Summer Camp

Commonpoint Queens has been providing a memorable summer camp experience to thousands of children and young adults in Queens and Western Nassau counties since 1954. Since its inception, we have been dedicated to giving all campers the opportunity to establish life long friends, learn new skills, gain independence and achieve self-confidence.

We offer programs for children ages 2 through 16, with specialty camp options for sports, academics, and children with developmental disabilities. Take a look below at our program options, and get ready to have the best summers of your life with Commonpoint Queens!

Youth Sports Programs

Children need physical activity, and our youth sports classes are the best place to start! Our dynamic instructors will guide your child to reach their full potential through engaging and age-appropriate sports curriculum.

We aim to offer youth instruction toward improving fitness; building skills, confidence, sportsmanship; and establishing the foundation for a lifetime of active, healthy living.
