Campers at World of Discovery Day Camp experience the best summer camp experience of their lives at our wonderful campgrounds, located in the exclusive, shady and cool John Golden ballfields at Crocheron Park in Bayside, Queens. Once at the campground, campers have the options to participate in outdoor activities and sports of their choice including soccer, baseball, basketball, football, volleyball, tennis, dodgeball, kickball and much more! We encourage campers to take full advantage of our fun arts and crafts program as well as our amazingly interesting fun science program designed with incredible kid-friendly activities!
Afternoons are jam-packed with air-conditioned specialty activities such as karate, dance classes, billiards, internet café, and an up close and personal behind-the-scenes look at an ice cream parlor (complete with ice cream tasting!) Specialty activities also include arts and crafts, sports instruction, magic shows, puppet shows, special events, color wars, relay races, tug-of-war, Olympics, tie dying and many more summer camp activities that the campers can’t get enough of!
World of Discovery Day Camp campers swim in the safety of our spectacular swimming pool! Campers swim under the watchful eye of our experienced staff of lifeguards, counselors and swim instructors. Our swim program provides your child with all of the skills necessary to become more comfortable in the pool and eventually learn how to swim – if they do not know how to swim already. Swim instructors work with campers in small groups and even offer 1:1 instruction based on swimmers needs and abilities. Advanced swimmers may use our diving board as long as they pass our comprehensive deep-water test. Our beautiful pool is open exclusively to World of Discovery Day Camp campers and staff as the pool is a private club that is closed to its own members while our campers are there. World of Discovery campers can participate in the swim instruction program that is offered at no additional cost, they may swim recreationally in free swim – or they can split their time between both swimming activities.
Depending on age group, campers will go on 2-3 trips each week to the most amazingly fun and exciting locations for kids that New York has to offer! Each summer our camp staff searches for new trip ideas and locations to bring our campers to so that they can experience the best trips around! We offer a variety of trips / trip locations that are all age appropriate and plenty of fun! Trips for the campers over 10 years old include horseback riding, deep sea fishing, Dave & Busters, Adventureland, Speed Boat around Manhattan and many more! Campers under 10 years old go on several amazing trips including Little Chefs, LazerTag, Whitepost Farms, Ultimate Gaga and much more!
