Gate Hill Day Camp, which is beloved by countless NYC families and known for its caring environment, amazing programs, and state-of-the-art facility, recently made the difficult decision to postpone their traditional camp program until Summer 2021.
Gate Hill's owners and directors Josh and Ali Male, who also happen to be the parents of 3 very disappointed campers, understand that now more than ever, families are looking for safe ways to enjoy the summer days outdoors. Enter Club Gate Hill! That's right, Gate Hill Day Camp is opening for families this summer! Take a drive up to Gate Hill's beautiful campus to enjoy a day filled with signature camp experiences, access to the sprawling pool complex, and 33 acres of fields, courts, and fun. Private family cabins and contactless family-style camp meals are included, and counselor-run family activities make for a great way to safely enjoy some time at camp. Capacity is limited to 15 bunks a day to ensure safe distancing while you and your family enjoy the property.
The Club Gate Hill experience includes a plethora of activities from which to choose, including art, bingo, dance parties, a junior adventure ropes course, and a climbing tower, all of which will be offered at set times for you and your family to safely enjoy at your leisure. Your bunk will also be scheduled for two periods of swim at the pool complex - once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Of course, when you are not “scheduled” for an activity, you are welcome to enjoy any of the open Gate Hill-led activities and use any of the open fields and courts, as well as hang out in your bunk. Leading up to your visit, you will be contacted by a Gate Hill Program Coordinator to help customize your schedule.
Club Gate Hill will be providing basic, sanitized equipment for you to use during your visit (kickballs, basketballs, bats, hula hoops, etc). If you prefer, you are also welcome to bring your own equipment (labeled with your name, just like camp!)
Individually packed family-style camp lunch is included in your booking, and vegetarian options are available upon request. The Club Gate Hill Snack Shack will also be open with a limited menu during your visit for day-of ordering.
Club Gate Hill will be taking each guest's temperature upon arrival, and anyone with a fever will not be permitted to stay. All cancellations due to a COVID-related issue will receive full refunds, and anyone signed up who has experienced COVID symptoms in the 14 days leading up to their arrival is asked to cancel. Gate Hill has over 33 acres for guests to enjoy, and guests are asked to remain in compliance with all social distance regulations, including remaining 6 feet apart from other guests and having masks with them at all times for when distancing isn't possible. There will be plenty of signs located throughout the property to both provide reminders of the social distancing requirements and to help you safely navigate the property. Pool capacity will be limited and in accordance with DOH guidelines to ensure the safety of all Club Gate Hill guests.
