Summer Camp for Campers

Each year Cradle Beach strives to serve nearly 800 campers during the summer camp sessions. Each session can accommodate up to 175 campers.

Although boys and girls are separated by cabins during the daytime, everyone plays, eats and attends activities together.

Everyone at camp has the same opportunity to get the full camper experience no matter their background. In fact, that's what makes Cradle Beach so unique. We're one of the few camps in the United States to integrate campers with and without disabilities and include kids from low-income backgrounds. Almost no one is turned away from Cradle Beach because of their individual characteristics.

For more information, or to request an application, please call Robin Barone, Admissions Coordinator at (716) 549-6307 Ext. 205 or e-mail
