Usdan Offers Children of First Responders $1000 Discount for Summer 2019

The discount is a way to celebrate and thank the first responders that stopped the fire that struck Usdan in Summer 2018.

On August 14, 2018 a fire at Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts destroyed two historic studios and impacted other buildings and systems throughout the campus of the critically acclaimed summer day camp for the arts. The damage was limited because of the fast and professional work of the Suffolk County fire and police officers. As Usdan’s way of saying thank you for the efforts of the Bravest and Finest on that day, and every day, Usdan is offering a special discount to the children of First Responders throughout the region to attend Usdan for the summer of 2019. New campers can receive $1,000 off seven week session tuition and $500 off 4 and 3 week session tuition, while availability lasts.

“It’s agonizing to watch something you love on fire - to feel the heat and smell the smoke - but during that experience we knew we were safe and that the campus was being taken care of, thanks to the swift and strong efforts from the first responder community.” says Lauren Brandt Schloss, executive director of Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts. “For more than 50 years, the fire, police, and emt from this region has kept Usdan safe. We are so grateful for their work on our behalf and that of the entire community and honored to offer this token of our appreciation for their work.”

This special celebration will launch on February 12 at the New York Open where Usdan will sponsor the First Responders’ Night at the Open’s Wolf Pack Ninja Arena at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Pavilion.

Usdan offers 3-, 4-, and 7- week camp sessions with focused, joyous instruction in Visual Art, Dance, Theater, Music, Creative Writing, Nature, Chess, and Recreational Arts. The 2019 Camp Season will run from July 1 through August 16.

Nassau and Suffolk Fire, Police, and Emergency personnel can take advantage of this special offer by emailing [email protected], or calling 631-643-7900. Proof of affiliation required.
