Beth El Day Camp has been the summer place to be for young children since 1951. Widely recognized as the best-in-class day camp in Westchester, Beth El remains the most fun, most trusted choice for young campers and their parents, year after year.

Children from ages 2-7 love the sports, swimming in the pool, music, arts & crafts, singing, dancing, nature, storytelling, yoga, karate, and much more!

Proudly accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), we are also known for its nurturing environment, cutting-edge programming, and commitment to safety. We have the county’s finest, best-trained professional staff, and a very favorable child/staff ratio. 

Whether this is your child’s first camp experience or not, at Beth El everything begins with love and ends in fun. Don’t wait too long to sign up – spots fill up quickly. For an appointment or questions, please contact Julie Rockowitz, Director at (914) 235-2700, ext. 256 or
