Camp Henry Day Camp, named one of the city's best summer camps by Time Out New York Kids, offers a wide range of educational and recreational enrichment activities for children ages 5 to 13. Campers enjoy daily activities such as arts and crafts, music, drama, sports and swimming. The campers have trips around New York City and the tri-state area. All programming and trips are based on camp themes, which for Summer 2016 is "Journey Through Time".

Staffed by a team of committed counselors and instructors, many of whom serve as Group Leaders in our After-School Programs during the school year, Camp Henry fosters self-esteem, respect for others and an appreciation of the arts. The camp is licensed by the Department of Health and accredited by the American Camping Association.

Camp Henry runs for seven weeks from July 5 – August 19th. Discounts are offered to returning campers, campers' siblings, and to those who refer a friend. Financial aid is available on a sliding scale for eligible families. Early drop-off and late pick-up are available for an additional fee.
