Age Specific Groups

Kids in the Game summer camps are offered for children ages 3 to entering 8th grade. Each division of campers listed below allows children to thrive among peers within their age appropriate program. Each camp will follow a slightly different daily schedule that reflects their age-specific requirements. Within each camp, kids will be grouped with others their exact age and assigned to a senior counselor. We maintain very low counselor to camper ratios for all age groups.

  • Junior Camp Entering Pre-K and Kindergarten
  • Lower Camp Entering 1st to 4th Grade
  • Upper Camp Entering 5th to 8th Grade

FAQ’s

The camp is located at St Margaret's of Cortona School. We use the school as our home base and drop off / pick up spot. After the morning cheers and announcements, we head out to the parks nearby. We return to school for lunch time but the majority of the camp day is spent outside.

The camp day starts at 9am, although early drop off starts as early as 8:00am for working parents. The camp will go until 4pm. Families can pick up anytime between 4 and 4:30pm. If your family needs after-care post 4:30pm, you can sign up for our after-care program that runs until 6pm.

Not a problem! You can let the camp directors know at the desk that morning and we'll make sure your camper is back at the school ready for pickup.

Our campers range from 3.5 up to 13 years old. The campers are broken up into groups based on the grade they are entering. For example, the 5-year-olds, named 'Gummies', will spend the day with others their age, and not be with the 12-year-olds, which we call the 'Blue Jays'.

You can email us at info@kidsinthegame.com or call our office at (212)634-7262.

We do not allow parents to be on site throughout the camp day. Campers get distracted easily and we want to ensure they're getting the most out of their experience with us! Camp Directors will keep you updated on the week's schedule and any special theme days your children can participate in.

Our camp is an active day! Campers should wear sneakers that they can be outside in and clothes that they can play games in. Younger campers are encouraged to bring an extra set of clothes to camp to leave for the summer.

The essentials: Lunch, Snack, Sunscreen, Bugspray, and a Water Bottle. Next up: Change of clothes, swimsuit, KING t-shirt for trip days.

Each campsite has a Health Director. In addition, a majority of our staff is First Aid, AED, and CPR certified. We also have an RN on call during camp in case we need to consult further. We'll also be in touch with families immediately in case there is a medical condition we need to address.

Please bring the Epi-pen with you to camp, clearly labeling it. Speak to the camp directors about the specific allergies so that we are able to educate their specific counselors. In the case of an emergency, our team would assist with the Epi-pen.

Families are responsible for bringing snack and lunch each day! We are a nut-free camp (due to many campers having peanut allergies) so please do not bring any nut sandwiches! Soy nut butter is okay. All lunches are required to be refrigerated each day

In order to enroll, you'll need to fill out our registration form on the website, putting down the deposit for camp. Leading up to camp, we'll also ask you to complete some paperwork (trip consent, pick up the waiver, and health form) to make sure that your camper is ready to go for the summer!

We'll begin sending updated camp balances after you register. We ask that families take care of the balance before coming to camp on the first day. For families that need flexibility to pay week to week, please reach out to us directly to set up a payment plan.

You may cancel camp registration up to one day prior to the beginning date of the program. No refunds, credits or program transfers will be issued on or after the day camp begins.
