  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: 32 Madison St How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: We were totally overwhelmed by how expensive camps were in Brooklyn. With potential disruptions for COVID/illness, and uncertainty about our summer travel schedule, we were loathe to pay $500+ per week (up to $1K in some cases!) and then not get full use out of the time. Summer Splash was recommended to us by a friend whose child attends the BCfA after school program and it was $1400 for 7 weeks - an absolute bargain. The camp is no frills, but we loved the director, Ms Casey, who was incredibly kind and communicative, and my daughter loved her teacher, Ms Pat. They took feedback extremely well whenever we had questions or an issue, and my daughter had a ton of fun and made friends. They have an excellent dance and music program (this is their specialty during the school year) and my daughter loved learning the steel pan drums. Other than that it seemed to be a lot of playground time (they have their own) and some lightweight arts and crafts. The Friday field trips aren't enrichment exactly (movies, bowling, etc) and cost extra ($20 for bus plus cost of the activity) but honestly we weren't so obsessed with enrichment when I was a kid and I turned out fine. I'd send my daughter there again and recommend it to anyone looking for a less intense, less expensive summer option. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I would love them to take and send more photos throughout the day and to give more information on what the children are up to all day. It's a bit old school that way (no apps with updates when we were kids) and my daughter is too young to really report back on her day. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? I thought they did a pretty good job. The mask policy was a little unclear at the start - kids masked on day 1, but then that seemed to stop. When there were a couple COVID cases they informed us immediately, had us all test, and (re)instituted masking indoors to account for the surge.
