PLEASE NOTE: Multi-Sport camps involve one sport in the morning and one sport in the afternoon.  They are intended mainly for younger campers who are trying out new sports or campers who have limited time with us during the summer. If your child plans to come for multiple weeks of camp we recommend signing up for single sport weeks so they get both the drills and games of the same sport each day.

WILL MY CHILD MISS ANYTHING BY DOING A MULTI-SPORT CAMP?

Each multi-sport camp is a morning of one sport and an afternoon of another sport.  Campers will be brought to their afternoon location by their coaches before lunch and then play in the afternoon sport following lunch.  Please note that the multi-sport program will NOT OFFER both the drill session and game session for one sport as camps are structured with drills in the morning and games in the afternoon.  Depending on the multi-sport camp your child will miss the instructional drill portion of a sport or the afternoon game play.  If your child is attending more than one week of camp we suggest they do full weeks of individual sports to get the full day camp experience with both drills and games in that sport.

WHAT DO YOU DO IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER BOTH RAIN AND HOT DAYS?

Rain Plan: We try to hold camp outside as much as possible and for any rain predicted to end quickly we have covered and safe areas for the campers to wait before resuming play. If prolonged rain or inclement weather is predicted, we have indoor gym locations close to our Riverside Park fields that coaches will walk campers to for our Baseball/Basketball/Flag Football campers. Campers will be busy with indoor sports activities until it is deemed safe to go back to the fields. If the camp is still inside at the end of the camp day, pick-up will be at our indoor locations.

HOT DAYS: For very hot days, we end our afternoon games early and head to the nearby playground on West 98th Street in Riverside Park to relax in the shade. Campers are also able to go in the sprinklers. We take extra precaution on hot days with extra water breaks, extended lunch and we hold activities in the shade. We have NEVER canceled a day of camp due to weather.

HOW ARE CAMPERS GROUPED?

Each Monday morning coaches have an “evaluation day.” That helps us place campers in groups by ability first and age second. Our aim is to ensure your child plays with campers similar in experience for maximum improvement.

WHAT DOES MY CHILD NEED?

For Baseball Camp your child will need a glove, sneakers or athletic turf shoes, and shorts or baseball pants with high socks. A full camp uniform consisting of two camp T-Shirts, hat, water bottle, and athletic bag will be provided for each camper on their first day. Campers are required to wear their uniform shirt and hat each day and additional t-shirts and hats are available for purchase during registration.

DOES MY CHILD NEED LUNCH?

You need to provide a lunch for your child each day. No glass bottles, sodas, or energy drinks are allowed. We provide nut-free snacks before dismissal each day. Please inform us on the registration form if your child has any allergies.  We also offer an optional camp lunch program through the Ellington in the Park Cafe which is located at our camp location.  It is $50 per week additional for the daily lunch service and that option can be selected at registration.

WHO ARE YOUR CHILD’S COACHES?

We are very selective with our coaching staff and offer some of the best sports instructors in the area. Our senior coaches have extensive playing experience, some at the professional level in their sport, or prior coaching experience. We also have several excellent junior coaches who currently play high level college or high school in their sport.

WHAT IS THE CAMPER TO COACH RATIO?

At Kids of Summer we take pride in offering personal attention to all of our campers. Camper to coach ratio will never exceed 6 to 1.

WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS NEVER PLAYED?

Kids of Summer is great for beginners as well as advanced players. We will find the right fit for your child’s ability and divide the campers into several groups ranging from beginners all the way to experienced travel team players.

DO I HAVE TO SIGN UP FOR A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF TIME?

We are flexible with our scheduling. You may sign up for one week or for the whole summer, and weeks do not have to be consecutive.
