About Camp Kaufmann
Located 75 miles north of New York City in Dutchess County, Camp
Kaufmann stretches over 425 acres and features a lake, an archery
range, a pool, hiking trails, a frog pond, a butterfly garden, an
organic garden and greenhouse, and rope challenge courses.
Each year, our camp welcomes more than 5,000 New York City Girl
Scouts. A distinguishing feature of Camp Kaufmann is that it brings
together girls from diverse backgrounds – some of which have never
left their own borough, let alone experienced camp. Camp Kaufmann is
owned and operated by the Girl Scouts of Greater New York, and is
fully accredited by the American Camp Association.
"At camp I learned that you can be who you want to be and you
don’t have to follow other people all the time" – Brownie Girl Scout
