Wagon Road Camp runs an Adventure Team Building program during the academic year for school groups. The purpose of the program is to help groups of youth build relationships, develop team work, and experience challenge in a context of support and encouragement.

Home Camp, The Dunlevy Milbank Center urban summer camp, promises all-day adventure for children ages 5-14.

Respite Services provide year round programming at the camp for developmentally-delayed children. The purpose of this program is two-fold: to support and strengthen the families; and to enrich the lives of these children.

Wagon Road Camp is available for school groups to plan overnights. On our 52 acre facility, we have overnight accommodations for 86 people, a large dining hall, indoor facilities for small group meetings, fields for recreation, and trails to explore the natural environment. Overnights can be scheduled from September to June. Since our buildings are winterized, we operate right through the winter.

The Children's Aid Society's Wagon Road Camp is located on 53 beautiful wooded acres in Chappaqua, New York, about 35 miles north of New York City. Our wide range of activities is designed to emphasize creativity, skill development and social learning.

Each year, Project Adventure, Inc. runs workshops at Wagon Road Camp to train professionals in the use of adventure games, initiatives, low and high ropes course elements.

The Center provides two one-week basketball camps.

The Frederick Douglass Center offers its own camp for children ages 5-11. Also available is 7:45 a.m. daily pick-up for the Children's Aid country day camps at Wagon Road Camp in Westchester and William Osborn Day Camp on Staten Island.

The Children’s Aid Society believes that summer provides children with an important opportunity to play, learn new skills, meet new friends and be exposed to the world outside their community. That's why the East Harlem Center hosts four different programs: Home Camp, Bridge Camp, Wagon Road Camp and Alvin Ailey Dance Camp. All Camp Programs utilize project-based learning and theme curriculums to enhance the summer learning opportunities.
