Henry Street offers several summer day camp experiences — Camp Henry and Summer Arts Camp — for children ages five to 18.
Camp Henry (American Camping Association Accredited)
Camp Henry Day Camp, was named one of the city's best summer camps (last year's article) by Time Out New York Kids, offers a wide range of educational and recreational enrichment activities for children ages four-and-a-half to 13. Campers enjoy daily activities such as arts and crafts, music, drama, sports and swimming. The campers have trips around New York City and the tri-state area, including visits to museums and amusement parks, bowling alleys and other interactive sites.
Staffed by a team of committed counselors and instructors, many of whom serve as group leaders in our After-School Programs during the school year, Camp Henry fosters self-esteem, respect for others and an appreciation of the arts. The camp is licensed by the Department of Health and accredited by the American Camping Association. Financial aid is available on a sliding scale for eligible families.
Camp Henry runs for six weeks, from July 7, 2014 to August 15, 2014. Weekly sessions are available, and discounts are offered to returning campers, campers' siblings, and to those who refer a friend. Early drop-off and late pick-up are available for an additional fee.
Barbara L. Tate Arts Camp
Ignite your child's creative spark this summer at the Abrons' Arts Camp. We offer progressive, experiential learning in dance, music, theater, and visual arts. Our students experiment alongside professional artists, think critically, share meaningful reposes, and embrace curiosity. Extended day classes provide additional opportunities to advance arts learning and expand creative exploration.
Camp enrollment is offered in seven, five, four, or two week sessions for children ages 6-12. The Barbara L. Tate Arts Camp begins June 30, 2014 and runs through August 15, 2014.
