Athletics

Introduction
Andrew, our Athletics Director, has over 20 years of experience as a physical education teacher and summer camp recreation specialist. Our Athletics Program offers a wide array of organized, age-appropriate games and sports - a daily curriculum of fun! We balance individual skill and confidence-building activities with team games and sports, to help novice players feel good about themselves and offer opportunities to challenge the abilities of the more accomplished athletes. Fun and safety are our highest priorities!

Field Sports
Field sports are an integral part of the summer camp experience. Each camper is scheduled daily at the beautiful Battery Park City ball fields for a wide variety of activities including: soccer, kickball, t-ball, wiffle ball, relay races, running games, capture the flag, and parachute games are all a part of the program. Drinking water is always available at the field. On high heat index days, we use the camp yards, gyms or other indoor spaces instead.

Gym Sports
Each week our campers enjoy a variety of gym sports and games: basketball, wiffle ball, crab soccer, relay races, parachute games, batting practice, steal the bacon, four corners and more! The gym is a perfect recreation area rain or shine!

Tennis
About once a week, we offer group tennis instruction to our campers. We focus on helping campers learn to hit the ball in a fun and safe environment. This introduces them to a great sport that they can enjoy for a lifetime.

Karate
One of our most popular activities at camp, karate is fun for all ages! We have several Tae Kwon Do black belts on our staff who have been teaching karate with us at camp for years. Children may have the opportunity to take an advancement test for a certificate or belt during the summer. They also have the option to continue practicing with us during the school year.
