2021 Summer Day Camp Program

2021 Summer Day Camp Program

Welcome back to the new and improved Village of West Haverstraw’s Summer Day Camp! We are very excited that camp is about to begin in just a few short months and as always, we are anxious to welcome back your child(ren) and provide a fun and safe atmosphere.

This year, the Village of West Haverstraw and the Rockland County YMCA are teaming up to provide an enjoyable, safe setting, for children ages 5-13 of West Haverstraw residents only, to develop skills, self-confidence, new friendships and a sense of belonging - all while having tons of fun, under the supervision of trained YMCA Staff. Our season starts on Monday, June 28th and ends on Friday, August 20th. Our new camp hours are from 8 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. daily!

The 2021 day camp fee is $150.00 per week, per child, and as usual, a daily lunch option is available and included with registration. Unfortunately, transportation and daily trips will not be included this camp season due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Please note:  Due to the July 4th holiday being observed on Monday, July 5th, Day Camp will be closed.  The cost for Week 2 (July 5-9) will be $120.00.

Our new, improved day camp will include:

  • Fun-filled daily events involving themed weeks, arts & crafts and various sporting activities ~ all enjoyed here at our Community Center and Peck’s Pond Recreational Facilities
  • Instead of a six (6) week program, we have extended camp for eight (8) weeks
  • Our hours of operation have also been extended from 10am-3pm to 8am-6pm
  • Supervision of trained YMCA staff

The West Haverstraw/YMCA Summer Camp program is an affordable childcare option for Village residents.  Please note that swim lessons and pool-time at Bowline Point Park will continue and be integrated into the weekly schedules.

Once you have decided which week(s) to register your child(ren), please bring payment (cash or check) to Village Hall along with 2 proofs of your residency!! Our office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. to receive registrations and payment. For your convenience, we will also hold open registrations on Thursday, June 10th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 12th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.. (If attending open house, please bring a current hard copy of your child(ren)’s physical and immunization records). For new campers, payment and registration needs to be received and completed one week prior to their start date. There will be no exceptions!

Please note the first week of camp registration must be completed by June 15th 2021.

Once payment has been received, you will be given a flyer with a QR scan code to start the online registration process and then you will receive an invitation link to our ePACT portal where you will upload your child’s immunizations and sign all waivers prior to your camper’s first day. Orientation packets with more information on camp schedules and other important information will be sent out to you via email by June 1, 2021.

We look forward to a safe and exciting summer filled with fun, friendship and adventure.  Thank you for choosing us to provide the best day camp experience for your child(ren).  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact John Dillon, YMCA Youth Program/Camp Director, at (845) 643-3072 and/or Michelle Craffey or Olivia D’Amelio at Village Hall (845) 947-2800.
