A FAMILY CAMP Meet The Bertino’s In 1970, Frank and Flo Bertino became the second owners of what was then called Nabby Day Camp—a tribute to founder Abraham Nabatoff. Frank came from Riverdale Country School, in the Bronx, where he served as Athletic Director, head football coach and founder of the school’s very first summer camp. In 1997 the family torch was passed to Joe Bertino, Frank and Flo’s son, to run the day-to-day operations of Camp Nabby. Joe, a retired physical education teacher and swim coach of 35 years, has been dedicated to Camp Nabby ever since. While Joe manages the facilities and staffing, his wife Rita oversees the enrollment and transportation and their son, Matt, helps both of them as an assistant director. In true family tradition, they are joined every summer by sisters Gemma and Maddie and brother-in-law Dave.

Our philosophy is simple: it’s all about the kids!

Why Nabby? Camp Nabby is an 8-week summer day camp designed by professional educators. This means we do everything in our power to create a fun, positive and encouraging environment for the families of northern Westchester. To sum up our summer programs we created a mission statement: we exist to educate and inspire young people and their families to choose healthy, play-filled lives.

Values & Beliefs We stand firmly behind our mission because we believe in the long-term benefits of our program. We believe in creating diverse summer experiences that translate into lessons that last. And we believe that the stories that begin at camp, have the power to influence decisions for years to come.

Education We believe that teaching and learning should bring joy.

Fitness We believe that physical activity is the key to a happy, healthy life.

Laughter We believe that some things, most things, are funny.

Accreditation We’re proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association. ACA Accreditation is the best evidence parents have of a camp’s commitment to a safe and nurturing environment for their children. ACA Accreditation means that your child’s camp cares enough to undergo regular reviews of its operation.

Play We believe that creative, flexible play is overlooked and underrated.


STAFF Counselors & Specialists Our staff is led by two program directors—one for the junior campers, 3-8 yr olds, and one for senior campers, 8-13 yr olds. Under their supervision, each individual camper group is led by a head counselor and a combination of assistant counselors and CITs. In addition we have staff in charge of specialty activities, sports, health, maintenance and dining. In all, there are 110 staff members responsible for making Nabby a special place for our campers. We realize the importance a great staff makes, and we take great pride in hiring the best possible candidates.t

FACILITIES Pools, Courts, Fields & More! The facilities at Camp Nabby are second to none. Spread across 17 acres, we take pride in making the most of our surroundings and providing the very best for our campers. In addition, we look to add something new every camp season to keep things fresh and exciting.


JUNIOR CAMP Kindergarten - 3rd Grade Our Junior Camp Program is designed to keep your child active, stimulated, and safe. Children ages 4 1/2 - 8 1/2 learn about sport skills, form new friendships, and get exposure to a variety of activities. To balance sports and games, our structured weekly schedules include special activities (gymnastics, music, arts and crafts and nature) all taught in covered indoor facilities. Appropriate personal living skills and social interactions will be developed over our eight-week summer, and parents should see growth in their child’s confidence and self-esteem.

Scaled Sports An important feature of Nabby is our scaled to size athletic facilities. These facilities enhance the success of campers’ skills with more hands on participation while creating the ‘real’ feel of the game.

Free Play It is our belief that every child needs some time to engage in a few less structured activities, including imagination playground, spray and play (our mini water park), or just some time on the playground.

Ben had the best summer I think he has ever had. Ben is a high energy child and he just thrives at Nabby , he asked me if they could teach him math and reading so he could go all year. My husband and I marvel at how at the end of each summer at Nabby his confidence swells , Nabby is his happy place. Thanks for another great summer. // Marlena D.


SENIOR CAMP 4th - 8th Grade Senior Camp is a more active, elective day than what is offered in our structured Junior Camp program. The morning is more athletic, with no specials (i.e. Nature, Arts & Crafts, Music). Tennis instruction is also scheduled for each group every morning. Each afternoon campers can choose their own program, including all specials, during interest periods.

Interest Period Every week Senior Campers, ages 8 1/2 - 13, have the opportunity to choose their afternoon activities. They may select a sport or activity for two separate 45-minute periods every afternoon. Senior Campers can challenge themselves to learn a new sport or devote more time to their favorite activity. Interests include all camp specials, team sports, or individual contests such as archery, gymnastics or tennis. These activities are co-ed and are directed by our Senior Camp staff. Also available is a 90-minute period for campers who want to specialize in a more team-oriented sport (i.e basketball, baseball, lacrosse).

Epic Events Every Wenesday afternoon features a special event involving the entire co-ed Senior Camp. Relay races, Capture the Flag, Predator and Prey, and the ever popular Apache Relay, are just a few of our mid-week traditions. There is much excitement and anticipation in striving for these coveted championships—and a place in Camp Nabby history!

I just wanted to first tell you what a wonderful time Kieran and Isabelle had at camp this summer. We were a little nervous to see how Isabelle would do her first year and she didn't skip a beat. Also Elisa and Joe were amazing with the kids. A special shout out to Joe as I watched how engaged he was with the boys and very attentive. // Wen B.


ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS & SCHEDULES The Cubhouse

A co-ed program composed of children 3 1/2 - 41/2 years of age with a specialized schedule specifically designed for the social benefits of the pre-school child. Our qualified staff includes a certified teacher and offers a 4:1 camper to staff ratio. Children swim twice daily in a shallow, child-friendly heated pool where they can feel secure being in the water. The activities for this age group include they can feel secure being in the water. The activities for this age group include our specials—Nature, Music, Arts & Crafts, Gymnastics—taught by our specialty counselors in covered, indoor facilities. Our other activities, including team sports, are all conducted on our fields and courts scaled for age appropriateness. Many of our activities are covered to shelter the campers from overexposure to sun and rain. We provide young children an opportunity to participate in the fun and excitement of the camp experience while promoting their social skills and self-confidence under the supervision of our mature staff.

Schedules All camp groups follow a daily schedule. Most activities are structured in 30-minute intervals. Each group has two swim periods, various ball field activities, and specialized instruction time. Our Junior Campers have more special instruction time than our older campers. Our Senior Campers have a more athletic schedule with tennis added daily and interest periods of their choice in the afternoon. Every group has a period reserved for snack, lunch, and some unstructured free time for improvised activity.

Rainy Days Rainy days are often looked forward to at Camp Nabby. Having 11 separate covered areas, our campers and staff are provided a different, yet still active schedule. A one-hour movie time is balanced with a variety of activities such as dodgeball, mini-golf, hockey, gymnastics and basketball—all conducted under covered areas. Campers stay on campus all day and are kept busy and active. Although it’s possible to get wet while moving from one building to another, we all know this is camp, and it’s just water!

In-Training Programs (LITs & CITs) Both our LIT (14-yr-old) and CIT (15-yr-old) programs are limited in number and open to new applicants. Applications and fees for these programs can be found by registering online. As a past Nabby parent of 2 campers, I am aware of the excellent camper experience you provide. Your reputation has always been known for the exceptional camper experience. I think it’s time you are acknowledged for the amazing experience for counselors as well. As parents you know that we never stop caring for our children...We want them to have fun .. but also learn responsibility, teamwork, and leadership to help them prepare for the future. Working at Nabby has provided all of that and more.You both go above and beyond to make sure the staff knows that they are appreciated and valued. The camaraderie among the staff makes them feel like part of the Nabby family. // Michelle F.
