Each CRU campus has a unique calendar displaying camp events, themes, trips and traditions for the entire summer.
In addition to our jam-packed daily schedule, campers can look forward to a variety of entertaining activities, including Color War, Talent Show, Crazy Hat Day, Pinewood Derby, Wild ‘n Wacky Challenge, Shades’ BIG Shindig and much more.
As part of our regularly scheduled activities, all campers travel to our off-campus swimming and bowling venues twice per week for six weeks during the summer.
Off-campus trips are planned precisely for each camper division to enhance the overall camp experience at various venues throughout Long Island. Look for your camper division indicator to discover where you’ll be headed this summer.
The Camps ‘R’ Us Parent Guide, or “Everything You Need to Know About CRU (aka Camps ‘R’ Us) Before This Summer,” is an 8-page document that contains all the camp basics (i.e. the stuff you NEED to know). From arrival to dismissal, and for everything that happens during the camp day, the Parent Guide has you covered.
Plus, about one week prior to opening day, you’ll receive your campus’ supplemental guide, which is part of the welcome letter package sent via mail. This document will explain things as they pertain specifically to your campus. Topics may include drop off and pickup points, a campus map, policy updates and schedule revisions.
Camps ‘R’ Us’ elite teen trip and travel program, the Voyagers, provides 7th, 8th and 9th grade campers with the experience of a lifetime as they find themselves facing new and exhilarating experiences every day.
Itineraries are tentative, and may be changed based on venue availability and weather. Please consult Ian Hipschman, our Voyagers Director, for more information at (516) 554-3544.
All forms and documents for your family can be found in your CampInTouch account. Here, you’ll find the camper application, health history, immunization records and more! Most forms are unique to each camper (they have a specific bar code), so we can track everyone’s forms when they arrive at our office.
