Golden Slipper Camp
Every summer, over 500 children ages 7 to 15 and approximately 100 professionally trained staff, converge on Golden Slipper Camp’s 600 wooded acres in the beautiful Pocono Mountains to experience the most memorable summer imaginable. Together, our campers and staff make Golden Slipper Camp a unique place which is fun and exciting for everyone.
GSC has it all, including basketball, soccer and lacrosse, biking and skateboarding, boating on our lake and swimming in our pool, climbing wall, archery and ax throwing, campouts, art and STEM, and so much more! There really is something for everyone to enjoy during each fun-filled day and evening. In all, there are over 30 different activities held at Slipper, and each one is better than the last!
All of this in an affordable package for all!
Golden Slipper Camp provides children the opportunity to attend one, or both of our 3 ½ week sessions throughout the summer. (Late June to mid-July with a few days break before our late July to mid-August session). Our registration process is easy and can be found by clicking our register button below.
If you have any questions about the process, please contact our Enrollment Coordinator Kristin Grapes and she will be able to assist you with the application and any financial needs you may have. We offer scholarships and there are several Jewish philanthropies that also support our camp and our families that could make it even easier for your child to experience the best camp in the Poconos!
Why Golden Slipper?
Golden Slipper Camp has been promoting teamwork and the personal growth of our campers since 1948. Our campers have fun and enjoy engaging in the spirit of camp simply by being themselves. The camp program is rooted in Jewish values. Our campers and staff are an inclusive group that creates a supportive and fun community. Our campers grow together as they benefit from all that Golden Slipper has to offer. Golden Slipper fosters lifelong friendships that remain invaluable long after each summer is over.
It’s an atmosphere of fun, adventure, friendship, and inspiration that “lets kids be kids.” For some, it’s their first time being away from home. For others, it’s a rare opportunity to experience nature, or learn new sports and crafts. Whatever their background, each day at Golden Slipper Camp becomes a lasting part of kids’ lives, making them want to return to camp summer after summer!
Golden Slipper Camp enriches the lives of children and young adults from varied backgrounds by providing five essential components:
