About the Program
The Anne Shore Sleep-Away Camp Program offers 9- to 15-year-old children a wide range of summer sleep-away camps throughout the Northeast. The 1199SEIU/Employer Child Care Corporation administers the Anne Shore Program, enabling parents to select the best camp experience for their child. Diverse offerings include camps that emphasize athletics, fine arts, technology and outdoor adventure, as well as traditional camp experiences that provide a wide variety of activities. All participating camps are independently owned and operated and are accredited by the American Camp Association. Camps for children with special needs are also available.

Sleep-away camp can be an intimidating transition for both parents and children. For many families, it’s the first time children are away from home. Camp gives children the opportunity to enhance their physical, intellectual, emotional and social skills. In turn, these skills help promote independence and self-confidence. The Anne Shore Sleep-Away Camp Program provides informational resources for parents, such as a Guide to Handling Homesickness, to aid in the transition.
Additionally, Anne Shore’s Online Camp Fair, hosted each fall, and Online Parent Seminar, hosted each winter, educate families about the various camp program options. At the Online Camp Fair and Online Parent Seminar, 1199SEIU members can have their questions answered directly by representatives from the camp providers and the American Camp Association, as well as Anne Shore Program staff. These events allow families to gain a better understanding of the unique summer experience that camp offers.
