“My children think Camp Alvernia is the best place on earth!”
“According to my children, every day is ‘10 out of 10’. The little one told me ‘the dirtier I am, the better the day’. As the one who does the laundry I can tell you (with a grin) that she must have had a fabulous day every day.”

Every Day is 10 out of 10 at Our Kids Day Camp.

I can tell you that this was my son's best summer camping, and his first time staying 8 weeks at Alvernia only. He started talking about returning next summer about halfway in, and when he is a happy camper Mommy is a happy camper! :)
My son was cared for in a way that I do not think could be matched at another camp. Camp was a constant source of happiness for my son, he came home with positive stories everyday. Even when he had a tough day he still came home with something he learned. We cannot express our gratitude.

“Every year my son likes it better. It is truly a wonderful camp with a warm and inviting staff. Thank you for a great summer!”
Camp Alvernia Parent
“Camp Alvernia was terrific and the fact that my son wants to return next year is testimony to this fact. Keep up the good work!”
I like the fact that my son stays active and outdoors in the summertime. This camp provides a 'Classic' camp experience that is not like any other on Long Island. You are helping to shape respectful little ladies and gentlemen!
“I believe this was our 6th or 7th year and my son loves it. As a working parent it is wonderful to know that he is having a great time with lots of summer fun.”
“She enjoyed it very much with the only complaint being that it ended too fast.”

“Summer Day Camp Counselors are Caring and Committed”
The staff is so well-trained! They are so engaged with the children at all times. I have found all of the counselors to be very caring and committed to making every day a camp a great one! Whatever you're doing in terms of hiring/training is working….don't change a thing!
“My daughter loved camp and wanted to go for another session. She was so upset the day she had to miss camp because she was sick. I would never think of sending her to another camp.”
“Fantastic! My son is forever changed for the better because of the experience. I can’t thank the staff enough :)”
“Camp Alvernia is a place that my children love and I know they will cherish the memories from this past summer!”
Both of our children really enjoy the relationships they have with your staff members. They speak fondly of them and it's quite apparent that they look up to the staff members. I didn't realize how special Camp Alvernia is until my children went to tennis camp later in the summer and complained about the other campers being rude and saying bad words. They explained that it's so much better at Camp Alvernia because people don't act like that there. It made us really appreciate the special culture that exists at Camp Alvernia where everyone is respectful and the staffers know that they are role models and regardless of their age, take that responsibility seriously.
“We absolutely loved the experience! The staff were professional and well managed”
Camp Alvernia Father
“Not only do we love Alvernia, we need Alvernia. We require childcare every day, and I don’t know what we’d do without camp. Alvernia has become an essential part of my childrens’ community — they have a circle of camp friends that they see for playdates or around town throughout the year. This year has brought many challenging changes to our lives and Alvernia helps our children to feel rooted. My husband and I are thankful that we can send them to Camp Alvernia.”
“Very positive 1st time full-day camp. Definitely wants to go back next summer for more sessions.”
Camp Alvernia is a Great Way to Start Your Day
“When dropping off my daughter in the morning I think it’s great how everyone waves Good Morning to us parents – It’s a great way to start your day!!!”
“I continue to be impressed by the positive attitudes of all of the camp staff. Their excitement and professionalism radiate throughout the camp.”
“Our boys LOVE Alvernia! Just the right mix of activities, sports, etc. They come home every day tired and happy. Our boys have tough academic schedules during the year – to see them enjoying themselves so much at camp is fantastic!”
It was my three daughters' first ever camp experience. I sent them because I had gone back to work (lucky for me!) and needed day care. I had a little bit of trepidation because they didn't know anyone and my two elder daughters are rather shy. They all had a wonderful time.
“Day Camp is a Wonderful Experience at Alvernia”
“Excellent! My daughter had a wonderful experience. The counselors are wonderful and we are very impressed with how well run the camp is. Thank you for a wonderful 2 weeks.”
