JUNE 25 - AUGUST 24, 2018 914-967-6363 ryeycamp.org


WHAT’S UNIQUE ABOUT A RYE Y SUMMER? OUR COMMITMENT: At Rye Y camps, the social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development of all youth are nurtured and celebrated, resulting in the BEST SUMMER EVER!

POSITIVE ROLE MODELS Dedicated Staff

Rye Y camps are led by a team of full-time, qualified professional directors. Our passionate and dedicated summer staff is selected for their strong character, maturity, enthusiasm and commitment to our Y values and serve as Professional Role Models for our campers. We pride ourselves on our staff retention and look forward to their return year after year.

ACA Accredited

The Rye Y camps are accredited by the American Camping Association. Every year, our programs must meet over 300 ACA health, safety and program quality standards in order to maintain our accreditation.

Counselor-to-Camper Ratios

At the Rye Y, we feel that the quality of our programs and success of your campers relies on low counselorto-camper ratios. As an ACA accredited camp, we follow strict ratio policies based on camper’s ages: Ages 3-4 : Ages 4-6: Ages 7-9: Ages 10 & older:

1: 4 (counselor to camper) 1:6 1:8 1:10

Discovery Campers enjoy a packed week full of fun activities that keep them engaged and active. Our age-appropriate programs allow our campers to grow as they progress in new skills and activities. Our positive reinforcement system promotes the Y core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Campers receive a necklace on their first day of camp with beads corresponding to their camp group and swim level. Every Friday, each group participates in a bead ceremony where individual campers are awarded with specific beads for their necklace based on their positive behavior and accomplishments during the week.

We safely bus all Discovery Campers to the Rye Y to participate in swim lessons daily with a structured recreational swim on Fridays. Instruction is provided through our certified aquatics staff and our trained camp staff. Campers are evaluated on their first day of camp and are placed into the appropriate swim level for their age group. They will have the opportunity to progress through the levels as their abilities improve throughout the summer.

Each week we have a new theme to accompany the activities, projects and events we hold at Discovery Camp. From time travel to spending a week under the sea, our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and engaging environment where our campers learn through DISCOVERY! Pioneers, Scouts, Trailblazers, and Pathfinders go on weekly field trips to an exciting regional destination. Examples of trip destinations include interactive children’s museums, amusement parks and much more! Our Explorers group does not go on field trips, instead, each week, we have a special activity or special guest. On Fridays, we have an ALL CAMP SPECIAL EVENT! From live concerts to circus performances, we do our best to provide a memorable summer experience for our campers.
