Upper Camp

Rising Grade 4 – 8

The Upper Camp is uniquely designed to meet the needs of children ages 9 – 14.

Within our air-conditioned spaces, each group is equipped with both challenging and enriching materials.

  • Applied Science

    The Applied Science program challenges campers to use critical thinking and problem solving through coding and technology. This program focuses on conducting experiments both in the classrooms and outside of camp. Specialists work with the campers to conduct a focused study of materials that the facility has unique access to.

    June@Home: In June, our programs will be in a virtual format, much like the Spring@Home and Bank Street Arts and Recreation days.

  • Sports, Fitness & Fun

    While the Sports, Fitness & Fun program is located in Bank Street’s beautiful gym on 112th St., campers will also be using our many local parks such as Riverside, Morningside, and Central Park, all of which are less than four blocks away. Rather than focusing on competition, games will focus on individual skills, teamwork, and total body coordination. This program is coed and all skill levels are welcome. Each group has snack time, outdoor play, and age-appropriate rest/quiet time.

  • Cabaret Ensemble

    Campers participate in a variety of theater activities, covering several areas of performance and art, including singing, dancing, writing, and improv, allowing campers’ creative impulses to run on all cylinders.

    This program engages the full imagination as campers construct a piece of theater from scratch. Throughout the session, campers will build upon source material to develop the script and songs, design and create production elements, and rehearse the project for a final culminating performance. During each step of the artistic process, campers will be asked to share, discuss, compromise, and play, fostering a collaborative environment that awakens and celebrates everyone’s intrinsic originality.

  • Film Writing and Directing

    The Film Writing and Directing program offers campers the unique experience of creating their own short films from script to screen. Counselor’s help campers develop and write their shorts in proper screenplay format. Campers film and participate in each other’s work, before editing their pieces in iMovie. By the end of the session, campers will be proud of their final product, present it to other campers, and have developed the skills needed to make future films on any Apple computer.
