June 2020: Due to the pandemic, instead of our traditional camp programs (listed below), Commonpoint Queens will be offering CAMP COMMONPOINT!
Camp Commonpoint will take place at four of our agency’s locations, Central Queens (Forest Hills), the Sam Field Center (Little Neck), the Bay Terrace Center and the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds (Long Island). This will allow us to provide a quality in-person summer experience for our campers while still following the best health and safety practices, and offering an enriching program.
With our agency’s experience over the last few months serving as an emergency childcare center for our city’s frontline workers, we feel confident that we will be able to offer a safe and fun environment to help our children and families reconnect with the magic of camp.
Please note: spaces are incredibly limited, and are being offered first to families who had already been registered with us for this summer. For more information, please call us at 718-268-5011 ext 205 or email [email protected]
For more information or to register, please contact Melissa Algranati at [email protected], or call our Day Camp offices at 718-225-6750 ext. 261 or 718-268-5011 ext. 205.
Create lasting friendships, cool off in the pool, enjoy the endless freedom of summer and find your own path in the greater community that camp was always meant to be.
Whether you want to fly across a zipline, score the game-winning goal, or turn your recycled art into a robot, you’ll be able to create a path that’s perfect for you!
Every experience is unique. Every day is something new. Every adventure shapes your future.
Discover the excitement of the great outdoors!

A Quest for Every Age…
Island Quest empowers children of all ages to grow their interests and gives them the rare opportunity to create their own adventure.
Our Travelers (Pk-2nd grade) sample offerings from each of the unique Quests we have to offer. Along our Innovate, Compete, and Seek pathways, we teach campers how to make choices and encourage them to learn more about what they love.
Our Adventurers (Grades 3-6) choose their own Quests each week. They spend 2-3 periods every day in their quest of choice and spend the rest of their day enjoying swimming and other fun group activities. With the freedom to blaze their own path, campers enjoy a more in-depth experience unique to their particular interests.
Our Jetsetters (Grades 7-9) take their Quests on the road. Throughout thrilling personalized journeys, we allow each of these campers the opportunity to both enjoy immersive camp-based activities and explore exciting new destinations.
