The A.C.T. Summer program is one of the few in the five boroughs that boasts extensive outdoor and indoor facilities, eight-weeks of programming, long and short day hours, theme based and specialized activities and a wonderfully diverse community of campers.
Centrally located near public transportation, our
11-acre Manhattan campus allows children to: garden and harvest, learn to be athletes and artist in the art and dance studios, make friends and play on expan-
sive lawns, enjoy outdoor picnics under the shade of maple trees, learn skills in two gymnasiums and two outdoor playgrounds, get wet in water splash areas and play in a Ga-Ga pit and practice golf strokes and other games in the indoor Games Arena.
THE SEVEN CORE VALUES established by staff expressed through our actions, program events and staff training activities unify the staff approach in creating memorable and fun camp experiences for each child. Our seven core values are a love of LEARNING, achievement through TEAMWORK and partnerships, acceptance and recognition of DIVERSITY, a FUN and friendly environment, CHILD-CENTEREDNESS, ORGANIZED people and resources that provide a SAFE haven.

Campers are grouped by age and/or grade. Requests for pairing with a friend or sibling must be requested in writing at the time of registra- tion. Enrollment as a pair cannot be guaranteed or be a condition of enrollment. If appropriate and timely, we will attempt to meet pairing requests. Campers are expected to make new friends and share in group goals as we emphasize the development of life skills through team building and group activities. We do not try to keep children from the same school together.
