The Giants may be our youngest campers, but they have the biggest fun! The Giants are a co-ed group with complete use of our Early Childhood facility, the large playground, and the rest of campus. Certified teachers organize the day’s activities. It’s not a small world after all at Staten Island Academy Day Camp! (Please note: 5 year-olds who will be entering Grade 1 in September 2017 will be placed in the Juniors Division.)
Think your little one is not ready for a full day of camp? We have the solution - our half-day program for Giants. You can choose either the morning (9 AM – 12 PM) or afternoon (1 PM – 4 PM) program. We provide lunch in the morning program and a snack in the afternoon. All full day campers will swim. All campers have full use of our facilities and are supervised by our same experienced staff of certified teachers.
For Super Seniors, it’s “all of the above” plus a second weekly trip off-Island. All Super Senior trips and transportation costs are included in camp tuition. Trips will only be guaranteed when a camper’s application is received and paid in full two weeks prior to the trip date. Don’t miss out on the adventure that is the Super Senior experience.
Seniors and Super Seniors venture out once a week for trips such as: bowling, go-carts and ice skating. In addition, Super Seniors take off-Island trips such as: Dorney Park, Seaside Heights and new this year – Ripley’s Believe it or NOT!
The Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program is an exciting opportunity for young people to work alongside experienced camp staff while receiving important training in areas such as supervision, boundaries, taking initiative, sensitivity, communication, teamwork and how to handle themselves in difficult situations. Weekly workshops will teach and reinforce skills and strategies necessary for CITs to advance to a Junior Counselor staff position. Each session lasts two weeks, and CITs will be evaluated at the end of each session. Performance during their training session will be a factor in determining if and when they are ready to start work as a Junior Counselor. Employment as a Junior Counselor is not guaranteed, but we work with all CITs to support them during training if it is their goal.
