Oratam Day Camp is canceled for the 2020 summer. Other camps may still be enrolling children for the summer. We invite you to browse our other camps at YMCA of Greater Bergen County.

A Traditional Day Camp Experience

Day Camp Oratam offers a well-rounded YMCA camp experience allowing campers to discover and explore their interests, values, and talents in a structured and nurturing environment. Through supportive encouragement offered by our counselors, campers have an opportunity to experience self-confidence, a sense of pride, and accomplishment.

Day Camp Oratam is located in Harriman State Park, NY, on Lake Kanawauke.  The camp site was previously operated as a sleepaway camp by the YWCA of Greater Bergen County.

A Place For Kids To Grow

At Day Camp, our campers have the opportunity to acquire, practice, and perfect valuable skills including problem-solving, teamwork, and making healthy and safe choices.  Each fun-filled day, campers are led in arts & crafts, sports & games, nature activities, boating, and swimming. Campers swim twice daily receiving a swim lesson each day by our certified instructors along with time for free swim.

Fun and Enriching Camp Activities

Camp-wide special activities occur throughout the summer including color war, camp games, and camp talent show.

Optional overnights at camp take place once each session for campers ages 9-12 where campers have a cook-out, participate in a night hike or carnival night, and sleep in cabins to receive a taste of the overnight experience. Campers’ days are filled with playing, socializing, exploring, and experimenting in the company of friends and counselors.
