Electives* allow campers to choose activities that fit their interests or try something new and different. Our passionate and energetic specialists serve as role models, teammates, and facilitators for our campers, who are able to explore their passions and develop new skills and memories. Each week, our 5- and 6-year-old campers are given the opportunity to choose a different activity for the elective portion of their daily schedule. Each choice period meets for one hour, and campers participate in that elective for a full week. The campers are encouraged to try something new each week, and to explore new interests throughout the summer.


* We are currently working on plans for 2021 and waiting for guidelines from the NYS and NYC Department of Health due to COVID-19, and will update any changes to our elective program as needed.

Electives include:

  • Ceramics
  • Chess
  • Cooking
  • Crazy Constructions
  • Dance
  • Songwriting
  • Sports
  • Storytelling
