What we're all about...

Surprise Lake Camp stands for more than just great fun. Since 1902, we have helped young people grow and develop. Our campers come away with better skills for getting along with others, greater independence, enhanced self-esteem, stronger Jewish identities, heightened environmental awareness, and a fuller sense of creative potential. Surprise Lake Camp is a coed sleepaway camp located just 60 miles from New York City. We have a sliding fee scale based on family size and income and is proud of its long history of providing scholarships to families in need. Retreats & conferences accepted.
