Sibling & Twin Friendly
We pride ourselves on adapting services to the changing needs of the population we serve. Because of suggestions from families with twins, for example, we have changed our sibling placement policy. The new initiative, twin friendly, offers parents the option to place same age siblings in the same group. Parents must write their request on the registration form. A.C.T. also grants a 10% discount to the second and third sibling enrolled in the same camp session. We hope this lessens the financial burden for families with multiple siblings. Your input is valuable and appreciated.

Afternoon Drop Off
A section for children ages 2-4 years old. Listen to what parents say about ACT in our Parentspeak video.

2014 Summer Camp News

Keeping Cool in 2014 Summer Camp:
Through thier collaborative efforts, ACT veteran staff and friends have come up with new and exciting ideas for summer 2014. Our goal is to enhance our recreational water activites that allow campers to have fun while staying cool under the sun and trees.

Plans include:

  • Expand the July session trip schedule to include visits to other pools and lake sites.
  • Improve the splash area in the lower playground.
  • Add Splash Area time for Prep campers so they can visit frequently to get wet.
  • Voyagers participate in water spray actvites and water balloon launching.
  • Add Aqua Day as an annual theme. Rent several blowup water rides for a day and supplement them with water games and water balloon challenges.
  • Take campers to a water park---either Mountain Creek, Vernon N.J., or Splish/Splash, Riverhead, N.Y.--and extend the camp day to 6 p.m.
  • Expand Mist Zones we use for cooling off and add a new Mist Zone by the A.C.T. Garden.
  • Schedule limited use of pools by Pioneers at the Columbia University and Riverbank State Park.
  • Increase lake time on the camping trip to Stokes State Forest by adding one more day starting Tuesday through Friday of week four.

2014 NEW July Camp Program Features
All group schedules will be modified to include more trips, assemblies and activity periods. 

Gaga Games:
As you probably know, the Gaga pit is a favorite spot. We like it because it is a safer form of dodgeball that keeps everyone actively involved. Campers like it because everyone can play, anyone can be a finalist, and many games can be played in a short time. All groups are scheduled to use the Ga-Ga pit and learn a variety of Gaga ball games.

Preps will have regular visits to the water ride in the lower playground area as well as at the new splash pads.

Xpandaclub: Voyagers and Pioneers will have the opportunity to pre-select a club they can join throughout the July period in addition to their weekly clubs. They can choose to work on:

Costume Design
Video Music Making
Musical Theater: Annie
Mosaic Tile projects
Newspaper/A.C.T. Magazine
Acrobatics and Tumbling
Pottery at a nearby studio.

August Camp happenings

  • Specialty Course campers (3rd grade and up) enjoyed last seasons’ course offerings. They were well received and will be offered again in the 2014. Check A.C.T. e-mails for a few latest updates and the August Camp section on our website.
