"Nearly Camp" at the CQY is the perfect way for your child to spend the summer.  This part-time separation program is located within our newly renovated facility in the heart of Forest Hills. Nearly Camp is a safe and nurturing program that is led by warm, caring adult instructors who will teach and encourage your child to socialize with peers and make friends. A low camper-to-counselor ratio provides each child with special individualized attention. Activities including crafts, story time, creative play, music and movement, and play time in our air-conditioned gym are just some of the ways your child will enjoy their summer.
