Our Day Camp is more than a place where children simply play. We are a community of dedicated educators who aspire to make a profound difference in the lives of children. We are committed to the well-being of each camper and we want you to feel secure that your child is happy and well cared for!
Day Camp Groups:
All New “Guppies!”
Pre K Program, must be Age 4 by June 1st
The Guppy program will be run in conjunction with the Tadpole program by a NY State certified teacher. The focus will be readiness for Pre-K and/or Kindergarten within the 4 domains of childhood development: cognitive, socialization, language and physical skills, all in a nurturing and fun environment that only Knox Summer Adventures can provide. Our Guppies will follow a schedule that is similar to the Tadpoles including their own learning space, Arts, Dance, Swimming (lessons), Beach Trips, and more! Please reach out to the Summer Programs office to find out more and enroll your Guppy TODAY!
Your child must be 4 years old by June 1, 2020 to enroll
Your child must be fully “potty trained”
There will be no exceptions to these guidelines
This coeducational group of campers have their own learning facility and take part in age-appropriate specials throughout the day. The Tadpoles swim twice daily in our in-ground swimming pool. A certified teacher and counselors organize and monitor the day’s activities, helping the Tadpoles to prepare for the fun of the upcoming school year. NOTE: Only age-appropriate campus activities that are safe and fun for Tadpoles are offered to this age group.
Entering 1st & 2nd Grades
These campers are grouped by gender and have the opportunity to play sports-oriented games, explore art and science and become acquainted with the excitement of kayaking on Stony Brook Harbor. Daily swim lessons are also included, and trips to the beach are a favorite of the Minnows. Both certified teachers and senior counselors work with these campers to provide a safe and enriching experience.
Entering 3rd & 4th Grades
Sailfish groups are separated by gender and enjoy intramural sports with a greater emphasis placed on teamwork and sportsmanship. Sailfish also enjoy all of the aquatic activities our waterfront campus has to offer, along with a daily rotating schedule of activities that enrich the mind and body.
Entering 5th & 6th Grades
These campers participate in a wide variety of sports and activities. Same-gendered grouping allows flexibility for the groups to choose their favorite games during meeting times. Dolphins also spend time kayaking on the Harbor, swimming in our in-ground swimming pool and participating in a rotating schedule of engaging activities.
