Camp Henry

Camp Henry (Accredited by the Camping Association & Licensed by the Department of Health)

Give your child (ages 5 – 13) a summer of fun and learning at Camp Henry at Henry Street Settlement on the Lower East Side! We provide educational enrichment to prevent “summer learning loss,” including STEAM projects and engaging literacy lessons, plus arts and crafts, music, drama, sports, swimming, and field trips.

This year’s theme is Legends, Heroes, and Heroines. Each week a different super hero will be highlighted, campers will learn about and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these fictitious figures. This journey will not only explore super powers and ancient mythology, but also incorporate community development, self-efficacy, and positive decision making. Campers will also enjoy weekly films, field trips, project-based activities and theme-based parties.
