Since 1902, Surprise Lake Camp has provided a haven for Jewish children in the picturesque mountains of Cold Spring, NY. What makes SLC the best is the beauty of the site, the richness of the people and the program, the sense of history and tradition, and the magic we create when the whole thing comes together.

Our program is filled with camp favorites like soccer, volleyball, ropes courses, a zip line, basketball, tennis, gaga, floor hockey and more. We also have more creative opportunities, such as extensive arts & crafts, drama, music, dance, photography, Israeli Culture and more!

Our beautiful pool and waterfront program offers Red Cross swim instruction, swim teams, sailing, canoeing, row boating, kayaking, windsurfing, and aqua-jump water trampolines.

We have delicious kosher food service, two kinds of Shabbat services, fun & engaging Jewish activities, and a unique Bar/Bat Mitzvah program for those who never had the chance to have one.

Surprise Lake Camp has 2, 4, 6 and 8 week sessions which vary based on age. For campers who are considering a sleep away experience for a future season but aren’t sure if they are ready, we offer a 5-day Get Your Feet Wetsm program in August for first time campers entering grades 1-5.

Surprise Lake Camp has a sliding fee scale based on family income and size and we offer $1,000 discounts to most first time campers.
