Choosing a summer camp for your loved one can be a daunting and overwhelming process. We are delighted that you are visiting our site to find out more about our summer camps!
Allow us to introduce ourselves!
AHRC New York City has operated sleepaway summer camps for over 30 years, providing summer camp experiences to over 1,000 individuals and much needed respite to their families. We take pride in our two summer camps and are successfully accredited by the American Camping Association, (ACA). We have annual inspections from the local New York State Department of Health, and the New York City Department of Mental Health and Hygiene. We strive to provide a safe, nurturing and fun environment for all the campers that we serve and involve families and caregivers in this process.
We have several goals for all the people who participate in our summer programs:
- Learn new skills and try new things
- Make new social connections in a supportive environment
- Increased independence
- Provide a great vacation away from routines and over-scheduled lives
- Provide much needed respite for family members
Camp transforms people! Spending time with new peers and staff in a new environment creates a fresh start for everyone and allows for greater growth and independence in a short amount of time.
