Buckley Day Camp offers families a connection-focused program. Each camper ends his/her time at camp feeling more connected to one another, our staff and the overall camp community. Located in Roslyn, NY in Nassau County (just 19 miles from New York City!), Buckley is committed to enriching the lives of children through our three guiding principles of Knowledge, Friendship and Fun.
Programs that grow with our campers: Parent & Child Program (18-30 months) is a great first experience at camp! It gives parents and children the ability to experience all that camp has to offer. Junior Camp (entering Nursery-Kindergarten) is the perfect introductory program for our youngest campers. We believe that camp is the ideal place for children to become exposed to all areas of the camp, including sports, arts, swim and enrichment; Intermediate & Senior Camp (entering Grades 1-7) give campers the ability to tailor their program with workshops (specialized instruction from professionals in the community); Teen Program (entering Grades 8-9) which combines leadership development, camp activities and weekly trips around Long Island and New York City. CIT program (entering Grades 10-11), gives teens the ability to gain valuable work experience, while participating in teen specific activities.
Led by a Leadership Team with over 100 years of experience in camping and education, we know that there is nothing that inspires children more than a transformative camp experience. Working with a dedicated, professional and well-trained staff, our goal is to help children find success in each area of camp.
We put our families first! Our Leadership Team and Administrative Staff are always available before, during and after camp to make sure that the needs of each family are met. Throughout the summer, we provide regular communication from personal phone calls and emails that let you know how your child’s experience is at camp.
Our extensive outdoor & indoor facilities are the ideal setting for a quality day camp experience in all kinds of weather. Click here to learn more about our amazing campus.
