Our popular day camp program offers a quality, structured program at an affordable price.  Activities include Crafts, Games, Sports, Brain Games, Science, Self-Esteem Building, Nature Activities, Performing Arts, and more.   

Greenvale Day Camp is an outdoor camp for campers ages 4 1/2 -15. It is  held at Greenvale Park, 2260 New Hackensack Rd./Route 376.  
We offer six weekly sessions beginning Tuesday, July 5, 2022. You can register for all six weeks or just the weeks you would like. Each week will have a different weekly theme for your children to enjoy. 

Camp hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Extended care hours are available from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

We have specially designed activities for teens, also referred to as a "Senior Camper" activities for campers who are 12.5 and older. The activities will include some of our basic program areas (Sports, Science, Weekly Theme and Brain Games) as well as activities geared towards learning and practicing other life skills. This will include job preparation skills, money management skills, and basic first aid/CPR. Participants will also work as "buddies" with our younger campers for part of the day.


Our staff is carefully
selected, trained, and motivated to offer the best camp experience for your child.  The Staff to Camper ratio is 1:5.

There is no rainy day location, camp takes place outdoors rain or shine.

OPTIONAL CIT TRAINING PROGRAM

CIT PROGRAM TRAINING FOR 15 YEAR OLDS only
JR. CIT PROGRAM TRAINING FOR 14 YEAR OLDS only

If you have a child who is 14 or 15 years old, they can register for camp at a discounted rate and take part in our Counselor in Training (CIT) program. A CIT and Jr. CIT will act as an assistant to the Camp Counselors while being trained to become a counselor at the age of 16. This is a rewarding position for those who like to work with children. Being a camp counselor, starting at age 16, is a great experience and it is a position they can come back to once they are in college and returning home for summer employment. The CIT program is designed for campers who want to become counselors at age 16. The CIT and Jr. CIT program is not an employment position nor is it a guarantee of future employment. 

CITs can choose one of two sessions or both sessions. Sessions are:

July 5 - July 22
July 25 - August 12

Select only the session(s) that are designated for CITs. You do not need to choose the weekly dates listed for campers. 

CITs and Jr. CITs must fill out all of the forms and submit immunization records.
