What will kids do at City Camp?
Two days a week, City Camp uses MCS classrooms and local community resources, including Central Park and the Urban Assembly Community Garden, to provide enriching activities. Kids attend classes including movement, visual arts, gardening and a city class aimed at developing a deeper connection with New York City.
The other three days each week, City Campers go on trips to explore the city, including one trip a week to a local pool. Past trip destinations have included the Bronx Zoo, Museum of Natural History, Children’s Museum of the Arts, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Museum of the Moving Image and the High Line.
