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 excitement of exploring art, music, drama and nature. And it’s the joy 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, our younger campers experience 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 daily instructional swim and participate in free swim under the supervision of lifeguards and trained instructors.

At Camp Grossman we recognize and celebrate each camper’s unique needs. Grossman has been committed to serving children with different abilities for more than 35 years. Our inclusive Pathways program is child-centered, and is tailored to the specific abilities and interests of each camper. Children with mild to moderate disabilities are fully integrated whenever possible while some campers benefit from bunks where the camper-counselor ratio is 3:1 in order to provide the support necessary for success at camp. Our Pathways 3:1 program is under the supervision of highly qualified staff. If you feel your child may be better served within the Pathways 3:1 program, please indicate this information on the camp application.
