Kuei Luck Summer Camp
The Kuei Luck Experience
In its 16th season, Kuei Luck Summer Camp provides children an opportunity to advance academically and socially during their summer break. While the day camp’s core goal is preparing youth for the upcoming school year, we also focus on building soft skills that are crucial to youth development and future success. We emphasize the following core values: confidence, community, camaraderie, grit, and respect.
Campers spend their mornings engaged in rigorous lessons, discussions, and activities that align with the Common Core Learning Standards. In the afternoon, they choose from a robust roster of activities, such as sports or crafts sessions like Pottery, or enrichment courses like Robotics and Writings. The morning academic courses keep their minds sharp for the new school year, and pursuits outside of the traditional classroom setting flex their creative muscles and hone in on their passions.
As the world becomes smaller with globalization, competition has become fiercer. Summer break has become a critical time to empower youth to be able to rise up to the competition.
Not only do children need to keep their minds sharp academically, but they also have to further develop P21 skills, such as critical thinking and collaboration. These abilities are often developed outside of the classroom, and crucial for future college prep and career readiness. We believe a traditional camp setting—complete with group exercises and room to explore creative, team building activities—helps our youth cultivate the soft skills they need to become independent, confident, and well-rounded individuals.

From Mondays through Thursdays, campers learn coursework in a traditional classroom setting to prepare them for the upcoming year. With a ratio of 25 campers to 1 teacher, our small classroom size gives each child adequate personal attention. Additional counselors are also available as needed to assist in classrooms.
Following a morning of classroom work, we take our campers into a traditional camp setting with roughly 30 fun-filled activities, including Pottery, Basketball, Cooking and Game Design. Campers pick two activities to participate in on alternating days. Performing arts related activities, such as Hip Hop, perform at an end-of-summer final showcase for family members.
Fridays are special at Kuei Luck. Campers start the day with morning assessments, which allow teachers to see how much of the material they have retained from the week. For the rest of the day, children enjoy various planned activities as a class. These activities vary every Friday and expose campers to experiences they may not have chosen for themselves during the week. We believe summer camp is a perfect time for children to get out of their comfort zone and try new activities—they often end up having a blast.
Breakfast & Lunch
The NYC School Foods program provides Breakfast and Lunch at camp; menus will be published in late May. If campers have dietary restrictions, we are unfortunately unable to make any adjustments to the menu. However, our camp EMTs are there to supervise your children during lunchtime to ensure that they are putting the appropriate food on their lunch trays.
Please note that we are not a peanut-free school, so campers with peanut and other nut allergies sit at a nut-free table.
