CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Skylemar was founded in 1948 by Lee Horowitz and Herb Blumenfeld. Summer camp brought them together, with Lee serving as Herb’s counselor. From that moment on, as they say, “the rest is history”. An enduring, 60-year friendship was formed, and with it, a committed desire to create an environment which would foster, nurture, and cultivate the same type of life-long relationship that they had experienced.

Herb and Lee set the standard for comradeship. They developed boys of character through a sports-oriented program which emphasized kindness. Their formula was magical: Bring young boys together with collegiate role models in a pristine location, offer outstanding instruction and team play, and focus on lifetime lessons of compassion, friendship, independence, leadership and appreciation.

Today, Directors Shep and Arleen Shepherd (Lee's Daughter) are completely committed to each individual camper. Along with Assistant Director George Simeon and the Senior Staff of teachers and coaches, they never lose sight of the fact that parents have entrusted Skylemar with their most precious possession. The leadership team of Skylemar does everything in their power to see that each child has a safe, fun and wholesome summer experience.

Giving a child the opportunity to experience sleepaway camp is one of the most influential gifts a parent can bestow. No doubt, it’s a tremendous leap of faith to entrust your son to others. At Skylemar, we cherish the honor of a summer with your child, and do everything we possibly can to give him a safe, great experience of a lifetime. Each summer, boys from across the U.S. and abroad become life-long friends at Skylemar. Our spirit of friendship and kindness connects everyone at camp. Camp Skylemar is an ACA accredited camp.
