Randall’s Island Summer Camp for Community-Based Organizations
For over 20 years, RIPA has offered a free summer camp program to children, ages 6-12, from Harlem and the South Bronx. During five weeks in July and August, children are given the opportunity to escape city life and enjoy time outside playing on Randall’s Island. The camp offers a wide variety of sports and activities including basketball, tennis, volleyball, kickball, wiffleball, soccer, disc activities, track & field, physical fitness, dance, nature exploration, nature arts & crafts, Capoeira, self defense, biking, FDNY tours, rugby, percussion, softball, and nature lessons at the Urban Farm and wetlands.
Working with a number of Community Based Organizations, RIPA is able to make a very real difference in over 7,000 children’s life each summer. Any Community Based Organization is welcome to apply to bring children to our summer camp. No individual children applications will be accepted.
