2020 Summer Camp is Cancelled due to Covid-19
Unfortunately, we will not be able to run our summer camp this year. Please stay tuned for our After-school and Preschool updates for Fall 2020. Thank you!
Inwood Summer Camp for 2’s and 3’s
Summer 2020 – CANCELLED
Offered in partnership with Scribble Art Workshop, summer camp includes sensory open play, yoga, sign language, and art-making in a small and nurturing environment perfect for early childhood! We’ll begin each morning with a new material to freely explore as we acclimate to the studio. Then, we’ll move into a morning meeting where we’ll greet our camper friends, teachers and counselors. After sensory open play, we’ll enjoy a movement class (either yoga or sign language), then enjoy a healthy snack. We’ll end the morning with an art project using collage, painting, sculpture or printmaking materials. Snack is provided.

Summer 2020 – CANCELLED

Meet the Teachers
Luther Bangert (Let’s Join the Circus, week 7)
Luther has been juggling for fourteen years and has performed in twenty countries. Since moving to the city three years ago he has worked for several after school programs and with The Muse Brooklyn as a juggling teacher. He loves sharing the wonder of circus and creative play with everyone!
Chris Whitney (Survival Skills, week 1)
Inwood Hill Park is Chris’ happy place. When he’s not climbing, planting, or hugging trees in Inwood Hill Park, you will probably find him teaching 2nd grade at the Town School, singing to his plants in his apartment in Inwood, or hiking with his wife. Chris has over 16 years of experience exploring the natural world with kids as a classroom teacher, summer camp counselor, and Peace Corps Volunteer. Chris believes that better understanding nature leads to deeper love, respect, and responsibility to it – The Earth – our home.
