“My nine-year-old son has attended Kids of Summer baseball camp for the past three years and it is the only thing he wants to do all summer, every summer. He has participated in a number of different baseball programs in Manhattan and we both agree that Kids of Summer is the best. The coaches are great and he has learned a lot. Fun, affordable, well organized, and in wonderful Riverside Park — Kids of Summer is everything a summer camp should be, even in the heart of NYC.”

Karen D.

“We have been involved with this organization for over 5 years now- from the sports camps to the travel teams for both baseball and basketball. The coaches are top notch and really care about the kids. We feel like this organization is an extension of our family. They are very professional and teach the kids all the fundamental skills. Highly recommend.”

Maureen H.

“My son has been going to Kids of Summer for many years. Every single coach has been incredible. They’re all warm and interested in the kids, and they know how to teach them while making it lots of fun. My son’s skills have improved greatly, and he begs to go back every year. He also wants to become a counselor when he’s old enough, he just can’t get enough of this program. My 8 year old daughter will start going this summer as well, she’s thrilled. I highly recommend this as a summer camp option!”

Ali L.

“Kids of Summer has helped shaped my son’s sports and social life! Mike Handell is the driving force behind KOS and is amazing to work with. My son has met his best friends during these camps, and developed real relationships with many of the coaches. The athletic offerings are excellent, but I’m mainly impressed by Mike’s staff and how well they understand kids and their needs – across the board.”

David A.

“I have 2 (girl and boy) kids who have been working with the Kids of Summer coaches since they could hold a ball. Fantastic teaching with a constant focus on fun.”
