For specific questions about Summer Camp itself, check out our Summer Camp info here

What should I bring with me?

CITs should wear their Everyday Athlete shirt, comfortable clothes and shoes. We also recommend:

  • A change of clothes

  • Water bottle

  • A packed NUT FREE lunch

  • Clothes for water fun

  • A towel

  • Sun protection (sunscreen, hats, visors, etc.)  


What type of snack do you provide?

We provide a healthy snack including one fruit, one vegetable, and something crunchy. While we strive to provide snacks that are enjoyable for everyone we cannot guarantee snacks will always be kosher or gluten free.


How much time is spent outside?

While we will have plenty of fun activities happening indoors, campers should expect to spend most of their day outside in nearby park.  Everyday Athlete looks to encourage campers to find joy in movement in the world around them.


What Parks do you use during summer camp?

We take full advantage of the various parks and Piers right outside our doors! Currently we use Piers 2, 5, and 6.  


What happens if it rains?

Rain or shine we are here to stay! Light rain and drizzle will not stop us from having fun! We do provide a series of fun indoor activities planned in the event of heavy rain, thunder, or lightning!


How long is summer camp?

Summer Camp runs from June 18 - August 31, from 8:30am to 3pm. We're flexible to accommodate your summer schedule: you can join for as much of the full session as you need. We also offer early drop-off at 8am, as well as After Camp from 3-6pm.


What's the difference between summer camp and sport-specific camp?

Summer Camp is multi-sport, while in sport-specific camp, kids choose to focus on training in one specific sport for a full week! Our options include Parkour Intensive Camp, Skateboarding Intensive Camp, and Climbing Intensive Camp. Your child will be able to experience all disciplines for a comprehensive experience!


Where is pickup and dropoff?

Parents have the option to drop off at our Clinton Street location (130 Clinton Street). All pickups must take place at our One Brooklyn Bridge location( 360 Furman Street between Piers 5 & 6). All late drop offs taking place after 9:30 must be dropped off at One Brooklyn Bridge!


What about medications or allergies?

Health and safety is our top priority! Please note all important health information in the health forms. Please also contact us directly if your child will be bringing medication, or if they have a severe allergy to food, insects or anything else.


Are coaches CPR certified?

All current Everyday Athlete staff is CPR certified!
