Palisades Country Day Camp (PCDC) was built and designed exclusively for the young child; the campers’ ages start at 21 months, known as “Tiny Tots,” through age eight, known as “Senior Campers.” Owner Richard Hubschman is excited to be celebrating another magical year.

Conveniently located close to New York City and accessible to all of Bergen County, PCDC is home to seasoned camp professionals and educators with extensive early childhood experience. “Some of the things that set us apart are that we are ACA-accredited, have beautiful campgrounds for campers to enjoy and a welcoming, nurturing staff who return year after year,” says Niki Livanis, the camp’s enrollment coordinator.

PCDC is known for its outstanding swim program. American Red Crosscertified lifeguards teach the campers aquatic basic skills and water safety while helping more experienced campers build upon their previous aquatic abilities and master new skills—and all while improving self-confidence and building self-empowerment.

Each camper enjoys swimming twice daily in our heated pools. Every morning campers receive age- and skill-appropriate swim lessons and in the afternoon they can enjoy recreational swim and an aquatic splash park. The camp’s other offerings include theme days, arts and crafts, ceramics, sports and music. Enrichment programs for the senior campers include cooking, science, LEGOs, robotics/coding, dance and woodworking.

“We are a close-knit camp community, building strong connections with one another and establishing lifelong friendships,” Livanis says. “Many of our campers return years later as counselors to spread the PCDC magic.”
