Every summer for the past 4 years I have sent my son on the bus to upstate New York to go to day camp.
We did a lot of research and decided for our son’s needs, the 92nd Street Y, offered the best summer camp option. They were know for their great staff, fantastic activities, and the location is minutes away from my parents home!
I love that the city kids get out and enjoy the country life. What that means is enjoying nature and at the same time complaining about all the bugs! We have very few of those here in the big city.
And, as I have written about before, the wonderful community that we have built in the big city, also encompasses this camp! My son’s bus stop consists of many children from his elementary school. His summer camp group consists of boys and girls he has met at the various spring baseball leagues he has been in, and folks from his Hebrew school! I think it is wonderful that we can live in such a huge city and yet see our friends from all over in different places in or lives.
And the camp is phenomenal. He had several different electives this year, chess, cooking, basketball, archery, and many more. The experiences he gets to have at this amazing camp are well worth the money we pay. And yes, my son and his archery skills, will be my Olympics ticket one day!
And now it’s over, This summer is flying by faster than any summer has before. And my son is now a graduate of Camp Yomi. It is a 4 year program, and we completed it. We look forward to having these folks in our lives again, but for now, we thank the 92nd Street Y for providing such a wonderful camp experience for our son.
So thank-you 92nd St Y, you guys did a fantastic job with my son and the other kids, we are very grateful for the absolutely wonderful 4 years we have had!
