Why go to Camp?


“This was our first foray into camp in NYC and my daughters LOVED it. Both really discovered new strengths and skills in themselves, and became more confident over the 6 week camp period. They enjoyed coming every day to their individual camps and really missed it when it was all over. They made new friendships and can't wait to return next year! So as a parent, I was just delighted as at age 10 and 15, entering a camp where many campers have attended for years, can be scary. But Bank Street was all encompassing. A really nice experience we'll be sure to repeat!”

“(My child) was not a camper but took the leadership development program which she found interesting and I could see the nice changes in her as a result - she suddenly took more initiative with getting things done, helped more around the house.”
