From big inventions to mind-blowing experiments, sparks of creativity will fly at camp!

Our nurturing staff, typically current and former Green Ivy teachers along with returning camp staff, provide a caring and supportive environment and create a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere to facilitate connection and friendship. We use a maximum ratio of 5 children to 1 staff member. In the early weeks of camp, we use lower ratios to nurture campers as they adjust to a new experience. Children are in groups of 5-10 campers and generally grouped by age.

During camp your child will connect with peers and with nature, gain personal and social confidence, and make friends. Through hands-on, developmentally-tailored educational activities, children gain confidence, independence, and skills. Our program provides excellent pre-academic and social preparation for children entering preschool programs and rising kindergarteners.

We believe that children thrive when provided with opportunities to connect with nature, and we spend time enjoying outdoor play and exploring our beautiful Battery Park City neighborhood. Children also have the opportunity to enjoy fun in the sun on our private outdoor patio, which features a child-maintained garden and water play.

Early Drop-off and Late Pick-up include spending time with peers and supervised by camp staff. This includes a variety of light activities, including art, soft play in the movement room or on the patio, and storytime.
