Camp Snowflake serves as a recreational and social meeting place for approximately 38 campers during the school year.

Snowflake Camper Information

Camp Snowflake Camper Info

Interested Campers should contact Camp today for more information on enrolling in the program. Campers at Camp Snowflake are afforded the same opportunities for recreational and social activities as those at Camp Sunshine in the summer, albeit on a smaller scale given our meeting time of once per week. Saturday afternoons are spent updating old friends about the past week, enjoying the outdoors at the County Park, and traveling to new and exciting places on our monthly field trips. Campers receive the same one-to-one attention as at Camp Sunshine.

Campers are enrolled for the entire season, running from the second or third Saturday in September through the end of May. Campers are not required to also be enrolled in Camp Sunshine in order to enroll at Camp Snowflake.

Snowflake Volunteers Information

Camp Snowflake is a similar program to our summer camp, with its reliance on one-to-one attention and its adapted activities. "Snowflake" meets once per week, on Saturday afternoons from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M., from Sep 18, 2021, through May 7, 2022, except for holidays. Volunteers should arrive by 12:45 P.M. Camp Snowflake serves as a recreational and social meeting place for our campers during the school year. Activities include arts & crafts activities, adapted games, and monthly trips to places such the Bronx Zoo, local bowling alleys, movie theaters, Liberty Science Center, Van Saun Zoological Park, and Minor League Baseball Games.

As a volunteer counselor, you will be a friend to one of our campers for the afternoon, sharing their lives and letting them share yours. The biggest and best responsibility of our volunteer counselors is the encouragement they can offer our campers and the patience to listen to and understand their ideas. All you need to be an effective counselor is your enthusiasm to try something new and to meet new people who will bring as much joy to your life as you will to theirs.

New volunteers

New volunteers should plan to arrive by 12:30 P.M. on their first day. You can speak to any one of the Snowflake Staff members who will gladly give you an orientation to the program. You can download a volunteer application and bring it with you on your first day. Be sure to check the News & Events page to see what the activities will be for an upcoming Saturday. Camp Snowflake also frequently hosts groups of volunteers from local schools, churches, and other community service organizations.

Please feel free to contact us to set up group volunteering sessions. We can be reached by Email at campsunsnow@gmail.com or by phone at 201-652-1755.
