Session 1 Planet Earth(June 29-July 10)


Planet Earth Camp

Discover and explore the world we live in with the awe-inspiring sights and sounds of the world and its natural beauty. Explore what makes countries unique – natural landforms, animals, and plant life.   Through exploration we excite young minds and inspire student knowledge in science, mathematics, language, and culture.







Session 2 Cooking around the World!  - (July 13-24)


cooking camp for kids


We are trotting around the world and exploring well-known foods and cuisines – Italy, China, Spain, Mexico are just some of the countries we travel to as we learn what foods are native to these countries and see how food is part of their culture.  Children also enjoy learning about healthy eating, and food preparation. Children learn culinary skills while learning a new language!









Session 3:  Bright Colors, Big City – A Modern Art Exploration (July 27-August 7)


 Modern art for kids

There's really no place like New York City as a backdrop for exploring art.  We explore the city as architects and artists as children create and connect with the world of contemporary art in an interactive two-week program. Our unique programs for young artists emphasize learning through direct observation of art and thoughtful activities inspired by permanent collections and current exhibitions from galleries throughout major cities around the world.
