Since 1902, Surprise Lake Camp has provided a haven for Jewish children in the picturesque mountains of Cold Spring, NY. What makes SLC the best is the beauty of the site, the richness of the people and the program, the sense of history and tradition, and the magic we create when the whole thing comes together.
Our program is filled with camp favorites like soccer, volleyball, ropes courses, a zip line, basketball, tennis, gaga, floor hockey and more. We also have more creative opportunities, such as extensive arts & crafts, drama, music, dance, photography, Israeli Culture and more!
Our waterfront program offers Red Cross swim instruction, swim teams, sailing, canoeing, row boating, kayaking, windsurfing, and aqua-jump water trampolines.
We have delicious kosher food service, two kinds of Shabbat services, fun & engaging Jewish activities, and a unique Bar/Bat Mitzvah program for those who never had the chance to have one.
Surprise Lake Camp has a sliding fee scale based on family income and size
