Applications for NYC’s free summer camps are open. Here’s how to register #SummerRising
If you have school aged children in NYC check out these summer camp opportunities. There are 110,000 available seats in the program. For this year placement will be weighed on need (vs first come basis) but it probably wouldn’t hurt to get applications in early. More detials from Gothamist:
The program, which offers classroom-based learning and recreational activities to kids across the five boroughs, is by far the largest free summer child care program available in the city, run in coordination between school principals and community-based organizations.
Advocates and parents say it fills a crucial child care need during the summer months, but the program also faced criticism as it got off the ground – particularly over how the limited number of seats were allocated.
