  • Theater Workshop (Grades 2-8)

    THEATER WORKSHOP
    Campers enjoy a musical theater program where campers will collaborate with one another and write their own show, book, music, lyrics, and design and craft their own sets and costumes. At the end of the week, campers will perform their piece as actors, dancers, stage managers, lighting and sound designers, and musicians. Along the way, campers also learn the basic terminology of musicals and theater and work hard towards a common goal, and have a good time. Every camper will have an essential role in the creation of the final product. All campers need is a water bottle and a great attitude.

Where recreation enriches...

  • Learning

    While Bank Street Camp isn’t academic we are educational. Our recreational programs are headed by educational professionals in their fields.

  • Creativity

    At camp, we encourage campers to deepen their ideas, extend their thinking and come up with their own story lines, fostering the most essential building block for imagination, helping campers do what they do best: play.
  • Compassion

    As a progressive school, Bank Street is focused on the development of academics, as well as a child’s social and emotional growth. Since camp is open to people outside of the Bank Street School, the School sees camp as a way to advance kindness and benevolence.

  • Fun

    Kids are busier than they ever have been. Over stimulated and overloaded, many families struggle to find time to balance their children’s lives with recreational play and focused exploration. The Bank Street Summer Camp provides time and structure for campers to develop as learners through love of play, creativity and collaboration, all outside of an academic environment.

  • Empathy

    Challenges that arise from group play are viewed as valuable learning experiences that counselors will help navigate and mediate to find both simple and complex solutions. Listening to campers insures better communication between campers and helps everyone feel safe to create and play with one another.
