Coleman Country Day Camp closes for the summer


Coleman Country Day Camp, a popular summer destination for hundreds of kids in Bellmore and Merrick, will be closed for the summer.

The announcement was made by camp owners Ross and Kelli Coleman through a pre-recorded video on social media.

“We’ve wanted nothing more than for camp to happen this summer,” said Kelli, “to reunite with our Coleman family here on the ranch. We miss you and we love you.”

“It’s that love that drives this painful decision not to open camp,” Ross said. “We’ve done everything to figure out a way to safely reunite with each of you. So, with all the emotion in the world, we start the countdown to summer 2021.”

“We can’t wait to see all of the memories we’re going to make together in the future,” added Ross. “You best believe we’re coming back next year better than ever.”
