Summer Camp

An enriching summer experience

Bank Street Summer Camp uses educational professionals and recreational learning to create developmentally focused programs and experiences that are open to any child between the ages of 4 to 16.

This summer, Summer Camp is offering in-person programming throughout July, following one week of virtual programming in June called June@Home. For in-person learning, the Bank Street Summer Camp will follow the same Health & Safety plans that have been developed by the School for Children. Due to necessary safety precautions surrounding safe in-person programming, we are not offering our celebrated swim program this summer. We plan to bring the program back in Summer 2022.

Registration for June 28 – July 9 has closed. Please email camp@bankstreet.edu if you would like to explore registering for Summer Camp starting the week of July 6. There is no camp on July 5.

Where recreation enriches…

  • Community

    Many summer programs operate under what is known as a “progressive” philosophy but few have an approach like the Bank Street School for Children. Our campers build their sense of community every day as they interact with their friends and peers and develop important social-emotional skills.

    Our Approach

  • Social Justice and Equity

    Social justice and equity are important parts of every program at the Bank Street School for Children. At the Summer Camp, staff members follow the same language and approach to instill positive identity development in our campers and a respect and appreciation for the identities of those around them.

    Social Justice and Equity

  • Leadership

    Our staff members develop powerful bonds with campers that last for years. Many campers eventually become staff members themselves and work alongside the counselors they once had. Head Counselors are teachers during the year, often with graduate degrees.
  • Joy

    Learning should be joyful, and Bank Street campers are consistently engaged in programming that sparks their interests and curiosities.

  • Play

    Children need time, practice, and a safe environment to connect with themselves and each other. Bank Street College has spent one hundred years making these goals a reality and the Bank Street Summer Camp has continued this tradition in a recreational summer setting.

    History & Philosophy

  • Courage & Confidence

    Summer Camp provides a safe atmosphere where children feel encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and try new things like sports, theater, and coding, among others.

What Camp Guardians Say
She raves about the food at Bank St! We are delighted at the opportunity for growth and development provided by the LDP. So, the other years were terrific, but this was the right challenge for our daughter at the right time.

What Camp Guardians Say
My son loved creating his own video game in Code camp and he loves the lunch options.
2018 Guardian
Our son enjoyed the weekly trips and looked forward to them. (He) loved the Friday assemblies and popsicles, and he loved taking the school bus to swimming and other field trips. The Pop Ups were a hit, too.
