Camp Jump-in

WELCOME

Welcome to Camp Jump-in NYC. Whether you are considering us for your camp needs or the traditional day camp experience, summer camp at the Jump-in is filled with fun, adventure, excitement and new friends. Our camp program is based on family values: friendship, honesty, respect, responsibility, kindness and Love. We strive to nurture all of our campers in a challenging and supportive environment where their safety and well-being are top priority.  Camp Jump-In is directed by professional mentors and staff that are dedicated and dynamic leaders. They were carefully chosen due to their maturity, patience and vast experience in working with children.


Nontraditional Camp

Our camp is perfect for campers who want to experience all aspects of the camp day including activities such as recreational sports, arts and crafts, music, dance, drama, fitness fun and of course, swimming. Campers learn valuable health and nutrition habits, as well as leadership and team building skills. We strive to impact each child, so intimate settings of 50 campers separated by age groups helps us to focus on that goal. 


YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY

The safety of every child is always our highest priority at Camp Jump-in. All staff is CPR and First Aid certified and trained to ensure a safe and secure environment for every camper and every camp Mentor. 


Enrichment Focused Day Camp

Our camp is a program focused camp where we provide traditional day camp activities. Our schedule consists of Enrichment in the mornings and Camp Activities in the afternoon. 


Summer Learning 

Summer learning is key and crucial to the retention of academic achievements reached during the school year. According to recent research, two thirds of the achievement gap between lower and higher income youth can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities. Most low income students lose two months of grade level equivalency in math skills and reading achievement over the summer months. To target these statistics, Camp Jump-in invests 4 hours of Enrichment into our daily schedule 4 days a week!


Splash-Splish

Camp Jump-in has always been known for its outstanding aquatics program. Many camps offer pool water fun, but at Camp Jump-in we offer 60 min of swim classes. All water activities are carefully supervised by trained, certified lifeguards and swim instructors. Swimming at camp Jump-in is a tradition your child will surely enjoy!


Family Involvement 

We at Camp Jump-in provide opportunities for family members to get involved in their camper’s summertime fun. Families are invited to camp to participate in activities like Camp trips, Beach cook-out, Pep Rally (what’s camp without the songs?) and Game Day. In these moments family members get to meet camp staff, their child’s new camp friends and learn about the entire Jump-in company.
