A typical day at the sleepaway camp starts with a wake-up call at 7 am. Breakfast is at 8 am and the first class starts at 9 am. After three activity sessions, campers enjoy lunch and free time before the afternoon activities kick off at 1 pm.

Campers may continue to participate in club activities after 5 pm, with dinner at 6 pm. Lights-out and quiet time starts at 9:30 pm to ensure campers to have at least 9 hours of sleep.

Sleepaway campers will be trained for life skills such as personal hygiene, organization, time management, and money management. The Northern Academy school counselor and school nurses participate in educating camp students on physical and mental health.

Campers are expected to maintain personal hygiene, and to clean their own bedrooms, bathrooms, and common dorm areas. They may also cook under supervision.

We organize weekend shopping, as well as educational field trips for Sleepaway campers.

We do not provide airport pick-up service. Please see our list of recommended independent drivers alongside suggested pick-up procedures. Parents should select the service that best suits their needs and contact the driver directly to make arrangements.

We recommend for campers to travel to Newark airport in New Jersey. JFK airport may be an alternative choice if no suitable flight is available to Newark airport.
