About Greenbelt Summer Day Camp

The Greenbelt Summer Day Camp offers campers a unique, outdoor educational experience for campers ages 5 through 13. Located in High Rock Park, the cornerstone of the Greenbelt, activities include hands-on outdoor experiences, team building, crafts, and leadership development lead by our experienced educational staff. Our camp is great for nature lovers, young-scientists, creative types, and adventurers alike!

Sessions begin Monday, July 6 and continued through Thursday, August 6. Campers are placed into small groups for each of the five-week long sessions. Each session meets Monday through Thursday from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm.

Supporting the Greenbelt Conservancy

Proceeds from the Greenbelt Summer Day Camp support the Greenbelt Conservancy, a nonprofit organization working in partnership with NYC Parks to promote, sustain, and enhance the more than 2,800 acres of land known as the Greenbelt. Funds provide environmental education programs to people of all ages, encourage recreation and proper use of the land, and support many research projects focused on sustaining the landscape for years to come.

Camp activities and themes are targeted to specific age groups:

Young Buds (Ages 5 and 6)

Young Buds will participate in sensory activities, crafts, and outdoor exploration to discover the wonders of the forest. Your young naturalist will have fun learning about the animals, rocks, plants, and trees of High Rock Park.

Explorers (Ages 7 through 10)

Explorers camp introduces hiking skills, forest ecology, and outdoor adventure. Campers participate in group hikes, science experiments, crafts, and other fun activities to expand creative inquiry, build confidence in outdoor situations, and to increase knowledge of our local ecosystem.

Trailblazers (Ages 11 through 13)

Trailblazers provides adventure and leadership opportunities for older campers who are ready for challenge. Campers participate in service learning projects, Leave No Trace ethics, and outdoor skills focusing on leadership and group dynamics and offering "next step" for future outdoor leaders.
