Urban Day Camp

Get outdoors in NYC this summer!

Urban Day Camp provides opportunities for elementary school-aged girls to explore the natural world, enjoy the health benefits of the outdoors, and learn about ways to support environmental efforts in their communities—all while having the time of their lives! 

This program reinforces science concepts and combats summer learning loss in exciting and engaging ways. Every day girls will participate in hands-on S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) projects, and go on unique excursions to parks, beaches, and environmentally-related outdoors spaces throughout the five boroughs.

As campers, girls develop strong leadership skills: practicing teamwork, taking risks, and trying new things!  As adults, we know these skills and experiences are essential to girls becoming confident and independent.
