  • Review from the 2023 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Prospect Park How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: I dropped my son off each morning by PPW and 15th Street. He liked the staff and was happy to spot them each morning. He loved to run and play every day. He likes sports and games, and would often demonstrate the games he learned in camp and ask me to play them with him. He fell asleep by 6pm a few nights on the couch when he got home. When there were weather issues the camp communicated in the morning about location changes to their indoor site. The staff were kind, and communicative. I'm glad he got to experience this camp, and plan to send him back.
  • Review from the Fall 2022 After School Survey

    Location: Prospect park and greenwood church Name of the specific program, if applicable: Mindful sports How old was your child during the Fall 2022 semester? 5 What kind of program is it? Various sports and play Review: He didn’t love being in the church for inclement weather - not the most fun but that’s their backup for rain and i appreciated as a working parent. Long walk from Ps39 What skills did your child develop? He learned about new sports like pickle ball! What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? It’s very expensive as compared to other park programs.

    Check out Mindful Sports. They’re doing mini camps on 09/6 and 09/7 and are currently offering camp for the week of 08/29 (if anyone Is still looking) in prospect park. The director of the program, Sam Faeder, is wonderful and very responsive.

  • Review from the 2021 Summer Camp Survey

    Name of camp: Mindful Sports Location: Prospect Park How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 7 (entering 3rd grade) Review: I was really happy with this camp. My son did a wide variety of sports, including many he never played before. He always came home happy, dirty and tired, which I would call a success. They also integrated a mindful walk every day. The camp director Sam is very hands on, and is with the groups in the park all day. He seems to remember the names of all the kids and their parents. The camp was very responsive to any suggestions that were brought to their attention. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? I thought they were great at following the guidelines even as they changed. Since the camp was fully outdoors, masks for the kids were optional, which I agreed with and was in line with the CDC recommendations. They required counselors to be vaccinated and let the families know that.

    Name of camp: Mindful Sports Location: Prospect Park How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 6 Review: My kiddo loved attending Mindful Sports for the week he went! He loved playing fun games, engaging with other kids in person (finally!) and the staff were really welcoming and kind! He had a hard time daily at drop off (we've been remote since covid, knew it was going to be hard) but they were incredibly supportive and the kid even got an award at the end of the week.
  • ISO: Full Day Camps at the end of Summer

    Mindful Sports opened up camp options for late summer through Sept 10th. My older son is doing their camp now and it seems great. He comes home very happy and very dirty :)
  • ISO Outdoor Summer Camp for 4-year old

    Mindful sports is wonderful!!! They have a fully outdoor program we have been doing since September and both my 5 and 7 yo love it. Summer camp is completely outdoors in Prospect Park.
  • Review from the 2020 Summer Camp Survey

    Age of child: 8, 10 Comment: Both my boys loved it. Sam is great with kids. It was a small group and they played a good diversity of games: baseball, soccer, camp-type games (tag etc.). Kids do not need to be too experienced in anything to join. There was not too much "mindfulness" as far as the kids reported back. There were some point-based reward systems (even culminating in a 'prize' at the end of the week) that the kids seemed to enjoy. Anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it you'd like to add? Precautions seem to be taken seriously.
  • Outdoor classes/camp in Prospect Park for 3-6 year olds?

    We have our son enrolled in the last week (August 31) of summer camp in Mindful Sports. They also have a fall program for which we signed up. All outdoors in prospect park for kids ages 5-12. Our son has been doing this and loves it.
  • Kids @ Home Fall Option

    Just wanted to share a great option for kids for non-classroom days this fall. My son LOVES Mindful Sports, a Park Slope outdoor program that teaches mindfulness and sports to kids. The coaches are amazing. They’re running half-day morning and afternoon sessions Mon-Fri in Sept-Oct. Great COVID Safety Guidelines. The summer program has been terrific. Check it out!
