What is Your Child Doing This Summer?

No doubt about it—summer is here! Just days ago, New York City schools dismissed children for the next two months. Even the best planners may still be looking to fill their kids’ calendars. For those people, we have great news: several Children’s Aid camps throughout New York City have open slots still available, including in Staten Island, East Harlem, and Washington Heights.

Most of these camps are in session for six weeks or more (but those interested should check with site coordinators or program directors for specific dates). All of them offer a wide range of activities, including field trips, art, dance, and sports and recreation. Most importantly, they offer academic enrichment activities so children don’t suffer summer learning loss.

And there’s even better news: these camps are FREE.

So don’t waste any time. Call these sites to sign children up today:
