Camp Updates

November 9, 2020

Dear Purchase Day Camp Family Members,

We missed having camp last summer, but the safety of our entire camp community is always our primary focus. With that said, I am happy to inform you that 2021 camp applications are now available online. This has been a difficult year for all of us. I am looking forward to 2021 hoping that it brings positive change for everyone.

Although we did not have camp last year, camp begins in about 230 days and we are preparing now. Our preschool program is currently open as is our afterschool program. We are following all CDC and NY State guidelines including enhanced cleaning and sanitizing. We are performing entry screenings, wearing masks and maintaining social distance whenever possible. Obviously, recreation programs, by definition, cannot keep six feet of distance at all times but we do that at lunch and snack and when moving from place to place and any other times possible. We are very confident in our ability to provide a safe and appropriate program for children during this pandemic.

Camp will be different in 2021. In particular, the group sizes will be smaller. This means limited spaces for new campers. I encourage you to register as soon as possible. A link to online registration is below or you can call the office at 914-949-2636 and request a paper application. We would love to hear from you.

If you are unsure of your weeks or program, send me an email at with your questions. I will give you guidance on how to complete the registration form.

I thank you again for your confidence in all of us at Purchase Day Camp. Like you, we cannot wait for summer and a return to our activities, traditions and special events. If you have any questions whatsoever, do not hesitate to call me at 914-949-2636.

P.S. Check out our Camp Birthday Listing on our main page. Be on the lookout when it is your special day!
