Empathatic New York Sleepaway Camp

Our Mission:


We partner with young people to inspire the next generation of radically empathetic decision makers.


Radical Empathy

Building radically empathetic communities through humble curiosity, personal responsibility, restorative practices, and unbounded creativity.

Stomping Ground Manifesto


Embracing Conflict Through:

Restorative Practices


Active peacemaking requires direct, respectful, and creative communication. It can be hard. We aren’t perfect and strive to embrace difficult conversations not run from them.




Camper Parent

“This place is magical and special and all the nice words! We sent our 5 year old here for a week and it changed her life for the better. Thank you Camp Stomping Ground!”

What Else Are People Saying?



Get Involved

They say you are the combination of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Most kids, mostly spend time with other kids, mostly like them. At Stomping Ground, we hope to break that paradigm, but we need your help.

We need your time, ideas, donations, and connections. You make Stomping Ground possible. Thank you.
