Summer is the season of imagination, creativity, laughter, and play. It is also the ideal time for children to take risks that build confidence, develop skills, and enhance learning.
At Camp Léman, we are experts at making summers both meaningful and memorable. As Lower Manhattan's premier day camp, we provide all you need to make your child's summer an unforgettable experience.
• Campers enjoy instructional swim in our on-site pool.
• Our action-packed program includes various sports in our gymnasium; outdoor play on our private rooftop and in neighborhood parks; varied specialty activities such as live animal shows, cooking, science, visual and performing arts, martial arts, and more!
• Each group is led by a certified teacher who supervises experienced, energetic staff. Early childhood groups are overseen by staff trained in the unique needs of our youngest campers.
• Our chefs prepare fresh, nutritious lunches daily for all campers.
• Our on-site nurse helps keep our community safe and ensures adherence to all COVID and other health and safety guidelines.

Campers enjoy swim in our heated indoor pool with low teacher-to-camper ratios. From teaching beginners the basics to developing advanced skills for experienced swimmers, we always ensure safety and enjoyment in the pool.
Our incredibly varied specialty activities are taught by educators, artists, and other professionals in their areas. Our Head Counselors are certified teachers selected for their creativity and versatility. Days are filled with sports and outdoor play; art, science and cooking projects; group games and activities designed to challenge campers physically and intellectually. In addition to our rooftop playground, we plan to utilize nearby parks, plazas, and other interesting sites within easy walking distance of camp to add excitement to campers’ days. No two days are the same at Camp Léman!
Our athletics program takes full advantage of our 4,600-square-foot gym. Campers enjoy instruction and play in varied sports including soccer, tennis, basketball, gym games, and more! Our non-competitive approach encourages participation for all while providing challenges to more skilled athletes. A repertoire of safely distanced games and athletics activities will be utilized as necessary.
Hands-on activities ensure that children are always engaged in educational fun. We create an environment that encourages children to take risks and leave their comfort zone as they explore new areas and develop interests. We offer the perfect mix of learning and joy to ensure that camp is always a truly beneficial experience. We also know that many children have been learning remotely this school year, and our staff will be prepared to reengage children in the social, classroom environment and make all campers feel comfortable.
Our age-based groups of around 15 campers are led by a Head Counselor who is a certified teacher, assisted by other skilled and highly experienced staff. We focus on group dynamics in a supportive and nurturing environment to make all campers included, unique and valued members of the community. Campers come from a wide variety of public and private schools throughout Manhattan and Brownstone Brooklyn. All are welcome at Camp Léman.
Campers return each summer to build on their experiences at Camp Léman. Theme weeks, special events, unique outings, our Little Buddies-Big Buddies program, incredible staff, and the full use of Léman Manhattan's state-of-the-art facilities all contribute to making each summer a success for your child!

Léman Manhattan successfully reopened for in-person learning in September 2020 and has maintained a healthy community of staff and students. Our year-round staff has developed a variety of protocols around health monitoring, upgraded our ventilation systems and cleaning regimen, and developed a variety of modifications to the flow of people around our school. Our Camp Nurse will monitor the community’s health, and staff and campers are strongly encouraged to be up to date on COVID vaccination.
