Camp Kinderland Inc New York City

Camp Kinderland is a multicultural summer camp and community that honors our progressive secular Jewish roots through our commitment to economic, racial, and social justice. Kinderland’s summer programming and year around activities integrate progressive values with arts, recreation, and activism in a compassionate and caring environment.

Founded in 1923 by Jewish activists as a retreat for their children from the tenements of NYC, Camp Kinderland is true to the vision of its founders. In a difficult world, we are an oasis for children ages 8 to 16; a place where they can be themselves, feel at ease, and work and play in an atmosphere of cooperation and trust.

Camp Kinderland is not an ordinary summer camp, although much of what we do are ordinary summer camp things. What makes Kinderland distinctive is its history of progressive politics and its heritage of secular Jewish traditions and its legacy of promoting social activism. These are our foundations. Yet over time, we have changed and changed again, working out how best to balance our heritage with our present goals.
