Town of Wallkill Day Camp

Summer Day Camps

Welcome Campers!

The Boys & Girls Clubs have operated the Town of Wallkill Summer Day Camp for more than 20 years in the beautiful C. Hudson Thompson Memorial Park, more commonly referred to as Circleville Park, in Circleville, NY.

For eight weeks each summer we provide daily activities, ranging from traditional sports like tennis, soccer, basketball, and baseball to arts & crafts, “Game Zone,” and “Ultimate Journey,” a hiking and exploring program that takes full advantage of all the park has to offer. The lake provides us the opportunity to offer boating, fishing, free swim, and instructional swim daily.

We host a Junior Camp for children in Grades K-2 & Main Camp for children in Grades 3-9.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided free of charge through the Summer Nutrition Program in partnership with the Pine Bush Central School District. A menu will be provided to the campers on a weekly basis.

Camp operates in four, two-week sessions held Monday through Friday, 9am - 3pm.

We also offer Before Camp programming from 6-9am and After Camp programming from 3pm-6pm daily at an additional cost.

For campers not taking part in Before or After Camp, parents will be able to drop off beginning at 8:4am and all campers MUST be picked up by 3:15pm. Campers WILL NOT be permitted to walk home or remain in the park unsupervised after 3:15pm.

Registration MUST be done online. A link to our online registration can be found below. Registration opens on April 1st!
