We had a blast this summer at Urban Dove's Taking Flight Day Camp. For six weeks, over 150 campers joined youth staff counselors and staff to bring summertime fun to East Harlem at PS 57. Camp activities included educational enrichment programs,basketball, softball, and handball, and of course our end-of-summer finale. Campers also went bowling, went to a Yankees game and spent a day at Coney Island.
Our campers then packed up for a week of sleepaway camp at Camp Watitoh in the Berkshire Mountains where they played sports and went swimming in the lake. It was a great time for all!
