Summer Camp Registration

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis after the second Saturday of January, camp reunion weekend. Please include your registration fee and mail registration form to secure a space for A.C.T.'s upcoming season. Within 10 days of receipt of your application, we will send you a written confirmation indicating camper's placement in the appropriate program. A welcome letter will follow.|

Refunds OR credits will not be granted once camper is enrolled. The Registration Form lists all enrollment requirements and penalties. Please read the stipulations and be sure to sign the form in the three indicated places.

We warmly invite you to visit our campus before the start of the camp season. Please call (212) 316-7530 to schedule a visit. A campus tour, discussion of A.C.T.ivities and events will demonstrate why families return to A.C.T. year after year.
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.

Camp is accessible by No. 1/9 Subway trains at 110th & Broadway and the No.4,11 and 104 bus lines less than 1 block from the entrance area. For a map of the grounds and surrounding areas see the Location section of our site.   This is no parking on the Cathedral grounds. A.C.T. families in vehicles, as directed by security staff, can stop at designated zones to drop off and pick up campers.

ACT Program facilities are near St. Luke's Hospital. Students must have current medical forms on file before entering an ACT program. You may download the Medical Form from this site. NO CHILD will be permitted to participate in activities without medical forms.


CAMP DAY (9:30 A.M.-4:00 P.M.): Except on the first day of each session, campers should arrive between 9:25 and 9:35 a.m. Because the first half hour of each day is used for orientation and planning, we urge you to ensure that campers arrive on time.

EXTENDED DAY (7:55 -9:15 A.M. AND/OR 4:00-6:00 P.M.): Additional information will be forwarded upon registration: All campers go directly to the playground area and report to their supervisor. On rainy days, campers are escorted to the ACT gym in the Cathedral Undercroft.

DEPARTURES (4:00 P.M.): Campers are dismissed from a designated outdoor area. Some special occasions require dismissal from the ACT gym. Location of meeting sites will be posted near the guard booth.

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.
