Summer Camp Program Opens Farmingdale, West Islip Locations


The "most affordable" summer camp program on Long Island has plans to open two new locations—Farmingdale and West Islip—in time for camp this summer. Hosted at St. Killian School and Our Lady of Lourdes School, Camps 'R' Us is fully equipped with opportunities for indoor and outdoor activities.

Camps ‘R’ Us, a summer day camp program, will open two new camp sites for the summer 2013 camp season: St. Killian School in Farmingdale and Our Lady of Lourdes School in West Islip. The program prides itself on being the most affordable summer camp on Long Island. “Our mission is to provide the best summer camp at most affordable price,” says Jason Turnier, managing director. “We want families to be able to afford to come to our camp without breaking the bank.”

To ensure that all children have the same experience, all seven Camps ‘R’ Us locations have identical programs ranging from Tiny Tots for ages 3-4 up to the Voyagers program for teenagers in grades 7-9. Field trips are included in tuition and children have an opportunity to visit popular venues like the Long Island Children’s Museum or attend New York Mets game. Each camper division has its own unique trips based on the camper’s age.

Both camp sites are fully equipped with a large air-conditioned gymnasium, a large multipurpose room, numerous classrooms with private bathrooms, a large children’s playground with blacktop basketball court, and grass athletic fields.
