Deerkill Day Camp
Deerkill Day Camp, celebrating 55 years in the Rhodes family, is an ACA-accredited day camp located on 15 beautiful acres in Suffern, NY. We have an extremely mature staff and our superb swimming, athletics and specialty programs are taught by professionals. Transportation, lunch, trips, towels, and weekend pool club are all included. Deerkill brings a community feel to the summer camp experience for campers age 3 through 14.
Deerkill offers children a chance to pick up a new sport or hobby, learn to swim and form lifelong friendships this summer. The diverse program includes professional swim instruction in large heated pools, an array of athletics on fields sized for younger and older children, creative and performing arts such as arts and crafts, ceramics, woodworking, dance, theater, and digital photography, and specialties such as karate and nature, among other activities.
Deerkill offers daily transportation on mini air-conditioned buses, staffed with professional drivers and bus counselors. The Directors are on the camp grounds everyday and accessible by phone by day and night. All the individual group leaders are adults, many of whom are teachers.
All campers may register for 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 weeks. New campers may also register for 2 weeks. For those campers registered for 5, 6, or 7 weeks, parents may choose any weeks throughout the summer.
With the exception of horseback riding, an optional elective, there are no extra charges at Deerkill. We do not allow tipping, a large expense at many camps, and we include the following:
• Family weekend pool club at no additional cost. Every Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 plus July 4th.
