Click to report rating    8/14/14   4     5     3     4     5   My son has attended this camp the last 3 years and he loves going back every year. The facilities can not be beat a beautiful indoor pool, where the kids get to swim twice a day. The fields and gym are so well maintained. The activities are average your typical events, basketball, softball, soccer, field hockey and kickball. But they do keep the kids busy with the sports, the arts and crafts, music and dance. The counselors are good, some immature but the ones we have had were very caring. You can't beat the price for this quality of camp. RID: 47851

Click to report rating    7/11/13   3     4     3     3     3   Better for younger kids (under 10) - a bit like a day care with too many kids. It is safe and clean with respectable food. If over 10 and looking for a sports camp there are much better places. Just too many kids or disinterested college kids who are instructors. The main BB coach - Eric - is simply lazy and spends alot his time on cell phone. RID: 45112

     8/13/12   3     5     4     2     2   I worked here awhile ago back in the mid 2000's and I can definitely say the biggest problem here is the camp is just too big. I worked with B-3 one year and we had 45 kids in 1 group!So a kickball game with 22 kids on 1 side doesn't give the kids many opportunities to kick. The size problems extend to the staff as well. The high levels of administration do care but just have too many useless issues to deal with that it drains them down and makes them cranky towards the end of the summer. In terms of the actual counselors, the head counselors are mostly good to great, depending on your group. (I don't care if you're a saint, no person is going to have the patience for Pre-1.) But the normal counselors range from awesome (me) to horrendous. (about 3/4 of them) The average Iona counselor thinks it's "beneath them" to actually play with the kids and want to do as little as possible, as long as they still get paid. They'll even make fun of the counselors who do care. RID: 42341

     7/11/11   1     4     3     1     3   My son went to camp here for two years. First year was decent, second year went way down hill. The counselors are either too young or just indifferent to the kids they are supposedly there to interact with and supervise. One actually told a child on my son's soccer team that he was "useless" because he missed a goal. An 7 year old at camp (this is not a competitive team situation) and he's called "useless"?? Inexcusable. The situation that really was a deal breaker for us though was when I went to pick up my child one day and overheard two "counselors" privately (or so they thought) talking about and making fun of one of the kids. I don't care how reasonable in price the camp is, raise the tuition and get qualified people in there to work with the kids - patience, responsiveness and respect go a long way. Let's just hope that none of them are education majors. My advice - find another camp. RID: 36359

Click to report rating    3/30/08   1     4     2     1     1   The counselors were lazy and talked to my kids about how they were just there for the money. My son was seriously bullied by another child and the counselor was oblivious! I would never recommend this camp to anyone. RID: 21763
