The Grossman day is all about having fun! It’s the fun of being able to try just about every sport and aquatic activity imaginable. It’s the fun of exploring art, music, drama and nature. And it’s the fun that comes from being part of a wonderful community bursting with camp spirit.

Grossman is the best camp ever! I count the days until I get to come back.

There’s Something for Everyone at Grossman!

We strive to provide both an exciting array of activities and an encouraging atmosphere. This combination helps children feel confident trying new things, tackling new challenges and developing new skills. Our goal is for every child to leave camp with a strong sense of accomplishment.

During the summer, we expose our younger campers to a wide variety of age-appropriate activities and instruction so they can discover what they like to do most. As campers mature and develop their own unique interests, they get to exercise more choice in their schedule through electives.

All campers receive Red Cross-approved instructional swim and participate in free swim under the supervision of lifeguards and trained instructors.
