Village Kids programs are carefully designed to ensure children are physically active, intellectually engaged, building social skills – and having fun! Our camps offer fitness, sports, chess, science, technology, creative arts, and lots of outdoor playtime. Tennis classes can be added during camp registration as an optional extra.
Outdoor expeditions are an important component of all camps. Groups visit nearby parks such as JJ Walker and the Hudson River Parks and Piers for picnics, sports, water sprinklers, mini-golf, fishing, and other fun outdoor activities.
