Great things can be achieved when you combine resources and create an outstanding team. The merging of the Samuel Field Y and Central Queens Y can only translate into a bigger and better summer camp program.

Summer is a time to be outdoors, experiencing new adventures and creating lifetime memories! What makes our day camp so special that the same campers return to us year after year, and then again as counselors! We’re proud to say it’s our reputation for the exceptional personal involvement of every staff member with each camper and our strong commitment to Jewish values that makes a summer at  Commonpoint Queens Day Camp a truly unforgettable summer camp experience.
