Frequently Asked Questions
What is the camper/instructor ratio and how do you group children?
Can my child be in a group with a friend or a sibling(s)?
Yes, but it depends! Campers must be entering the same grade or within one grade apart. We ask that each family fill out the “Friend Request” area during registration. We will always do our best to accommodate friend requests, but can not guarantee campers will always be placed in groups with their friends.
What hours is camp?
What should my child bring to camp?
What should campers wear to camp?
Campers should wear comfortable sneakers that they can move in and clothes they can play games in. Younger campers are encouraged to pack an extra set of clothes to leave in their cubby. Be sure to pack appropriate water gear for swimming/water activities.
Who are your staff?
FunFit Kids staff members include trained athletes, seasoned coaches, aspiring and experienced teachers, performing artists, camp enthusiasts, and above all, dedicated youth development workers. We share a common goal to provide positive experiences and opportunities through sports and creative play.
Are there make ups?
No. There are no make ups during summer camp. There are no refunds or discounts for being absent due to sickness, vacation, inclement weather, other programming, or any other reason including moving, unexpected circumstances, etc. A camper’s weeks are able to be switched pending availability (price may vary). All transfers must be made before June 1st. Camper weeks cannot be transferred to another child.
Is lunch or snacks provided?
For Major Athletes (ages 5-10), campers must bring their own nut-free lunch daily. FunFit Kids will provide snack twice a day.
What happens if it rains?
We have contingency protocol that includes tracking the weather daily. Our camp director will contact families ahead of time to notify any changes in the schedule. Rainy day schedules will take place at 550 West 110th Street at our FunFit HQ. All campers will be dropped off and picked up from this location on rainy days. If it rains in the middle of the day we will make a judgment call in real time and notify parents if pick up will be from FunFit HQ. If the weather becomes dangerous (according to NYS guidelines) we will cancel camp for that day.
What is your refund policy?
Please refer to our policy page.
What medical staff do you have?
Each camp has a designated Health Director. In addition, the majority of our staff is First Aid, AED, and CPR certified. We also have an RN on call during the Summer season should we need to consult further. FunFit staff members will reach out to families immediately should a medical emergency arise.
What are your Covid 19 guidelines?
Please refer to our Covid 19 guidelines page.
My child has allergies and needs to have an Epi-Pen nearby, what should I do?
Please notify us about any allergies by filling out the specific allergy section on the health form. If need be please bring an Epi-pen with you to camp, clearly labeling it with your child's name. Speak to the camp director about the specific allergies so that we are able to educate their counselors. In the case of an emergency, our team will assist with Epi-pen application.
Do you offer swim lessons?
Yes, we offer swim lessons during our open swim sessions, led by a dedticated swim instructor. Swim lessons are at an extra cost of $60 a lesson.
