loud and clear and are expanding our programming!
Campers in grades 2 – 8 have the opportunity to select a
one-week long experience, from Sunday to Friday, with a fun
theme! Our program gives girls the chance to try new things in a safe
and supportive community. There is a special magic that exists in the
woods and in building camp traditions. Campers will earn badges and
enjoy camp amenities such as:
- High ropes course*
- Low ropes
- Swimming in the pool
- Row boating on Lake
- Canoeing on Lake Carola
- Theater & performing arts pavilion
- Campfires and
- Vegetable garden
- Butterfly garden
- Frog pond
- Environmental science activities
- Hiking trails
- Basketball court
- Gaga pit
*Available for Juniors
All of this is a part of an amazing summer experience at Camp
Kaufmann. We hope you join us in giving girls a variety of experiences
that acclimate them to the natural world.
Camp Kaufmann will have 8 weeks of summer camp for girls to choose
from. We are located just shy of 2 hours from NYC and are accessible
by car and Metro North. We will also have a bussing option available.
Campers arrive at 3pm Sunday and depart at 3pm Friday.
