Camp

The Art Farm in The City Summer Camp

at Trevor Day School, East Campus

June 27 - August 19, 2016

We've grown!

We are excited to offer camp in a new state-of-the-art facility at the Trevor Day School East Campus
on 95th St between 1st and 2nd Ave.

We will now be offering more age groups with the same exceptional programming we are known for. The Art Farm will be offering a full-day and half-day camp experience for ages 3-9 years old. All children will get hands-on experience learning about our live animals. Full-day groups will take walking trips to our indoor petting zoo several times a week and our half-day campers will receive passes to visit The Art Farm with their family. All campers will garden and enjoy outdoor activities on the terrace every day.

Every camper will enjoy cooking with us as we introduce our farm-to-table lessons that coincide with our gardening. Full-day campers will swim at the 92nd St. Y and all groups will participate in many physical activities including indoor soccer and games. All of our art will revolve around our weekly themes which will include special events.

Our weekly themes include: Mini Olympics, Safari Adventure, Under The Sea, Circus Mania, Blast Off Into Space.

You may pack a lunch or purchase one. We are offering lunch through Red Rabbit, a healthy organic nut-free school/camp lunch program. Hot meals are offered for all groups for $7/day including juice or milk. Groups are based on 15-18 children with 3 teachers. We offer a 10% sibling discount.

Every week, the children get to participate in a weekly theme event which takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday so all campers can participate in the fun.
