Event description:

Upon entering, children 6 and up are permitted to play free while their parents and caregivers are directed to remain outside. Trained playworkers are inside “The Yard”  supporting play and the use of hand tools such as saws, hammers and shovels. Families with children under 6 are invited to the family adventure play area where children and parents can explore materials and play together. 

Now in its third year of operation, play:groundNYC will be hosting a summer camp at ”The Yard,” including a Girls Only week, with two scholarships available per week throughout the summer. Campers experience the benefits of being at a camp on a car-free, zero waste island, a truly unique experience in New York City.
