Join Our 2024


At Purchase Day Camp, we believe the people make the program for our low-key, non-competitive summer camp. We look for TEAM Members who can bring their unique personalities to serve as role models for our campers and build summer memories. TEAM stands for TALENT, ENERGY, ATTITUDE, & MOTIVATION. Spend the summer outside playing while gaining valuable skills that will make you the ideal candidate for future employers.

Jennifer Delancey Agro

"Working at camp taught me so much about being a part of a team and how to work with others towards a mutual goal (the camper's best interest,) organization, creativity, and an insight into child development which became the foundation for my career in education. Above all, working at PDC gave me an incredible work ethic and taught me how to pursue my passions with perseverance and integrity. Purchase gave me lifelong friendships and an invaluable support system of friends and mentors! I am forever grateful for my summers at Purchase Day Camp."
