    Comment:  Love that they have swim classes - the first time that our child has really enjoyed swimming. There was an issue with another child bullying our child one day at the beginning of the summer and it was dealt with quickly and effectively - the rest of the summer went smoothly and our child. Seemed like he had lots of fun with his friends there.If you could change anything, what would it be? More interaction between staff and parents.Age of child: 5-6Based on a Summer 2017 experience

    Comment:  both my children have been going to their afterschool program for a few years now and last year was there first summer for camp. My 6 year old son spent two weeks there last summer and loved it. It's a really nice camp, well run with great counselors. I would consider it a good alternative to Park Slope Day Camp or Camp Explorers but on the less expensive side. They do a variety of activities-sports, arts & crafts, cooking, out door play, swimming 3 days a week, weekly trips and they have a huge indoor facility not far away that they can utilize for rainy days. I really like that each week has a special theme (cooking, nature, martial arts, sports, etc) so our kids get extra activities and trips geared toward that theme. Recently the Y organized a parent camp committee where close to a dozen parents got together with the administration to discuss how to make improvements to the camp and they wanted to hear what the parents really wanted. I think they recently did the same thing with some campers. I thought this was a smart thing to do. Also, the organization is very committed to getting involved in our community which I think this great. Both my kids will be going back this summer

    Comment:  LIKES: Two areas--one for play, separate one for food but with a bouncy castle. We were left alone by the staff, which was great. I didn't feel rushed or like I needed to adhere to a schedule. What you'd change: We had a huge problem at first because the venue was closed and the staff had left. I had to place panicked calls and emails. It was clear the staff "forgot" about us. They showed up 50 minutes late to open the doors for us. Luckily I had (barely) enough time to get the party set up, but it was very stressful. Oh, and they lied about being 5 minutes away and having "stepped out briefly" but then the staffer showed up in a car service car, so clearly he hadn't just "stepped away". Do you recommend (High Rec, Rec, Rec w/ Reservations, Do Not Rec)? Recommend with Reservations

    Comment:  I just wanted to let you all in on a great new addition to our neighborhood. My son (5 years) is attending Kings Bay Y winter mini-camp this week. They're on Prospect Ave near the Ft. Hamilton subway stop around Greenwood Ave. He's only had one full day so far, but I am hooked! They went bowling yesterday, made gingerbread houses, and played and played! (my son's words!) They're going swimming today at their main facility in Sheepshead Bay, tomorrow a show at puppetworks, can't remember Thursdays activities, and swimming again on Friday! The counselors are wonderful, and my son is happy!! They are very reasonably priced (for the nabe!) They also do afterschool care, but I can't comment to that because we use aftercare at PS154. Check 'em out! www.ywindsorterrace.org

    Comment:  Just wanted to let you know that the new Kings Bay Y on Prospect Ave offers a great afterschool program for many of the schools in our neighborhood. They pick up from PS 130, 10, 154, 107,? 230 and others. It is extremely well organized and all the counselors have backgrounds in child development, child psychology and social work. They spend a good amount of time devoted to homework which was something that was very important to me as my 3rd grader has a lot of homework this year and I wanted a place where he could really focus and get most of it done during the day (otherwise nights can be super stressful). Once homework is done there are many fun activities for the kids to engage in like art, green projects, cooking, yoga, cartooning and more!I am not affiliated at all with this program or the Y but my son just started there this week and I wanted to help spread the word. They are not allowed to go into the schools to promote their programs so I thought I'd try to help.Here is more info on the afterschool program as well their other classes and drop in info for their playspace. I think this is a great addition to our neighborhood and hope you all check it out.(September 2011)
