On Friday, August 8, close to 900 Phipps Neighborhoods summer campers got together at Crotona Park in the Bronx to celebrate our annual All Camps Day.
This year’s event focused on the College Bound and Beyond theme. Our young campers began the discussion of college education, and older campers explored various college campuses. Campers shared the history of the college, areas of study, college life and more. This year our camp sites represented Brown University, Temple University, Fisk University, Binghamton University, Arizona State University, Auburn University and Stanford University.
The day-long event included a banner parade showcasing each camp’s college, a cafeteria challenge, a knowledge bowl where campers went head-to-head in an academic competition, and a half time performance competition. At the end of the day, awards were presented in various categories.
Another focus of this year’s summer camp was literacy. As of All Camps Day, our campers had read over 2,700 books and counting!
