hipps CDC's Summer Programs provide nearly 1,000 children and teens with a wide range of exciting and educational activities: day camps, sleep away camps, sports programs, environmental education, leadership development, internships and community service. These critically needed programs are offered in at-risk communities where families often have no summer options for their children other than dangerous and unsupervised urban streets.
Our summer youth programs are offered in West Farms and Morrisania in the Bronx and the Bellevue South neighborhood in Manhattan. We focus on fun, educational enrichment, and emotional growth under the supervision of caring adult mentors. Field trips to museums, aquariums, state parks and recreation centers broaden the children's horizons. For many children this is their first experience out of the city where they are able to swim in a lake or take a hike in the woods. Their summer activities introduce campers and teens to new ideas, build their self-confidence, encourage new friendships, and provide them with memorable experiences.
