Camp Hillcroft, est. 1950, offers 400 boys and girls, ages 4-14, a friendly, fun-filled community experience in a day format with residential facilities for staff. Located east of Poughkeepsie, two hours north of New York City.

Hillcroft’s studios, workshops, playing fields, waterfront, outdoor adventure facilities, and farm provide an exceptional array of age appropriate program experiences for the beginner and accomplished. Long regarded as a caring community with an honest respect for children’s concerns and feelings, Hillcroft continues to be a very special place for children and adults.

150 teachers, coaches, graduate and college students make up Camp Hillcroft’s staff. We employ “instructors” who teach specific programs and “counselors” who help the children in their group to negotiate their day in camp.

A good portion of staff return each season. It is one of the few day camps in the US that has a residential staff of 60+ people living at the camp which encourages interest from across the United States, and other countries.

All enjoy the children and the busy five day format. All are energized by ending at 5:30pm and enjoying weekends off to explore the Northeast.
