In less than a week, 111 camps will open their doors to nearly 10,000 SASF students across New York City.
This summer’s camp theme is Change Agents: Taking Care of Our Environment. This theme will utilize an interdisciplinary curriculum, which includes STEM, Literacy, Leadership, Arts, and Sports. It will spark students’ curiosity, awareness and empathy regarding global environmental issues related to clean water, recycling, pollution, and taking care of our local communities.
Camps include Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) COMPASS elementary school sites, DYCD SONYC middle school sites, City Council camps and clinics and special initiative sites: New York State Bullet Aid (Summer Bridge Programs), Summer In The City (SITC), Hayden Camps and DOE McKinney Camps.
Exciting trips and events will include:

- ICAHN Stadium Sports Day
- Change Agents Day
“Our summer camps aim to provide SASF students a place where they can both learn and have fun during the summer months,” said Sheila Wells, Deputy Director of Summer Programs. “A mix of activities, field trips, and interdisciplinary curricula such as STEM, will keep students active and learning throughout their time off from school.”
