Mont Lawn Camp Summer Staff


Situated in the Poconos Region of Pennsylvania is a 200-acre summertime haven for children from New York City's most underserved neighborhoods. With a legacy dating back to 1894, Mont Lawn Camp creates new opportunities for youth facing barriers to success.


Due to the emergence of the coronavirus (COVID-19), The Bowery Mission had to quickly come to extremely difficult decisions regarding Mont Lawn Camp. After nationwide school closings, and health and travel restrictions expected to stretch into the summer, continuing the operation of in-person children’s programming is no longer feasible at this time. Mont Lawn Camp has been temporarily suspended for this summer. The Bowery Mission plans to reinstate this program next summer, as it has been core to the Mission’s work since 1894.



Our campers have numerous new experiences like swimming, boating, rock-climbing and camping—all in the context of the close attention and loving support of our caring staff throughout each week-long session.

Since 1894, the purpose of Mont Lawn Camp has been the same: to give New York City's children a break from the city and to help them grow and change in a safe environment. After their camp experience, the children return home refreshed, renewed and possessing newfound confidence and character. Our hope is that campers will encounter Jesus in a life-transforming way and will stay connected through year-round programs in New York City through Mont Lawn City Camp.
