Over the years, Tranquillity has grown from its simple roots as a single farmhouse located on several acres of land, to an expansive campus with fully-modernized houses, a beautiful dining room, two swimming pools, a large multi-purpose Sports Center, a modern theater and an air-conditioned infirmary. The Cohen family has remained an integral part of Tranquillity, staying true to Elias A’s mission of providing a fun, safe and exciting summer camp experience at an affordable cost.
