We have bus locations throughout the city as our campgrounds are in Rockland County, just north of the city. All bus sites open for drop-off at 8:00 am and you will have until 5:45 pm for pick-up. (The only camp that does not go to these campgrounds is our teen travel camp called Trailblazers.)

Yomi campers participate in a wide variety of activities including: two swims per day (one instructional swim and one free swim), all the sports you can imagine, and an impressive array of creative activities. Additionally, all our activities are designed to be age specific to properly foster the social and emotional development of each individual age group. From state-of-the-art facilities and interactive studios to thrill-seeking adventure courses, Yomi provides campers with an extraordinary summer camp experience filled with friends, growth, excitement and countless memories.

Yomi Seniors participate in all the same activities as Yomi campers with added specialties through our Major and Minor programs. Majors are an elective activity that campers get to do two times per week for a double period. Minors are similar, as they also take place two times per week, but these will change from week to week. Another difference is Thursdays are either trip or theme days for Yomi Seniors! Trip locations include: water parks, amusement parks, a rafting and camping trip and the much-anticipated Hershey Park and more! The last week at camp is spent on a 5-day, 4-night sleepaway experience on the grounds of a sleepaway camp in the Poconos!

Ilanot is our Israeli/Hebrew Immersion summer day camp for campers K – 4th grades. Our staff is comprised of young Israelis in their early 20s selected in partnership with the Jewish Agency for Israel, as well as local Israeli-American staff, and professional Israeli specialists, from artists to Krav Maga instructors. As part of our summer curriculum, our staff infuses campers’ daily schedule with Israeli themes, games, songs and culture! You can also sign up to host a shaliach/shlicha for two or more weeks over the summer, bringing the Israeliness into your home!

Trailblazers is our teen trip and travel program. Three days each week, campers go on day trips throughout the tristate area to beaches, museums, amusement and waterparks, adventure courses, environmental centers, and for service projects. The other two days, they develop Majors and Minors at 92Y, working on projects in Culinary Arts, Media Madness (photography and filmmaking), Entrepreneurship, Sports and Fitness, and Coding. Trailblazers also has a week at Club Getaway and will explore a city for their last week of camp.

Campers eat healthy foods made from scratch

Elective program; Campers love the idea of creating their day based on their interests! Whether they want to cook, make art, hike, swim, lift weights, play sports against other camps, or join a circus show, our schedule let’s them choose! See all our options here.

Some of our campers want to have an active summer without playing sports all summer. Because we offer so many fitness electives, they can dance, run, swim, zen out in yoga, hike, train in martial arts, lift weights, perform in circus, and choose from countless other options without having to play team sports.

Other campers love sports and want to build skills and play games in a laid-back environment that isn’t overly competitive. Since it’s all about electives, they can do that too! We offer soccer, basketball, baseball/softball, volleyball and tennis. We also play against other camps all around us!

Many of our campers are aspiring chefs and love to cook! With three teaching kitchens in the coming summer, they’ll be able to gain cooking skills and make some amazing dishes. To see everything our young chefs made in culinary arts last summer, check out our latest cookbook.
