The Gerald J. Ryan Summer Camp at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church in Wyandanch has served the community for over thirty years.  We enroll 100+ children in Grades 1 - 6.  The campers take part in camp activities for five weeks during late June and July, Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.

The camp's enrollment includes a registration fee which helps cover many expenses that the Ryan Center must incur to run a successful and well-organized camp.  We employ teenagers from the local community as camp counselors and teachers. Activities include: reading, writing, & math enrichment each morning; swimming at a local town pool; arts / crafts; sports & recreation; computer lab; and field trips to places like the Long Island Children’s Museum, White Post Farm, Bowling, Movies, Roller Skating and Adventureland.

To help keep children off the streets when school is closed, to enrich their lives with friendships, learning, fun competition, unique experiences and memories that may last a lifetime.....please consider "Adopt a Camper" next summer. Please contact  Camp Director, Naycha Florival at (631) 643-3364, starting the first day of Spring, 2017.
