For 60 years, the Upper East Side’s favorite learning annex and community center, 92nd Street Y, has been making its summer pilgrimage to Rockland County to host a daily getaway. Kids take the bus (pickup locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn) to the nearby suburb for sports (tennis, soccer, yoga and more) and art projects (jewelry making, painting, etc.). When possible, the camp applies a STEM angle to unexpected subjects: For example, children learn about circumference while shooting hoops during basketball. While kids can further test their minds in fun and exciting ways with coding and Lego robotics, and they can dare themselves to new heights with the climbing wall and zip line or by taking a trip down a waterslide into one of the three pools. As one famous amphibious New Yorker said: “Cowabunga!” Ages 5–15.
