Review from the 2022 Summer Camp SurveyLocation: 588 6th Street How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: We had an overall positive experience during my son's two weeks at Kids in the Game. The staff seemed kind and he was always happy to go without any complaints, which is a good measure of his overall engagement. It seemed like he had a pretty active day most days. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I never actually saw the classroom where the kids spend a lot of the day and there's not a ton of feedback from staff on what goes on all day long. There's also a different theme each week, which mostly seems irrelevant for the younger kids, but that's not communicated. Only got one picture over two weeks, too. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? There's really no COVID protocols in place, which I guess isn't terribly surprising in 2022. We still prefer my son wear a KN95 indoors as he had yet to complete his COVID vaccine schedule, but he almost always emerged from the upstairs classrooms at the end of the day without one, or with it in his backpack. Again, that's 2022 for you, I suppose.
Review from the 2022 Summer Camp SurveyLocation: St Savior High school How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 10 Review: The caMp was ok but nothing special. The kids mostly hung out at the school. There were various activities every week but somehow it was not very fun. They sit a lot in the classrooms and sometimes they play games in the gym. Kids get rewarded with icepops if they “listen”/behave or win a game, otherwise, no icepop. There was swimming once or twice a week which was fun. All in all the coaches were not very caring or excited to be there. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? More trips to the park, Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? My kid was one of the two kids wearing masks, there were no other precautions and nobody wore a mask
Kids in the Game or other Summer Campmy boys went to kids in the game for several weeks last summer and loved it they've mostly hated other day camps so I'm not sure why this one clicked they do theme weeks and that was a very big deal for my kids
Review from the 2021 Summer Camp SurveyName of camp: Kids in the Game Location: Saint Saviour high school How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 5 Review: The camp tried to provide a range of activities, with cohorted groups of children. But they did not follow their own covid protocols, spending many hours inside in large, mixed groups in small spaces, even though they are a block from the park. This included movies in the library and team basketball with no masks and no open windows. Counselors were cavalier and kids were left to make their own decisions about masking. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? Clearer protocols, that were adhered to in a consistent manner.
Kids in the Game?I'm sending my child to Kids in the Game for the second year in a row. It's a little far for me, but they are a block from the park and their focus is active play, which my kid needs. The "coaches" are great — very friendly, upbeat, and energetic. I picked this camp because my son knew the coaches from when they did after-school at P.S. 372, and they were so effusive on seeing him this morning that it gave me the warm n' fuzzies. They're doing reasonable Covid stuff. They do a trip once a week and swim lessons once a week and open swim if your kid can pass the test. I think it's a good value!
Review from the 2020 Summer Camp SurveyAge of child: 7 Comment: My son loved all of the different games and fun themes with related prizes. A big shout out to the staff who were very energetic and fun. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I didn’t realize they would watch video clips/movies related to themes at lunch. Not a big deal but I didn’t realize and my son would talk about it. Anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it you'd like to add? On the whole well managed some kids weren’t in masks and wish they’d been required.
Review from the 2020 Summer Camp SurveyAge of child: 6 Comment: Not a bad camp experience for the pandemic, I guess. I chose it because this outfit did my kid's after-school program in preschool a couple years ago. My child doesn't tell me anything, so who knows what they really did, but he didn't complain and he was always happy to bounce on in there in the morning. I think a good deal of park time, lots of games, active stuff. The "coaches" are very nice. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I'd love to have gotten a schedule of activities so I could know what the day looks like. Anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it you'd like to add? They did daily temp checks and self-reported symptom checks. And no outbreaks!
Review from the 2020 Summer Camp SurveyAge of child: 6.5 Comment: Staff were very professional and responsive. My son had a good time at the camp and was happy to go every day (8-6). He learned new games, spent at least a good few hours most days outside in PP and did a few other fun activities (he doesn't go into much detail). What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? They had an app but didn't upload many details on it. Would have been great to see some photos - especially since my son doesn't share much detail about what he has done in the day. Anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it you'd like to add? All seemed to be well-organised. Kids didn't have to wear masks.
Review from the 2017 PSP Summer Camp Survey2017 was KING's 1st summer hosting a day camp in Park Slope. They have other locations for many years. We love that they have a home base gym and cafeteria at St. Saviour's for rainy and hot days and end of day activities. Daily trips to Prospect Park, 1 day trip, 1 day swimming. My son loved the engaged and energetic counselors, the activities and swimming. It is a very well run program/organization and we will do it again for a couple of weeks next year. If you could change anything, what would it be? Perhaps a second or more days of swimming. Age of child: 7 Based on a Summer 2017 experience
