LONG ISLAND'S LOST DAY CAMPS
A Salute to Long Island Day Camps
That Are no Longer Open
Do you have fond memories of going to a
summer day camp on Long Island? What do you remember about the sights and sounds
and the people at that camp? Is that day camp you remember so fondly now
If you answered yes to any of these
questions, then this web page is for you. Welcome to my salute to Long Island
summer day camps that have closed. My focus will be primarily on summer day
camps that were open on Long Island since World War II and which catered to
Baby Boom generation children.
WARNING: Because I attended day camp during the 1970s, many of my personal
memories will be rooted in that decade; therefore, there will be a particular
emphasis on the "lost" day camps of the 1970s and 1980s. For example,
do you remember these places: Eagle Neptune, Creative, Paul Bunyan, Holiday
Day Camp, Frontier Day Camp, Hill and Dale of Dix Hills, Timburr Lane,
Trailblazer Day Camp, Camp NYABIC, Treasure Island of Oceanside, Fort Salonga
Country Day Camp, Tom Sawyer, Young Travelers, Sunrise, Bar-H Ranch Day Camp of
Oceanside, Green Hill Country Day Camp of Woodbury, South Country Day Camp,
Suffolk Day Camp, Camp Monchatea, or others?

NOTE--FEBRUARY 2000: I have a spin-off forum via Delphi for you to share
some of your memories of going to no longer open Long Island day camps. To
check out the forum, click here.
If you went to the camps mentioned above or to other defunct Long Island
day camps, or if you are a former director or counselor at one of these camps
who may be able to offer a history, please e-mail your stories to either firstname.lastname@example.org
As of June 28, 2003
<![endif]>I have recently received e-mail from Mr. Fred
Kleiner, who wants to organize a reunion for all those who attended the
Holiday Day Camp during the 1960s and early 1970s. For more information, please e-mail him at email@example.com. Thank you.
Thank you, and please come again as
over the next few weeks I continue to fill this site with Long Island Day Camp
