Camp Kiwi is a summer day camp in Mahopac, NY serving Westchester and Putnam counties. Camp Kiwi was founded in 1952 by Lou and H. Bellotto. Now in our 59th year Kiwi remains family owned and operated. Kiwi is for campers ages 2 to 15. We offer both a traditional 5 day a week program as well as a mini-camp program of 3 days. Our campus consists of 20+ manicured acres with a beautiful 2 acre pond with white sandy beach, 4 heated pools, multiple tennis courts, sport fields, 18 hole miniature golf course, state-of-the-art batting cages, ropes course (with zip-lines), climbing wall and much, much more.
Age 2 are coed groups of 10 with 3 staff members. Ages 3-5 are coed groups of 12 with 3 staff members. Starting at age 6, boys are separated from the girls. Ages 6-7 have 15-18 in a group with 3 staff members. Ages 8-13 are still boys separated from girls with 12 in a group and 1 staff member. CIT's are 14 & 15 year olds and have a training program part of the day and follow a fun-filled schedule for the other part of the day. In addition to group leaders, Kiwi also has activity specialists. Thus, making the ratio 4:1. Kiwi staff is comprised of college students, teachers, parents, coaches and artists.
We never rest on our past laurels. Today we are as eager to please as we were in 1952! We invite you to explore our site, learn about our new 2-year old program, all new sports program and other great activities. Have a Kiwi Day.
