Summer Camp At Island Kids Is Over - Parent Reports It Was A Great Experience For Roosevelt Island Children


Roosevelt Island resident JPH reports on his child's experience this summer at the Island Kids Summer Day Camp which ended August 26.
I have enjoyed reading the blog posts about the great programs for kids on Roosevelt Island and wanted to mention one more: Island Kids. Our son started Island Kids this past summer for the first time and he had a terrific experience.

The camp program was excellent and varied. Our son especially enjoyed the sports activities, which took place on Capobianco Field.


Every week at camp included swimming, sports, arts,


 theater,

and reading. Wednesday's were Field Trip Day, and the kids have been all over the city, including to a nature preserve, a working farm in Queens, and the Victorian Gardens amusement park in Central Park.

The camp also took advantage of the many great facilities on the Island.


In addition to using Capobianco Field, the kids swam at Westview and used the playground down behind Blackwell House. Best of all the main camp facility was in the basement of the Chapel of the Good Shepherd, exposing the kids every day to this wonderful landmark.

We can't say enough about the counselors, who were upbeat, dedicated and really in tune with the kids.


The camp had a great ratio of counselors to kids so there was good coverage and supervision.


Island Kids Summer Day Camp was not free, but very reasonably priced. We looked at other city camps and most were double or more the cost of Island Kids. Nikki Leopold, the camp director, has established a well-run program and we are happy our son  had such a great resource available to him this summer.

Mr. Farance adds:
Just like JPH, I have been very happy with Island Kids: the camp has the right mix of activities (sports, cognitive, freeplay, etc.). This is their fourth year, Emilia and David have made new friends and have enjoyed the familiarity of old friends. After camp, many of the kids hang around and play in the plaza. Regardless of the shift in venue and the plaza work, this was really a great summer at Island Kids ... the kids loved it!
