Take a moment and look out your nearest window. What do you see? I see: dreary weather, people bundled head to toe and a few too many dogs wearing sweaters. It has me day dreaming of Mets games, swimming pools, field trips to the zoo and most of all Kids in the Game Summer Camp!
Good news! Registration is now open! See what we did there?
This year, we have a new sign-up portal, UltraCamp, accessible straight from our website, to make your camp season a little easier. Manage your campers' schedule here, payments, and forms here this year. Registration is now open and you will receive a discounted rate ($50 off per week) if you sign up before February 1st! Who doesn't love discounts?! And if that isn't enough, we have more great news this year...here are some New York Times worthy highlights we’d like to share:
1) POOL PARTY! This summer we are taking swimming to a whole new level and offering swim lessons! Our Kids in the Game team is full of ex-collegiate swimmers, swim instructors, lifeguards, and former aquatics managers, so it only makes sense to put them to work and teach some awesome lessons! Being able to swim is an important life skill and we are excited to now be offering it to our camp families. You will be able to sign up for lessons while registering for camp online.
2) Now if we were talking in Boy/Girl Scouts terms this next news is definitely badge worthy… we are now officially American Camp Association accredited! What does that mean? It means you can be rest assured that Kids in the Game is meeting the highest summer camp standards and practices. As of now there will be no badges on our uniforms (doesn’t mean I’m not working on it!), but there will be a snazzy new accreditation logo marking our camp as one of the best in the business. If you've done your research, you know the crazy prices that many camps charge. We pride ourselves on continuing to offer an affordable summer camp with an accredited team of mentors for your children.
3) *NO SLEEP TIL BROOKLYN! Or at least we didn’t sleep until we got our fourth camp location in Brooklyn! We are proud to be introducing our newest camp location in Park Slope at Saint Saviour High School! We are excited to offer this newest location and continue to build great relationships within the Brooklyn community.
*disclaimer: we promise full days of activity for your kids so they will definitely want to come home for a full night of sleep after a camp day in Brooklyn!
Even though we are excited to share all this great and latest news with you we are also excited to say a “day in the life” of a KING camper will still be chalk full of our classic camp activities. Sports games, friends, field trips, arts and crafts, and memories are just a few of our favorite things about camp.
Kids in the Game is so excited to welcome families old and new to 2017 summer camp at all four of our locations (Upper West, Inwood, Riverdale, Park Slope). We look forward to spending the summer with you and your kids!
