Camp Twelve Trails

Ages 5-16

Camp Twelve Trails™, our unique and innovative new camp, which opened Summer 2016, combines the best of specialty camp and contemporary day camp. Each week, campers will craft their own experiences from among five program Neighborhoods: Play (sports & fitness), Create (arts & drama). Explore (outdoor adventure), Discover (science & technology), and Grow (farm to table). Focus on one Neighborhood the whole summer or mix it up each week and try a little of everything; the choice belongs to every camper!
We combined forces with The JCC on the Hudson and The YM-YWHA of Washington Heights & Inwood to have this ground-breaking summer experience. Our newly-renovated facilities at the bucolic Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds in Pearl River, New York, just a short 45-minute bus ride away, are sure to impress. The staff you already know and love, together with new experts and specialists, make our camp a nurturing and inclusive program full of surprise and wonder.
