Summer Camp

Lower Camp August Alliance & Daily Swim

Pre-K – Grade 1

In cooperation with Columbia University, the Bank Street Summer Camp is providing weekly programs and daily swim for children from pre-K through 8th grade until August 30, which is called the August Alliance. Like the regular camp programs, August Alliance programs take place in the safe and relaxed setting of the Columbia Kraft Center on 115th St. Any children of faculty, staff, or students at Columbia University and the Cathedral School will receive a discount of 10%. All campers must be potty-trained to be in camp.

  • Animal Village (Pre-K to Grade 1)

    There are multiple early childhood groups during each session, all of which follow the Bank Street School philosophy. Most  Head Counselors for the Lower Camp are teachers at Bank Street School for Children or graduate students from the Bank Street Graduate School.

    Each group has snack time, outdoor play, age appropriate rest/quiet time and daily swim in the outdoor Skyview pool in Riverdale. The Camp’s Aquatics staff instructs the children both individually and in small groups, at appropriate swim levels and with an emphasis on safety. The swim program is not separate from the regular camp programs, and is part of everyone’s weekly program. All campers must be 4 years old and potty-trained to be in camp.

  • Pueblo de los Animales Spanish Immersion (Pre-K to Grade 1)

    The Spanish Immersion groups provide the students with the opportunity to learn, practice and reinforce the Spanish language through a variety of engaging and interactive activities. The focus is on the development of the students’ receptive and expressive language while creating a positive educational experience. By practicing the language both in and out of the classroom, teachers are able to make the campers feel comfortable, and help develop an appreciation and love for the Spanish language.

    Each group has snack time, outdoor play, age appropriate rest/quiet time and daily swim in the outdoor Skyview pool in Riverdale. The Camp’s Aquatics staff instructs the children both individually and in small groups, at appropriate swim levels and with an emphasis on safety. The swim program at Bank Street is not separate from the regular programs, and is instead a part of everyone’s weekly program. Group selections are made upon registration.  All campers must be 4 years old and potty-trained to be in camp.
