New York Society of Play Summer Camp (Online)

Join us for a summer of adventure, fantasy, intrigue, and splendor!

At the New York Society, we put the safety of the children and staff first.

There are many who do not feel safe sending their children back out into the world with summer camp this year. To serve those parents and keep the children connected and stimulated during this challenging time, we are offering the NYSP Digital Summer Camp.

  • Monday, June 15th to Friday, September 18th (Weekdays)

  • 10:00am EST – 2:30pm EST

The name of the game with NYSP Summer Camp is community. We have made a large effort to make our camp feel like a living space. Before signing up for our workshops, be sure to check out our Workshop Policy.

Bard’s College/Role Playing

“I have seen many mornings in which the sun rises upon the bodies of my enemies. Today, you will have that same destiny.”  — Garmong Kyshoon, Tiefling Monk, Age 10


Our bards are here to put the “role” in role-playing and give a class on acting, character voice, and other basic role-playing skills. And no bard can be caught without a tune, so with our help, your kids will also write an epic song! 


Bard’s College promotes skills like acting, empathy, and problem-solving.


Your kids will work together to build whatever their minds can conceive, in a NYSoP server that remains constant from day to day, so that they can engage in long-term projects. 

Minecraft promotes skills like mathematical literacy (especially geometry), project planning, and resource management.

Making a Dungeon
