The mission of the Bank Street Summer Camp and KiDS College is to foster emotional, physical and ethical growth within campers and kids, by using educational professionals to help them develop their own personalities and individual voices through love of play, creativity and collaboration. Through experiential education, we seek to strengthen not only individuals, but the community as well, and the larger society, in which adults and children, in all their diversity, interact and learn. We see, in both Camp and our weekend programs, the opportunity to educate and build a better society.
While the Sports programs are located in Bank Street’s gym, campers will also be using our many local parks such as Riverside, Morningside and Central Park, all of which are less than four blocks away. Drills, workouts and games will focus on building individual skills, teamwork, knowledge of a variety of sports, and total body coordination. The program is coed with a focus on personal growth rather than competition. Come join, no matter what your skill level and be ready to work and grow this summer! Sports will also be involved in the usual Bankstreet Camp fun: camp wide programs with the Upper camp groups, overnight trips, and, of course, the Bank Street swim program.
