Welcome to Knox School Summer Adventures!

Dear Camp Families,

It is hard to believe that yet another summer has come to a bittersweet close! I want to thank all of our new families for giving Knox Summer Adventures the chance to make your children’s summer the best it’s ever been. At the same time, we are so appreciative to our returning families, who year-after-year, support us and trust us with their children.

This summer, as a special thank you, we are extending a “Rate-Saver Registration” offer to all of our 2014 camp families.  Submit a $500 deposit to the camp office before October 1, 2014 and we will freeze your current rate for Summer 2015!   Rates are slated to increase after October 1 and again by March 1, 2015 so we encourage you to take advantage of this special offer.


As a BONUS to our rate saver registration, we are offering a “STRESS BUSTER” Payment Plan bonus!  You can choose to have your credit card automatically charged on the 1st or 15th of each month, for 5 months of easy payments.  Simply fill out the enclosed registration form and return it to us with your deposit NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 1, 2014 to freeze your rate. Please review the terms and conditions on the form, especially the payment deadlines and due dates, to which we will strictly adhere. You can also complete the process online by using our website – www.knoxschool.org/summer.


Once again, it has been an amazing summer here at Knox, and we hope you will join us next summer! Your recommendation is our best form of advertising, so tell your friends and family about the camp everyone is talking about!!

Summer Adventures at the Knox School is Long Island’s best kept camp secret! Located in St. James on the shores of Stony Brook Harbor, our picturesque, waterfront campus is on 48 rolling acres where kids from grades K through 10 can get away from the stress of the school year and enjoy good, old-fashioned fun in the great outdoors! Run by parents and educators who empathize with the demands placed on today’s families, Knox offers flexible scheduling so you can pick and choose the days and/or weeks that are best for your child to attend camp. To accommodate the working parent, our before and after care program begins at 7 a.m. and runs until 6 p.m., and is fully staffed by adult professionals.

Regularly scheduled camp offerings include:Kayaking and Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) right off our waterfront property, swimming lessons with American Red Cross Certified Instructors, Chess & Games facilitated by an official Tournament Director and Chess Coach, Marine Science, Musical Theater, Fine Arts, Tennis, Volleyball, Gaga Ball, Ultimate Badminton, Hockey, Basketball, Field and Fitness Games, and more!

We cater to ‘tweens and teens with our Shark and Barracuda Travel Program and state-of-the-art Teen Rec Center.
