Marymount Summer is a co-ed day camp celebrating over 30 years of summer enrichment for boys and girls in the heart of New York City. Marymount Summer offers a day camp, science camps, and drama camps, all of which include weekly field trips, outdoor play, and swim instruction. Camp runs for five weeks, from June 26 to July 28, 2017, and campers may register for individual weeks. The camp is housed at Marymount School of New York’s Fifth Avenue Campus, located directly across the street from Central Park and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

 

Our youngest campers, ages 3.5-6, participate in World Cultures Day Camp, an inventive early childhood program that inspires creative play and encourages discovery. Campers will explore a different country every week, learning about the language, cuisine, art, culture, customs, and celebrations that make each nation unique and beautiful.
