As the school year draws to a close, we wanted to call everyone’s attention to a number of opportunities for summer fun and learning at several different camps that we are hosting.

Our “Bridge Camps” (for K-1 and for 2-5) are afterschool outdoor adventure camps covering those several days after regular afterschool ends on June 14th and when summer begins. You can sign up for individual days between Monday, June 17th and Tuesday, June 25th. Camp goes from dismissal until 5:30 and the price is $50 per day.

STEM Camp with Ms. Sora! Everyone’s favorite PS 166 technology teacher, Ms. Jenny Sora, will host two weeks of STEM camp at PS 166 on 89th Street. Open to students from PS 166, 84, and 9 entering 1st grade and above. Children will learn about robotics and coding and other fun computer-related stuff. The weeks will be July 8-12 and July 15-19 and you can sign up for either one or both. Space is very limited so sign up today!

Summer Performing Arts Camp for grades 1-5. This camp at PS 9 (84th Street) spans seven weeks between Monday, July 1st and Friday, August 16th from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. You can sign up for all seven weeks or just individual weeks as needed. Each week the children and their director Jeff Edmond brainstorm ideas for a new show, learning songs and dialogue and dance routines and performing for friends and family at the end of the week.

Summer Adventure Camp for Li’l Explorers for Pre-K and K. Also at PS 9, our early childhood specialists, Diana Carrera and Celia Vasquez, have developed a program customized for our students who are entering kindergarten and first grade next year. This camp follows the same schedule as our performing arts camp but will focus on the interests and developmental needs of the younger children.

Basketball Camp with Mr. Sayeed. Our basketball program is expanding with Mr. Sayeed establishing teams at our sites at PS 166, PS 84, and PS 9 and arranging for the teams to travel to each other’s schools for games. This summer, from July 15th to 19th, Sayeed and his coaches will host a basketball camp at PS 9. With regulation courts and an air conditioned gym, it will be a great place to work on your basketball skills. This camp is open to children in grades 3 to 5.

Aligning course offering with the needs and desires of the community is an ongoing project. In some cases the challenge is to offer classes in afterschool that expand on the strengths of the school…an art class (with 80 minute blocks of time) can allow a child who is learning to draw, the time and quiet and support to take that interest further.

We host “back to school night” every single day. Working parents who can’t pick their child up at 3 p.m. can pick them up at 5:40 p.m. This is actually a really big deal. Parents can meet and speak with other parents that they would never see otherwise.

A number of our instructors are daytime teachers, paraprofessionals, or assistant teachers. Teaching in afterschool allows them to work in small groups with children who are interested in a specific topic.
