Founded in the 1950s, Camp Veritans provides an environment where campers can build self-esteem while making friendships and lifelong memories. A family-oriented day camp, Camp Veritans is located on more than 60 beautiful, wooded acres. 

“Everyone is considered a part of our CV family—not just the campers, but their families,” says Director Carla Rudow. “We’re seeing generations of families now who are enjoying a summer camp experience with us, and we think that’s really special.”


The full-service day camp provides everything from daily transportation to hot catered lunches and snacks. Each day at Camp Veritans consists of eight periods, with campers rotating through their activities. 

Campers participate in daily Red Cross instructional swim as well as sports, arts and crafts, archery, go carts, woodworking, ropes and challenge course, cooking, drama, gymnastics, free swim, game center and more. 

The camp is looking forward to bringing back programming like game trucks as well as trips, with the oldest campers participating in three trips per week. “We’re all looking forward to returning to a normal summer camp experience, with trips and other new and exciting programs,” Rudow says.


Whether they’re shooting hoops, splashing around in the pool or practicing for their weekly bus competition on the way to camp, kids have the time of their lives and can’t wait to return the following summer. Both parents and campers say the dedicated, passionate camp staff is what makes Camp Veritans such a special place to spend the summer.

“Our families know when they put their child on that bus in the morning, they are going to be safe and happy,” she says. “They may come home tired, and a little dirty, but they’ll be filled with memories that will last a lifetime.”

Daily transportation to and from camp plus lunches and snacks are included in camp tuition. Campers can attend for four, five or six weeks or the full summer. Camp dates for 2023 are June 26-August 17 (camp is closed July 4).

“This is truly a special place for kids to grow; I’ve seen kids start camp not being able to make eye contact with anyone to becoming leaders in their groups,” Rudow says. “But above all, campers have fun outdoors without electronics, and they thrive in a safe, nurturing environment where they can just enjoy being kids.”
