Welcome to Staten Island Academy's Day Camp!
For nearly 70 years, Staten Island Academy Day Camp has been a place where children come to enjoy their summers and meet new friends. Our youngest campers have become parents themselves and now send their own children to camp! “Our legacy is so vital to the history of Staten Island,” said one Mom whose children attend camp. Generations of camp families return year after year to participate in the wide variety of activities the Academy offers each summer season. We can’t wait to see them again!
Why is the Staten Island Academy summer day camp so successful? “It must be the dedicated staff,” said a grandfather, when asked. Everyone that works at camp loves children and is focused on three main ideas. First, all children are treated with respect. Second, campers enjoy a safe and secure place to grow and learn. Third, everyone has fun! Children of all ages, shapes and sizes can experience many wonderful opportunities. Whether on the fields of play, on stage, in the lab or swimming in our pools, every child can be actively involved in choosing a specific schedule in which to participate.
“These are memories that will last a lifetime! My daughter can’t decide what she loved most, but we both know where she’ll be next summer.”
This summer will be filled with traditional programs like Discovery Science, Engineering with Lego, Talented and Gifted camp (TAG) and of course, our fabulous Dance Show! In addition, this year we are introducing two new programs. For the Steven Spielberg in all of us, we are offering a Filmmaking and Animation Camp, Incrediflix. For families who want their children to reinforce learning skills, we are beginning PARC camp. The Patrick Academic Resource Center is going to be available to serve and support children’s academic development during the camper’s time spent here on campus.
Our highly exciting “Theme Days” will keep us busy all summer long. Remember the competition of “Challenge C week and Color Wars? Carnival should be amazing again along with Super Soaker Day and the Scavenger Hunt! Every day is a day filled with fun in the sun!
Join us for a tour at an Open House or call to speak to a member of our terrific staff. We would love to say “Welcome to the family!”
