Camp Kinder Ring

Hopewell Junction, NY


Camp Kinder Ring is an overnight camp for boys and girls ages 7 to 16 that provides all land and water activities, opportunities for artistic expression and outdoor adventure.  Located in the beautiful Hudson Valley area just 60 miles from NYC, we offer 3, 4 or 7 week sessions.

Camp Kinder Ring, filled with Friendship, Love and Spirit, has been welcoming children for 90 years.  Nestled in the Hudson Valley, in Hopewell Junction, New York on more than 100 acres of pristine property overlooking beautiful Sylvan Lake, Camp Kinder Ring boasts tremendous facilities, programming, and staff.  It offers the ultimate well-rounded sleepaway camp experience for boys and girls ages seven through sixteen.  From the moment each camper and his/her family steps through our gate, they become part of our family. 


Although camp life is structured, Camp Kinder Ring has found the perfect balance of scheduled activities and elective opportunities to obtain increased exposure and enrichment in areas of greater interest.  We focus daily activities on helping children to develop and grow. Camp Kinder Ring is proud of the variety of programming offered to expose children to a wide array of activities – including an impressive athletic program, a magnificent waterfront program including a heated swimming pool and exciting lake activities, offerings in performing and creative arts, an outdoor adventure center and ropes course, Jewish culture programming, and an amazing trip program for older campers – and so much more.  The facilities at Camp Kinder Ring, indoor and out, allow for full uninterrupted programming, day or night, rain or shine.  The Health Center is staffed 24/7 by a team of nurses and a doctor and is prepared to meet varied medical and dietary needs.  Led by Director Dr. Marc Rauch, a licensed Child Psychologist, our staff is carefully selected and undergoes intensive training throughout the year.  Our return rate of campers and staff is amongst the top in the industry and many of our staff has been with us throughout their lives.


Camp Kinder Ring is accredited by the American Camp Association, is a member of the Foundation for Jewish Camp, and is a participant in several innovative programs of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.

We hold tours of our facility throughout the year and our senior staff holds open houses throughout the area. Open houses are already scheduled in several locations around the tri-state area, so contact us to reserve a spot or to schedule a personal tour or home visit.
