This lakeside day camp at the base of the Ramapo Mountains celebrates its 60th anniversary this summer, welcoming kids back for weeks of alfresco playtime. Daytime events cover all the bases: There are tons of traditional and offbeat sports on offer, from volleyball and lacrosse to cricket and gaga, plus arts programs, including favorites like theater, dance, woodshop, culinary classes and plenty of crafting sessions (think tie-dye and lanyards). Campers splash around in the six heated pools during swimming instruction and in the natural lake during water sports, and there’s no shortage of other outdoor activities either. With access to a 30-foot climbing wall, two zip lines, bumper boats, a horse stable, nature garden and beyond, they have something new to tackle each day. Ages 3–15.
