Summer Trails is the premier day camp for children ages 3-14. We are a day camp that has been designed, built and run since 1974 with the mission of providing each child with an exciting camp community. Located in Northern Westchester County, Summer Trails provides an environment in which children can grow, discover, build confidence, and develop emotional intelligence.

Campers take their invaluable summer experiences, memories and friendships made at Summer Trails Day Camp with them into adulthood. They then return as staff to help create these memorable opportunities for the next generation of campers.
