Specialty Camps

The single-gender environment offered for girls at Amity Acres Day Camp, creates an inclusive, safe space in which girls are free to explore their potential and take the lead without the distractions or pressures that can be found in a coed environment. For each of these programs, girls spend half their day specializing in an area that’s their passion. During the remainder of the camp day, they participate in traditional camp activities.
