Pierce Country Day Camp

Pierce is America’s first and finest day camp, proud to be in its fourth generation of hands-on family leadership. Located just outside NYC on 27 lush acres on Long Island, Pierce boasts the best camper-to-counselor ratio in day camping; 7 age-specific pools (including an indoor pool and water park); unparalleled sports, arts, and adventure facilities; and its own bus company.

Pierce's mission is short and sweet: Children First! The dynamic program emphasizes personal growth, friendship, and fun while providing experiences that build self-confidence, life skills, and cherished memories. The staff pours incredible energy into every aspect of camp; to them, camp isn’t a job, it’s a way of life. It has been their passion, pledge, and purpose since 1918. Door-to-door transportation is provided from Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens with weekend service to the Hamptons.
