Join us for an early preview of our summer program!
Campers will save the day with our original, one-of-a-kind Live Action Role Playing Game, which incorporates elements of foam swordplay, item collecting, cartography, orienteering, arts & crafts, and so much more! Your campers will take on the role of heroes and go on missions which will improve the quality of the fantasy world they will play in!
Before lunch, campers will get active with our Foam Sword program, taking part in cooperative and team-based competitive games including Capture the Flag, Jedi vs. Stormtroopers, Wizard Wars, and more!
After lunch, campers will sit down with our master storytellers to dive into a pen and paper Role Playing Game in the style of Dungeons & Dragons! Your camper will take on the role of a main character in settings such as Marvel, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and more! Role Playing games are a valuable exercise in problem solving, arithmetic, reading comprehension, and public speaking.
Our camp is bound by a social contract championing the traits which constitute a healthy and inviting play environment- trust, consent, cooperation, respect and safety! These values are at the heart of each activity we do here at the New York Society of Play, and our campers exemplify these values as well!
This Summer, we are making several changes to make camp as safe as possible given the COVID-19 crisis. Camp will be capped at 18 children per day, divided across 3 to 4 instructors, to ensure safe group sizes where our campers will get all the care and attention they need to have the best experience possible! While our camp will primarily take place outside, We also have access to indoor space for when the weather gets a bit too intense to be out in the park. In addition, we will be following all CDC and state guidelines on social distancing, mask wearing, and sanitization.
