Camp Listings 2021
Junior Counselor in Training
For all sessions designated for children 8 and younger, we reserve 2 spaces for children who have both attended Woodland Playhouse and have completed third grade that would like to be a junior counselor in training. A junior counselor position will cost $140 per session. The junior counselors will enjoy a balanced day of self directed play and helping as directed assistants to the camp staff. JCITs will have an opportunity to lead songs and activities for our littlest friends if they so desire. At the end of each session, the child will receive a small gift for all of their hard work.
*If your child is interested, they can bring their bike (with training wheels or without) to be left at an on-site camp for the week. Sometimes our traveling camps may request that families bring bikes for a specific day or days. Helmets are a must! Elbow and knee pads are optional. We have tricycles that suit even our oldest campers so there is no pressure. We will allow only a small number of cyclists on our bike path in the back of the building. Please remember that riding bikes can cause bumps, bruises, and scrapes. If you are uncomfortable with your child riding, we do have the tricycles. Some of our most experienced bicyclists may ride their bikes along our widest nature path.
For all of our camps, campers will need to bring their own lunch. We will provide two nutritious snacks per day. Please pack lunches that do not need to be heated or refrigerated. Thank you.
Please inform us at least three weeks in advance of the start of your child’s camp to receive a 50% refund. Cancellations after this date will receive no refund.
What's an "Off-Site" or "Traveling" Camp?
These camps are often held at a different location than our "on site" camps, which are held at our year-round location on Route 28 in Phoenicia. Sometimes our camps are still held at the 28 location, but we exclusively spend our time on the 10 acres of land or in the NYS "forever wild" land behind the preschool. Other locations include Glenbrook Park, Kenneth Wilson Campgrounds, the Ashokan Reservoir, private property in Shokan, and The Catskills Visitor Center, to name a few. The exact locations for the week are released to enrolled families in the weeks preceding the camp. At no time will Woodland Playhouse staff transport a camper. Parents or caregivers will drop off their campers at the "off site" location each day, and the camp will remain at that specific location for the entire day. Often times camps will spend time at several different locations throughout the week.
Woodland Playhouse is committed to remaining affordable without sacrificing the quality of care the campers receive.
● We offer sibling discounts, twin discounts, and multi-week sign up discounts. We also offer scholarships or partial scholarships to families in need. Contact us for more information.
● Spaces for children aged between 36 months (3 years) and 12 years will cost $205, $220 or $245 per week for full day camps (see specific camps for more information).
● Spaces for children ages 24 months (2 years) to 36 months (3 years) cost $245 per week. This is so that we may have a smaller counselor to camper ratio for the youngest.
● Junior counselors in training (JCIT) positions cost $140 per week, and the JCTIs will enjoy a balanced day of self directed play and helping as directed assistants to the camp staff.
