About Us

Long Island Estonian Childrens Camp in Middle Island, NY first opened over 50 years ago in 1955 and has done so most every summer since then.  Suvekodu is a place where children of Estonian heritage can go to spend a few weeks each summer enjoying the fresh air, make friendships and learn about their culture.  The camp generally runs during the month of July.  It is set on the grounds of the Long Island Estonian House which is a 15 acre site and has a pool, sauna, basketball courts and track.. There are 4 cabins which house the campers and staff and the kids. Children 6-15 are welcome and are grouped by age.  Some activities are done all together and others are age specific.  The camp’s daily schedule involves a combination of cultural activities (song or dance), art classes, sports, lots of swimming and just plain relaxation.  Most evenings featured night time activities such as a talent show, a dance and pool parties.   Instruction is in both Estonian and English. The camp operates under the auspices of the N.Y. Estonian Educational Society and is staffed entirely by volunteers.



The summer camp opens on Saturday, July 6, 2024, and runs until Saturday, July 20, 2024.
