Tips to Choosing the Right Summer Camp in Queens, NY: World of Discovery Summer Camp of Bayside, Queens NY

summer camps in Queens NYWhen choosing the right summer camp for your children it is important to consider the facilities.  A great summer camp should have facilities indoor and out.  Outdoor facilities should be safe and have plenty of shade.  Summer camps should have plenty of room for children to run around.  There should be lots of grass and space.  Great summer camps have plenty of fields for campers to participate in outdoor activities.  Indoor facilities are also necessary for times in which it is not desirable to be outdoors.  When the weather is exceptionally hot and humid and when it is raining, the ideal indoor location is air conditioned with lots of space.  There should be an indoor gymnasium so that campers can engage in sports activities while indoors.  It is also great to have a large room with seating and a large screen to show a movie for the kids.  There should also be an area that is large with seats and tables for children to engage in arts and crafts or to play board games.

The pool area is the most important concern of parents who send their children to summer camp.  Water safety is the single most important area of safety.  The swimming pool staff should be headed by a WSI certified staff member.  There should be a team of American Red Cross certified lifeguards at the swimming pool at all times.  A portion of the lifeguards should be responsible for patrolling the pool and another group of lifeguards should be responsible for teaching campers how to swim.  Camp counselors should either be in the water assisting lifeguards with swim instruction or seated at the edge of the pool to assist in patrolling the swimming pool.  There should be a buddy system in place to reinforce swimming pool safety.
