Lavner Camps ~ Award-Winning Summer Camps where YOUR child can thrive!

At Lavner Camps, campers can attend 1 or more weeks of camp during the summer.  Campers participate in one camp each week, and specialize in an area of interest for the entire week!  This allows campers to fully immerse themselves in the subject matter of the camp, improve skill sets, and create awesome projects, all while learning from talented instructors (we hire less than 8% of applicants) in a camp environment that offers a 1:8 staff to camper ratio or better!  We also allow for plenty of socialization and outdoor time during snack and recess.  Combining lots of education and fun, an investment in this amazing camp experience is an investment in YOUR child.  And yes… campers can attend the same camp for multiple weeks… as they move up in our curriculum!  Campers may also attend different camps over the span of multiple weeks.  We provide lots of great camp options each week, allowing YOU to create an optimal schedule for your child!  If you would like our assistance in planning, we are always happy to help!  Just call our camp specialists at (646) 308-1555 or email [email protected]
