CAMBA operates eleven after-school and six summer camp programs in New York City, serving almost 2,400 children in elementary and middle schools. The impact of these programs cannot be overstated. Children who attend after-school programs and summer enrichment camps do significantly better in school academically, socially, and emotionally. For working parents in low-income communities, after-school programs provide a safe and rewarding place for their children while they are earning a living to support their families.
Programs operate during the school year, in the summer, and on most school holidays. Depending on location, we offer environmental, conservation, arts, violence and drug prevention, and music therapy programs with public and private partners. We also partner with the Fresh Air Fund, conducting registration services for their summer programs.
