Participants in our full-day summer camp are registered by age-appropriate groups based on the grade they are entering in Fall 2021. Campers will participate in summer activities for kids, including music, art, cooking, animal care, science, and gardening. They will also play sports and games with a sports specialist, walk to the playground, and participate in swimming at the 92nd Street Y. Swimming lessons are instructed by Red Cross-trained lifeguards and each child will be tested on their swim level and placed into appropriate groups. Campers will garden on our terrace, which is incorporated into cooking classes and animal feedings! Two times a week our groups will walk to The Art Farm petting zoo to explore, touch, and interact with our many animals. Campers in these groups will participate in electives twice a week where they can choose fun crafts and activities such as jewelry-making, scrapbooking, woodworking, drama, sports, and engineering. Weekly activities and special events will be centered around weekly themes such as Superhero Week and Exotic Animal Week.
This Summer we are thrilled to offer the exciting world of Mad Science to our older campers entering Grades 1-6. The Art Farm will be partnering with Mad Science the world’s leading provider of FUN SCIENCE for children. Their interactive programs include a blend of education, hands-on experiments, along with entertainment, guaranteeing that children have a great time while they learn. Campers will participate in science themes such as “Crazy Chemworks”, “Phreaky Physics” “Red Hot Robots” and more.
Monday through Wednesday children entering grades 1 through 6 will take part in a 3-hour science workshop led by Mad Science instructors. Each group’s lead teacher will be with them the full day and be apart of all activities.
Campers enrolled in five days a week will participate in all activities The Art Farm camp has to offer. Cooking, Gardening and Music will take place one day a week, while sports will be 3 days a week and swimming 2 days a week. Please refer to the schedule above.
Please pack a nut-free lunch for your child or buy one through our lunch program. All campers will receive a healthy snack including fresh fruit at the end of the day before pick up.
