The in-person New York Aquarium Camp is back this year and offering weekly aqua-based activities for campers from 9am to 3pm. Kids in first and second grade can enjoy Aqua Science where they’ll learn about marine life, explore beaches, and have up-close animal encounters. Third, fourth, and fight-graders get an equally cool experience. Those campers will learn not just about the animals, but also their habitats. They’ll use hands-on projects, exhibits, and more to understand how marine life has adapted over the years. Ages 5–10.
One of the many joys of being a kid is that when school’s out, you get about three months of freedom. As adults, we know that three consecutive months of vacation are rare even if you’re a teacher (lesson plans, anyone?). However, kids can use that time to play sports, paint, and explore. If you put your kid in a summer camp, then they have even more activities to choose from.
New York City has a lot to offer. There are benefits to living in the most populous city in the country. It leaves you with a lot of options when it schools, after-school programs, and summer camps. We did our best to narrow down the array of camps into this diverse, fun, and balanced list. After looking at these camp offerings, you’ll be longer for the days when you were a kid.
It's time to make summer 2021 one for the books!
