Summer Programs

Summer Camp was a success!
It was wonderful to get children back together in an in-person setting, even with intensive safety precautions. In the words of one parent, “The counselors are amazing, and my daughter is so happy. It has truly been a lifesaver for my daughter, after months and months without any social interaction with kids her own age. We feel totally comfortable with all of the protective measures you put into place.”
We also received unsolicited praise during our Department of Health inspection for our precautions and procedures, which reflects both excellent leadership and plain old hard work. I want to publicly acknowledge Karin Epstein (Director), Angela Sears (Nurse), Pam MacAffer (Operations), and our entire maintenance staff for their tireless efforts in making camp safe and fun during this surrealistic summer.

What people are saying about Summer Programs at The Albany Academies:

"The camp is well organized with good communication to the parents. As a parent, I like the co-ed classes in the summer and the consistent, high quality of the teachers through out the sessions. Our son loves everything about camp!"

"The LEAP program is very unique and my daughter enjoys it every year. I like the fact that classes are taught by teachers, not simply run by counselors. That being said, the counselors play a wonderful role in the program, as well."
"LEAP is a great concept. Variety is extremely fun with opportunity to meet more kids with common interest."
"I love that kids are active all day. My son was always ready for bed. He was so chatty. I could tell he was actively engaged throughout the day."
"The program is well organized. The kids are closely monitored by teachers and staff, and the activities are academic and fun. The teachers really worked to build a rapport with the campers. It was a great experience."
"My daughters had a terrific experience. Best camps they have ever attended!"

The Albany Academies' summer camps are required to be permitted to operate by the Albany County Health Department. The camps and facilities are inspected twice yearly. Inspection reports are filed with the Albany County Department of Health at 175 Green Street, Albany, NY 12202.
