  • Lunch

    Your camper will be provided with both lunch and a snack but campers are welcome to bring lunch from home, but only those that do not need to be heated up.

    If you choose this option, it is imperative that you keep in mind that we are a nut-aware camp and we do not allow nut products of any kind. The term “nut-aware” applies to every space at camp and any trip destinations. Please do not bring nuts of any kind.

    While sensitive to the needs of children with nut allergies, Bank Street College cannot guarantee a 100 percent nut-aware environment but will try to accommodate children with these allergies. The School for Children has designated nut-aware classrooms/lunch tables with appropriate signage. Parents of children with such allergies are required to provide the Health Office with written medical documentation, instructions, and medications as directed by a physician.

    The camp will provide snacks for campers in the morning as well as in the Extended Day Program. Fresh fruit and crackers are provided for a snack and, in very hot weather, juice will be provided as well.

    Please notify us in writing of any dietary or allergic restrictions before camp starts. This information should already be on your registration page. If it is not, please log in and add it to your account.

    Middle Camp and Upper Camp eat hot lunch at the main Bank Street School.

  • Transportation and Bus Service

    Bank Street Summer Camp offers morning and afternoon bus service from the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Inwood, Washington Heights, and Riverdale. See our Transportation and Bus Service Page for a tentative schedule and Transportation Protocol.
