Camps ‘R’ Us, a summer camp in Valley Stream, wants you to know that it will be celebrating 25 years of bringing kids an amazing summer camp experience this year and invites you to their Valley Stream Open House on Saturday, March 25th and April 8th from 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. at Holy Name of Mary School in Valley Stream. Learn more about their summer program, trips, and more! Summer officially begins in 100 days for our kids here in Valley Stream, so let’s get moving!
The open house will include a detailed campus tour led by one of the Directors, during which parents and campers can preview the facilities that will be in use during the summer. Following the tour, all are invited to share in a Q&A with the tour guide. Printed materials are also available, including the Parent Guide, Calendar and Enrollment Forms.
The open house begins and ends promptly at the indicated times. Presentations and tours begin on the hour, and last approximately 45 minutes. All are welcome. No reservation required.
Each week, campers ages 3 – 15 will enjoy weekly field trips to places like Once Upon a Treetop, Advertureland, White Post Farms, Island Rock, and Bronx Zoo to name a few. Campers also enjoy weekly bowling and swimming outings as well as special themed days.
“My girls love Camps ‘R’ Us in Valley Stream and refuse to consider others,” says Kerri, VS mom of two girls. “I like the long hours and the convenience. The calendar allows you to be prepared and gets the kids excited for trips and themed events. The staff work really hard to make sure everyone has a great time. They are receptive to feedback and make timely adjustments. Hopefully they will start to offer lunch.”
