Surprise Lake Camp is a coed sleepaway camp located just 60 miles from New York City. SLC stands for more than just great fun. Since 1902, we have helped young people to grow and develop. Our campers come away with better skills for getting along with others, greater independence, enhanced self-esteem, stronger Jewish identities, heightened environmental awareness, and a fuller sense of their creative potential.

Surprise Lake strives to give Jews from a wide range of backgrounds life-enhancing experiences that emphasize the joy and values of Judaism and that instill a greater appreciation of and pride in their Jewish identities. This is done through fun, interesting, meaningful cultural activities, through rituals that are comfortable and understandable, through a spiritual appreciation of the natural world, through establishing a relationship with the State of Israel, and through nurturing an ongoing connection with the camp community.
