About the program: Our program is licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. Each day that your child attends, they will receive breakfast, a boxed lunch, physical fitness activities, creative enrichment programming, sneaky brain exercises (so engaging that they won’t realize they’re learning), and A LOT of fun! We also take several field trips throughout the summer.


Registration: Summer camp registration is currently open. The registration packet can be downloaded and filled out at home or you can pick up a paper copy in the office. Each camper must have an up-to-date vaccination record on file.


Fees: West Side Kids summer camp fees are based on income via the Erie County Department of Social Services Child Care Assistance Program. To qualify for financial aid through this program, you must submit a completed Child Care Assistance Program application to DSS. Applications are available at our office and on the DSS website.

Please review the list of documents that must accompany your application and the income eligibility standards.

About the Program: Project Pathways provides similar activities to our West Side Teens school-year program with an additional focus on post-graduation (aka “adulting”) preparation. “Adulting” prep includes resume writing, interview practice, health insurance navigation, banking, budgeting and saving, and career exploration. We also spend plenty of time in fun activities like sports/fitness/recreation, VR, creative arts, gardening, cooking, Dungeons & Dragons, and more.

Registration: Registration for Project Pathways is currently open. Teens must have a completed 2024 Project Pathways registration packet on file in order to participate. Teens who have not completed their 2024 Project Pathways registration packet will not be permitted to participate in the program. The registration packet can be downloaded and filled out at home or you can pick up a paper copy in the office.

Parent Handbook: All parents/guardians of Project Pathways participants must review the parent handbook before registering.
