Event description

Description

WE ARE CURRENTLY AT CAPACITY FOR CAMP! If you would like to join our waiting list, please email liz.collier@rysec.org.

Ages 5-9

Join us for some fun, cooperative and creative activities before the school year starts again! Parents are welcome to stay and participate or observe. Growing Ethics Day Camp is directed by Jackie Davis, MSW, a parent-educator who is great with kids; and some awesome supporting adults and teens!

We are excited for our third year of camp! We are still finalizing our special activities for camp 2019. Last year, our visit from the Bronx Children's Museum bus was super fun! Stay tuned for more details about Camp 2019.

We do not have separate age groups at camp, but we do organize some small group activities. Your 5-year old will be interacting with 9-year olds, but not always in a large group setting. Many of our activities are outside, so we encourage campers who like outdoor play and exploration.

In 2017, our camp was featured in the Riverdale Press.

9-11:30am: Earth Avengers (addressing a different topic/theme each day)

  • Gardening/Composting

11:30am-12:15pm: Ethics Cafe
