UNIQUE THINGS ABOUT THIS LOCATION

  • We use the 1st and 2nd floors at UNIS with clear boundaries of our designated camp space, including UNIS' amazing outdoor playground on the East River.
  • Instead of the Breadmaking Studio, we are bringing back our very popular Sushi Studio for the second year.
  • More space and equipment for outdoor sports! With international campers, we find that soccer is very popular at this location. 
  • Inflatable Obstacle Race in the AM, Inflatable Water Play in the PM
  • Water Play is guaranteed to be available on hot days! We recommend that families apply sunblock at home and send children with a bathing suit or change of clothes, and a towel.
  • We are open July 5th!  We'll be offering a modified schedule with 4th of July-themed recreational offerings to celebrate the holiday and adjust to lighter than usual attendance. Some of our regular Studios may not be available. To find out more about programming, you can reach out to your Director.

REALLY IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • Additional state-required paperwork must be submitted for every child before their first day of day camp. Click here for New York state required forms to fill out before attending camp, and NY Medical Form FAQs. Please check the online orientation for more information.
  • Our host school maintains their security during the summer. As you arrive, there is a check point - be prepared to show ID!
  • BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE LINK BELOW FOR THE VIRTUAL ORIENTATION. This provides information relevant to all of our camp locations, including information and videos about how to check-in/check-out, what to bring (and not bring), and so much more.

Activities for every interest.

Whatever your child’s passion, they can push their limits at our camp.
Stop-motion animation, fashion, coding, sushi, sports, music, dance, and so much more.

RECREATIONAL SUMMER CAMP FEATURES

Each day at camp, we offer at least one showstopper activity from our lineup of Recreational Features. The Director at each location will decide when and how often to schedule each of their three Recreational Features, so feel free to contact your Director or look at the Daily Features schedule below to find out what will be scheduled each day.

  • SLIP_N_SLIDE_SPECIALS_SUMMER

    Inflatable Slip and Slide- Add some slide to your stride and cool off in style with our (newly redesigned!) giant inflatable slip and slide. Water play is every afternoon unless weather does not permit. All you need is a swimsuit and towel to participate!

  • GAGA_SPECIALS_SUMMER

    Gaga - The name of the game and also how campers feel about it: Gaga! This fan fave is essentially a high energy dodgeball-style game played in an octagonal pit. There may be 8 sides to this arena, but one opinion...gaga!

  • NINJA_ARENA_SPECIALS_SUMMER

    Inflatable Obstacle Race
    This pumped-up pop-up primetime-inspired arena is just the dual duel your camper was waiting for! Side-by-side lanes allow for head-to-head battles of Steve & Kate’s own Team Chuckie versus Team Kahali, but everyone wins when they’re climbing, tunneling, and bouncing their way through this fun-flatable course.

TESTIMONIALS

Daryl absolutely loved S&K. He wants to go back next summer. Not having a fixed schedule worked very well for him. He liked that he could move around freely and make his own decisions about what to do when. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone.

Ayodele E.

(S&K parent)

My kids loved it! Everyday they brought home crafts and bread. They were chatty with each other about what they had done and whom they had played with.

Jeanhee K.

(S&K parent)

My son was sewing and making cool things in the style studio. It was pretty awesome and unexpected.
