Downtown Day Camp Now Serves K - 8th Graders!
K - 8TH GRADERS: Celebrating its 19th season this year, Downtown Day Camp is thrilled to announce four new camp programs. In addition to our ever popular K-4th Grade Division offering swimming lessons, organized field sport instruction, arts, crafts, karate, tennis, drum classes, song shows and more, we now have the following 5th - 8th Grade Options: General Camp, Sports Camp, Performing Arts Camp in partnership with TADA! Youth Theatre, and our Belleayre Mountain Sleep-Away Camp! These programs have been added to help provide the types of enriching activities 5th-8th grade children need. The choices are designed to cater to the interests of campers as they mature and learn more about what activities they really enjoy.
Our Downtown Community Center has 30,000 square feet of air conditioned activity space. The Center includes a 75 foot pool for swimming lessons, two large art rooms, a movement/dance studio, and specialized age-appropriate activity rooms. The camp will continue to use the Battery Park City and Pier 40 Ball Fields for outdoor sports and take trips! Please see our website for a description of all activities and a registration form! Hurry, because grades and sessions fill up fast.
Belleayre Mountain Nature Camp (a one-week sleep-away program) is in a beautiful Catskill wonderland only 125 miles north of NYC. Children enjoy fresh air, magnificent foliage, and clean lakes and rivers. The emphasis is on environmental education while participating in great outdoor activities right at their doorsteps. Join friends and familiar Manhattan Youth staff members for a fantastic nature adventure week at Belleayre! See our website to find out about this exciting one-week option, where children do sports, art, swimming, woodworking, hiking, fishing, and participate in nature and team building programs. Bob Townley, Manhattan Youth and Downtown Day Camp's Founder and Executive Director, is leading the upstate camp week personally. Campers will never forget the great time they have with Bob upstate!
