NYC Summer Sports Day Camp: An engaging and enriching outdoor day camp for your little ones!

Our well-rounded Summer Day Camp is filled with outdoor time, games, sports, socializing, and visual or performing arts. Focusing on the outdoors, your little ones will experience the vast playground that nature (even in the city) offers through numerous sports and play activities for the curious and active kids! Outdoor fun includes activities like swim and surf instructions, bike-riding lessons, roping, educational play games, and inventive outdoor crafts. All the experiences are made to be fun, safe, and memorable! Weekly programs will be adjusted to fit the age of the participants while also trying to incorporate any individual wishes.

In light of the current climate we want to offer families that are staying in the city and probably have one or two working parents, a way to send their kids to camp but at the same time keep the families safe. We have recruited a group of young and healthy teachers and guides that will make sure the camp is a blast while also adhering to the safety and precautions standards to keep us all healthy.

Program details

Age & Group Size

The NYC Summer Sports Day Camp is suitable for preschoolers aged 4 to 6 and kids aged 6+ to 9 years.

For each separate week, we are aiming to combine two separate groups depending on the age. There is a min 3 and max 5 preschoolers per week and a min 3 and max 5 older kids during the same week with a 4/1 of children/caregiver ratio.

Camp Location

The location of the camp will change daily, as we move from the ocean and the beach, into the forest and meadows. We will discuss the exact pick-up location in NYC after the booking (we can adjust pick up location to individuals).

We will communicate the exact locations of the day camp a week in advance. Activity spots will be chosen in adherence to the state recommendations.

Transportation

Daily commutes are organized in air-conditioned private transportation, stocked with endless versions of kids’ favorite songs, will be carrying up to 3 kids per vehicle to accommodate space for car seats or boosters but also allowing some more flexibility with pickups and drop-offs. Children will be picked up and dropped off at home at the agreed time. The length of the drive depends on the daily location, however, we will be planning for a max 1h ride one way. The comfortable ride home is a great time for kids to nap as well.

Camp supported by:

 

Camp attendance in early childhood has been proven to have lasting positive effects on the psychological development of the child. Promoting important life values while playing outside with peers can facilitate a child to learn the basics of good behavior. On top of that, physical activity in nature has been associated with decreased rates of depression, attention disorders, and obesity. In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, our job, as camp organizers, is to carefully think of the necessary measures in order to create a safe interactive space, where children can play with each other while minimizing the likelihood of the spread of the virus. With that in mind, we are constantly following all required local and state health department policies and requirements regarding communication and prevention of the outbreak at a camp. Read the full pediatricians guidance for camp attendance  HERE
Each child that will join the camp will receive a BHT water bottle and a washable mask by us. Masks are made in child sizes, fun colors, and soft materials. Camp teachers and guides will encourage kids to wear masks and practice other safety and hygiene practices (keeping distance and washing hands) at all times.
All locations will be carefully chosen based on criteria to keep our children safe and to be able to practice social distancing. All outdoor locations allow us to keep a safe distance from any other people there, we will go to parks and beaches that are less popular and crowded, while indoor spaces will always be separated and reserved for our group only. We will be encouraging and teaching children why it is important to keep a distance from others. All the indoor locations that we work with are required to keep their facilities clean according to the CDC recommendations.

The group will be small, max 10 children compared to the standard summer camp group size of 20. Staff is required to check their temperature daily and stay home if showing any symptoms while we require the same for children. 

We have carefully studied and will be looking to follow the “field guide” for how summer and day camps can operate more safely during the coronavirus pandemic released by the American Camp Association and the YMCA of the USA. Read the full guide HERE.

The camp will take place in any weather conditions. In case of rain, we have a flexible schedule to switch locations and activities for those taking place indoors or in covered facilities where rain is not a problem.
The staff will be making sure that kids wear masks during transportation and wash their hands regularly. Snacks and lunches will be monitored to prevent food sharing while provided snacks will be individually packaged to ensure safety.

Despite the fact that activities included in the camp do not necessarily require tight physical contact, we cannot guarantee that there will be zero contact. However, staff will be intervening to ensure children are practicing sports activities safely and correctly. If your child or anyone in your close family household is in the high-risk group we do not recommend your child to participate in the camp to avoid any unnecessary risk.

Don’t worry if your child is not a “sporty” type! Our summer camp is suitable for all skill levels, as all the activities are taught by certified and experienced safety instructors, who know how to work with a group of active little campers. No previous swim/surf/bike/skate/climbing experience is needed.
Daily lunch is not included in the price, but snacks and water are. Just pack your child a lunchbox as you would sending them to school.
While offering safe, fun, and active daily adventures into the great outdoors, we suggest bringing comfortable and protective sports clothes and a backpack with a snack, disinfectant, hat, and sunscreen.
Yes, we offer flexible schedules and you can sign up for individual days throughout the summer, but with a minimum purchase of 3 days (nonconsecutive).
