    Camp activities take place inside and outdoors across the SUNY Maritime College campus, boat basin, on the East River and Long Island Sound.

    Waterfront Adventure Camp is led by industry professionals with more than 75 years of combined experience managing waterfront programming. Camp directors, instructors, lifeguards, counselors and counselors-in-training are specially trained and certified to deliver safe, fun and enriching activities for youth.

    Our campers return year after year for fun and adventure, and to learn new skills. Whether attending with school mates, or trying out activities for the first time with new friends, our focus is on safety and education. Campers come from all over Bronx, Westchester, Manhattan and Long Island to join in the fun!

    Campers are grouped by age and sometimes skill-level at the discretion of staff. Campers may "request a friend" during registration while we also encourage camaraderie and relationship building.

    No boating or sailing experience required! 

    All activities are suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced skill levels. Swimming is supervised by lifeguards, but we do not offer formal swimming lessons during the camp day.
