With there being days off during the fall cycle, parents and children are always looking for something fun and exciting to do throughout the day. These mini-camps offer children a chance to explore and get to know their neighbors while building strong relationships with their peers and teachers. If the weather permits, we’ll be visiting Central Park and museums nearby. Each mini-camp is bursting with creative activities centered on art, science, or cultural theme. We continually develop and add new projects to the rotation, so there is always something to delight and engage newcomers and returning mini-campers alike!
