    Written by:

    Finding the perfect summer camp for your little ones can be a challenge, to say the least. Luckily, Hoboken daycare and after-school program Step By Step has a fun-packed solution. During the school year, SBS functions as a daycare program for kids ages six weeks to preschool, as well as an after-school pick-up service for school-aged children. SBS employees pick-up students and transport them to the center for homework help and group activities. Located in the Monroe Center at 720 Monroe Street in Hoboken, SBS offers a number of programs year-round for children up to nine years old, including a summer camp for kids ages three and up; and when school is out, camp for kids ages three and up is in action! Check out how SBS plans to make your child’s summer the best one yet:

    About The Camp

    During the summer months of July and August, the SBS summer camp during July and August provides a significant variety of both fine and gross motor daily activities for campers. Your little ones are encouraged to explore the outdoors by embracing the local Hoboken parks and community. On those rainy summer days, the Step By Step school gym gives reprieve ensuring the fun continues, and weekly swim lessons are held at the Sky Club Pool.

    Weekly themes and field trips are in place to keep the vivacious spirit going all summer long. This summer’s trips include Van Saun Park, the Franklin Mineral Museum, Splashplex, NYC Gazillion Bubble Show, and more. These trips combine excitement and education, extending the classroom to the summer months.
