  • Hi, seeking recommendations for a single-day camp next week!

    I know it’s too late for this winter break, but my daughter (3yo) had a great time at Nory which is a STEM camp that you can register for by the day or week. They have a number of locations, we went to the downtown Brooklyn location on the LIU campus. They also have summer camp the last two weeks of August.
  • Review from the 2023 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: LIU Brooklyn How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4.5 Review: Pickup was sometimes a bit disorganized. They didn't send out a parent contact list, which made scheduling playdates with new friends trickier. The STEM curriculum was mostly an aesthetic, which is about all that can be hoped for at age 4. I have mixed feelings about the NORY store: they give kids scrip with which to buy the cheapest possible plastic junk toys. On one hand, learning about money and saving is good. On the other hand, nobody needs several small plastic toys every day. Swim lessons didn't work for my kid, but that could just be because she is stubborn.
  • Review from the 2023 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: LIU Brooklyn How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: Clear communication from the camp about drop-off, pick-up and the activities for the week. We got daily recap emails and pictures in a Google album. Our 4-year old built a lot of fun projects, had outside time, had water play, and enjoyed recess. We felt the program was well-run and the counselors knew our child. It was nice to have a swimming add-on - we didn't sign her up at first because our kid doesn't swim independently, but the swimming program was able to accommodate that. Appreciated that the aftercare extended to 5:30 pm, the camp is located close to several different subway lines, and that it goes until the end of August - great location and hours for two working parents. Our child came home happy each day and really loved the site director. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? As a parent it would have been nice to meet my child's counselors, if only to be able to give them a tip at the end of the summer.
  • Review from the Spring 2023 Birthing Survey

    Location: Downtown Brooklyn LIU campus How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: Got introduced to wood work - with help from teachers our son built a scooter using wood planks and wheels, also a motorized pet. Pretty fun. Loathe the hours (until 3pm) - aftercare would just be too expensive for us What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? Have a park slope location option
  • February Break Camp with Aftercare Until 5pm for 4 Year Old

    Nory camp - regular camp until 3, but after camp until 5:30. Location/ University plaza (Flatbush/de kalb). Our kids love it, and we will go again for presidents week.
  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Brooklyn LIU Campus How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 3 Review: I was really pleasantly surprised by the camp because finding reviews beforehand was challenging. They have fantastic activities focused around a theme each week, there's a ton of space for the kids to move and run around (and they get a good chunk of outdoor time). They also provide a delicious catered lunch and have add-ons available like swim and soccer. My son also has a dairy allergy and they were phenomenal at handling that. One thing to note is that even the 3 year olds don't nap, so my son was definitely exhausted coming home at the end of the day (they suggest to do the half day if your kiddo needs to nap). What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? Move it closer to my house so we didn't need to drive there and back each day from Park Slope. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? By the time we got to camp, masks were optional.
  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Financial District How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 3 Review: Nory summer camp is amazing and my 3 year old is loving it! Every week there is a special theme and the kids work in groups (grouped by age generally) to create and build STEM projects - lots of robotics but also woodworking, general arts and crafts and other activities that get the creative juice flowing - and by the end of each week he would bring home the project. For example, the kids built soapbox derby cars a couple of weeks ago and had a race Friday afternoon when everyone finished their car. What’s also really cool is while kids are broken into groups based on age, by the end of each day they let the little ones go play in the bigger kids’ rooms so the little ones can learn from the big kids too. In addition to indoor STEM activities, they have the options to add on soccer classes (with Super Soccer Stars) or swim classes, and for those kids who do not opt in one of these classes, they will go play in the parks and water areas. They also have flexible schedules - you can enroll on a week-by-week basis, can do half days (9am-noon), full days (9am-3pm) or extended care (8:30am-5:30pm). Lunch is included and menu is good and healthy. The counselors also do a goos job encouraging the little ones to try different foods - my picky eater is actually eating different foods now thanks to the amazing counselors! The director even sent me information about how much my kid ate each day, etc. that was super helpful. My 3 year old hasn’t been a big fan of “regular school/daycare” (and would typically try to negotiate his way out of going to school in the morning), but loves Nory summer camp so much that he urges me every morning to leave the house so we don’t get there late, and when I go pick him up at the end of the day, he doesn’t want to leave! So to sum up, we had an amazing experience with Nory and I’m sure we’ll be back.
  • NORY summer camp experience?

    We loved going to NORY camp. Our 4 and 6 year old went for a few weeks last summer. We went to the one in downtown (LI campus), but they have several locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan. They had an option to add on swimming lessons twice a week, which we did. Their Covid protocols were excellent and their teachers wonderful. We will definitely sign up again this year.

    Name of camp: Nory Location: LI university, Brooklyn How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 and 5 Review: Fantastic. Very well organized, option for swimming on Monday and Friday afternoon. Every week they built something, and brought it home. Teachers are very nice, small class sizes. Lunch was included. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? We needed to submit a daily form
