Summer will be here soon! A full day of physical and cultural activities taking advantage of our great city!
Summer vacation always seems to sneak up on everyone, what are the kids going to do for nine whole weeks?
We created our Summer Program to help, giving kids an outlet for fun, tons of physical activity, socialization and exploration throughout the summer.
Our summer program engages kids all day long, giving busy parents the relief they need while allowing kids to have a blast during their time away from school. Our summer camps are field trip based, taking advantage of all our great city has to offer. Our focus is physical activity and exploring our local landscape in and around LIC. We visit museums, urban farms, parks, sporting arenas and have special guests with expertise in art, theater, cooking, music, history, tennis and gymnastics to name a few. Weekly we visit the Boys & Girls Club Pool and the Murray Playground Fountains. Our goal is to explore everyone's interests and passions all the while developing our physical literacy, feeding our intellectual curiosity and growing our emotional intelligence.
