Woodmont Day Camp
At Woodmont, we promote our core values of Kindness, Confidence, and Respect every day. We strongly believe in teaching our campers the importance of helping others and the benefit of giving back.
Woodmont is proud to partner with Project Morry, a comprehensive, year-round youth development organization dedicated to empowering children from under-resourced communities to create a positive future. Founded in 1995, it was inspired by the vision of camping world hero, Morry Stein, who recognized the long-term positive impact camping has on the lives of young people and wanted to share that with all children regardless of economic status.
Project Morry’s nine-year commitment to each child closes the opportunity gap through a combination of academic enrichment and support, leadership development, an exceptional summer camp experience, and one-on-one mentoring. Youth participate free of charge.
Each summer, our campers participate in our annual Project Morry Swim-a-Thon to raise funds in support of Project Morry and Morry’s Camp. Campers will bring home a certificate indicating the number of laps they swam.We suggest that you sponsor your child “per lap.” All donations should be made payable to Project Morry and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Project Morry is funded 100% by donations from individuals, foundations, and corporations. Woodmont is one of 40 proud Camps that Give in the Northeast, which collectively raised almost $200,000 last year. Woodmont Campers raised over $8,600 in 2018!
Thank you for supporting Project Morry!

Kids that Give
We love that many of the young campers who participate in Camps that Give over the summer are inspired to continue fundraising back in their communities. Through individual acts of kindness and group efforts, our youngest contributors come up with creative ways to support Project Morry, including lemonade stands, swim team events, clubs at school, and asking friends and family to donate in celebration of their bar and bat mitzvahs. It is a great way to get your community involved, have fun and make a difference
