Dear Camp Yomi Parents,
On Tuesday, July 17 we will be hosting our Units K, 1 and 2 Family Visiting Evening at camp. Visiting Evening is always special as it is an opportunity to meet your child’s counselors, join the group for an activity period and find out what has made Camp Yomi such an amazing and unforgettable experience. Please bring a picnic dinner. We will provide a cold drink and dessert.
All visitors traveling by our Academy Buses should assemble on 3rd Avenue at 91st Street (around the corner from the 92nd Street Y) between 3:45pm and 4:00pm. We will begin the boarding process at 3:50pm and our last bus will depart from 3rd Avenue at 4:05pm. Parent buses will depart from the Campgrounds beginning at 6:45pm. If you are driving you should plan to arrive at 5:00pm (the drive is approximately 20 minutes from the George Washington Bridge in light traffic). The GPS address for the campground is 44 Henry Kaufmann Rd. Orangeburg, NY 10962. Please be aware if you arrive before 5:00pm, you will need to wait in the parking lot as campers and staff will still be preparing for your arrival. Directions to the campgrounds are included below.
Please respond to this e-mail or e-mail campmail@92Y.org and let us know if you’ll be joining us this evening and if your camper should remain at camp. Please include your child’s name, unit, and your plans for July 17 in the e-mail. If you have another child from Units 3 or 4 other 92nd Street Y Camp this summer that you would like to have stay with their sibling, please e-mail campmail@92Y.org and let them know. If you are driving, please bring a photo ID to get into the campgrounds. If someone other than you or your child’s legal guardian will be attending, please email their name to have them placed on the security list.
As an alternative, your child can return at the regular time to their usual bus stop, just email campmail@92Y.org to let us know. Please email us by Monday, July 11th at 5:00pm. If your situation changes between the time that you contact us and the event, please inform your camper’s Unit Supervisor at 212.415.5643 regarding the changes.
If you have any questions concerning visiting evening, please feel free to contact us at the Camp Office at 212.415.5573 or e-mail Anna (Unit K Supervisor) email@example.com , Julie (Unit 1 Supervisor) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sarah (Unit 2 Supervisor) at email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you at the campgrounds on Tuesday, July 17.
