Camp Veritans was founded in the 1950’s and its mission is to provide an environment where campers build self-esteem while making friendships and lifelong memories.

“Camp Veritans is a family-oriented day camp,” says Director Carla Rudow. “We are located on 60-plus beautiful, wooded acres with plenty of room to spread out. Everyone is considered a part of our CV family, not just the campers but the families, too.”


Camp Veritans believes that campers thrive in a caring environment. The staff here guide campers in a calm and structured manner and the work they do is truly a labor of love.

This full-service day camp provides everything from daily transportation to hot catered lunches and snacks. Campers participate in daily Red Cross instructional swim as well as a variety of fun activities including sports, arts & crafts, archery, go carts, woodworking, ropes & challenge course, cooking, drama, gymnastics, free swim, game center and more.


Each day at Camp Veritans consists of eight periods and campers rotate through their activities so there’s never a dull moment. Every day is different, but campers can always count on having two swim periods and of course an amazing catered lunch. Whether they are 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 for the next summer.Safety is a top priority at Camp Veritans. After a COVID-free 2021 season, the camp will continue to ensure that camp is a fun and safe experience for all. Parents and campers say the amazing camp staff is what really makes Camp Veritans a special place to spend the summer.

All staff references are checked in addition to criminal background searches and interviews with the Camp Director. Prior to the start of camp, all staff members attend extensive staff training sessions. “Most of our counselors have moved up the ranks over the years from campers to CIT to counselors,” says Rudow, which show just how “in the family” Camp Veritans truly is.

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 2022 are June 27-August 18 (camp is closed July 4).
