OUR KIDS DAY CAMP
The Children's Day Camp Experts!
Our Kids Day Camp has been operating for over 25 years, with the same owners/directors! Mike and Helen Hoffmann are the owners/directors/care takers of Our Kids Day Camp. They are involved in the day to day activities with the campers and staff. The property of Our Kids is perfect for a children’s day camp. It is on 113 acres of private property dedicated to ONLY campers and staff. We were the only camp in Sullivan County to open the first summer of Covid and this is mainly due to our facility. We were confident we could give our campers a safe summer because we are on private property and never share our facilities with outside groups. We have many fields, hiking trails, courts and pavilions so our camper groups were able to be properly spaced out. We are tucked away from main roads and traffic. We always felt that a children's camp should be set in the outdoors and in a safe environment, without outsiders coming in to use the facilities. We are happy that we have been offering the experience of camp to children for over 25years.
Our Kids Day Camp is the perfect setting for a children's camp. We have 2 nature trails, one is a 45 minute hike and the other is about 20 minutes. We have a small lake, where we canoe. We have 2 heated pools, many fields, pavilions and indoor space. We have more than enough space for our campers to play and not be crowded onto 1 field. We are always outdoors having a fun time, unless it is pouring rain! Then we have rainy day activities.
When parents send their children to Our Kids, many return year after year, until it’s time to be a Leader in Training and then a Counselor. Over our years, we have welcomed so many families into Our Kids Day Camp. It becomes a second home for many, and they return to take walks and reminisce and eventually send their children to Our Kids.
Whether our staff is returning or new to Our Kids, everyone has to attend our 2 day staff orientation. During orientation the staff is educated about working with children, parents, how our program works, we learn about each other and how to work as a team for the summer and to provide a safe and fun environment for our campers. Our lifeguards are trained by Helen, who is an Instructor for the American Red Cross.
