Sam’s Camp and Swim Club

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 email [email protected]

Welcome to Sam’s Camp & Swim Club – a first encounter with the world of camping for children 2 years – 5 years old. At our Camp we provide a nurturing, educational and fun environment. Located at the Sam Field Center, our program consists of weekly themes, highlighted by special events such as professional entertainment and a special lunch each month for those who attend every day. Outdoor and indoor play activities are designed to increase motor skills and to encourage socialization opportunities.  Our daily swim program is facilitated by a certified water safety instructor, and all children are assessed prior to entering the pool. Transportation is provided by our own mini buses for an additional fee.

We understand the special needs of our Nursery age children and have designed a choice of program schedules.
