Camp Hillard, Scarsdale, New York Day Camp

About Camp Hillard


Since starting Camp Hillard, Westchester's first day camp, the Libman family has been providing children with active, safe, and memorable summers. Camp Hillard was founded in 1929 by Morris and Hannah Libman. The Libman family has continued to own and operate Westchester's first day camp and its tradition of excellence spans four generations of single family ownership.


Over the years we have developed a total program which is carefully scheduled so that campers have the full benefit of outstanding swimming and sports, balanced with high-quality creative and performing arts, specialty activities, as well as exciting special events. Our program is led by an experienced staff of camping professionals working together to ensure a successful summer for each and every camper.


Carefully selected staff are mature, caring, and well-organized, and groups are kept small so that children receive the individual attention they need to thrive. Camp is led by a team of 30 key staff members we call our Leadership Team. They are composed of the finest team of teachers, educators and leaders in the field of camping. Their primary goal is to make sure your child has the best summer ever!


Impeccably maintained and constantly improved, Camp Hillard offers a complete program that uniquely combines spirit, tradition, and fun with first-class modern facilities. Our beautiful 20 acre camp, located in Scarsdale in southern Westchester, is hidden away atop one of the highest and coolest spots in the area. Our location makes us an easy ride for campers anywhere in the Metropolitan area. Our Facilities and Beautiful Fields are kept in top-notch condition by our year-round maintenance staff.
