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 to Mont Lawn through our year-round city-based programs.
