3.5 years old (or entering Pre-K4) to 13 years old (or entering 8th grade). We welcome campers entering Pre-K4 in the Fall that are potty trained and able to communicate effectively with counselors.
Campers are grouped based on the grade they are entering.
*Ex: A rising Kindergartener will be grouped with other children entering Kindergarten.
Groups remain fixed and under 15 campers. Our ratios are:
Yes! Campers must be entering the same grade. We ask that each family fill out the “Friend Request” area during registration. We will always do our best to accommodate friend requests, but can not guarantee campers will always be placed in groups with their friends.
Kids in the Game camp provides for an active day! Campers should wear comfortable sneakers that they can move in and clothes they can play games in. Younger campers are encouraged to pack an extra set of clothes to leave in their cubby.
All belongings should be clearly labeled with your child’s first and last name.
*Campers will receive a Kids in the Game t-shirt within their first week of camp.
Families are responsible for packing snacks and lunch each day. We are a nut-free camp!
Parents/guardians are not able to be on site throughout the camp day. While we appreciate our campers’ loved ones wanting to stop by, only campers will be allowed in the building. We strongly encourage you to ask about their day after pick-up so they can share their experiences with you at that time! Camp Directors and Assistant Directors are available to answer questions during drop-off and pick-up.
We strive to provide a welcoming environment for all campers! We will work with parents/guardians and campers to determine a safe and comfortable bathroom option.
Please bring the Epi-pen with you to camp, clearly labeling it. Speak to the camp director about the specific allergies so that we are able to educate their counselors. In the case of an emergency, our team will assist with Epi-pen application.
Each camp has a designated Health Director. In addition, a majority of our staff is First Aid, AED, and CPR certified. We also have an RN on call during the season should we need to consult further. Kids in the Game staff members will reach out to families immediately should a medical emergency arise.
Kids in the Game staff members include trained athletes, seasoned coaches, aspiring teachers, performing artists, camp enthusiasts, and above all, dedicated youth development workers. We share a common goal to provide positive experiences and opportunities through sports and creative play.
Create an account in our registration software, UltraCamp. After creating your account, you’ll be asked to input your child(ren)’s information and select your reservations, then pay a deposit. An up-to-date health form is required to attend and should be added to your child’s account prior to their first day of camp. Leading up to camp, we’ll ask you to complete some additional paperwork to make sure your camper is all set for the summer!
You have the option to pay in full at the time of registration, or enroll in a monthly payment plan with an initial deposit. The monthly payment plan will be processed on the 3rd of each month through June 3rd.
We are working with the CDC, ACA and DOH to determine what our protocols will be for this coming summer.
The NYS Department of Health has limited the total group size to no more than 36 campers. Although that is much larger than what our groups of no more than 15 will be, that does allow us to create stable divisions. Divisions are collections of smaller, stable groups (i.e. 3 groups of Teddies = 1 division). We look forward to having small groups come together for distanced activities through this guidance.
From running 7 camp locations in 2021, we have a full playbook of activities that have been modified to uphold safety standards including social distancing and limiting the sharing of equipment. Some have even become staff favorites!
As of May 18, 2022 Kids in the Game Summer Camps will not be mandating COVID-19 vaccination for campers. All staff are currently mandated to be vaccinated and will continue to be mandated as such. This decision is based on our continued monitoring of progress and guidance within the city’s school systems, NYS Department of Health expectations for childcare programs, and vaccination trends for 5-12 year olds. In line with those guidelines and trends, Kids in the Game will not be mandating mask use for campers or staff.
We have implemented numerous safety measures in accordance with the American Camp Association, the CDC, and the New York State Department of Health.
