Woodmont's Philosophy

About Woodmont Day Camp

Welcome to Woodmont

Our core values of Kindness, Confidence and Respect are integral parts to both our philosophy and program. Campers and staff promote these values daily with team building activities, bracelets catching campers "doing something good" and discussions about what it means to be kind, confident and respectful. Camp is an opportunity not to just work on swimming, sports and arts but on ways to become better people. At Woodmont we make this happen every day.


At Woodmont Day Camp each camper feels the warmth and comfort of home. The Woodmont experience provides a dynamic program in an environment which fosters growth and independence for every child.

The relationships that children form with each other and with our staff provide the foundation for the Woodmont experience. It is through these relationships that our campers can learn about themselves and others.

Sending a child to camp is a tremendous act of faith by parents. At Woodmont, we take that responsibility very seriously and maintain an environment that encourages both safety and health and reinforces a positive self-image. We aim to provide campers with opportunities for emotional and physical growth, encourage their natural abilities and instill in them the benefits of participating in a group.

Our ultimate goal is to provide an enjoyable, exciting summer experience that motivates our campers to approach the future with courage, confidence and a feeling of self-worth.

We create a warm, family feeling at Woodmont in a number of ways. We encourage continuous skill development throughout the summer; stress personal development no matter what the inherent ability of a camper may be; and lastly, work to create an atmosphere of attention and care for the individual.

Our breath-taking waterfall welcomes you to our 50 acres of beautiful woodlands, streams, trails and open space. Woodmont offers campers an unforgettable camp experience in a country setting unrivaled in its natural surroundings. We are ideally located 1/4 of a mile from exit 11 on the Palisades Interstate Parkway, just 25 minutes from Manhattan, 20 minutes from Westchester and 15 minutes from Northern New Jersey.

Woodmont is a place where everyone feels welcome and as a part of our extended family. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the Woodmont family.
