Summer Programs 2023

New York Society of Play’s in-person Summer 2023 programming schedule is here!

At New York Society of Play, we use games to learn how to be part of a community and foster healthy friendships. Thanks to our social contract, our favorite games teach us about safety, trust, consent, and more!

Every day, students will learn and grow in our game room! With activities like board games, Dungeons & Dragons, and more! We will get to play a mix of old favorites and new challenges.

Outside at the park, students become heroes at Fantasy Frontier! This one-of-a-kind program takes the best parts of sword fighting, improv theater, orienteering, and collecting to create a collaborative, massively multiplayer summer experience like no other.

This year, we are utilizing a new indoor/outdoor hybrid model. Students will spend a period indoors in the game room and a period outside at Fantasy Frontier. All students will be required to have the COVID-19 vaccine to participate. Students and staff alike will be masked at all times, with allowance for mask breaks. Staff to student ratios are no higher than 1:6 during activity periods to promote a safe and attentive environment for all students!

The Game Guide

  • Board Games
    • Play classics such as Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne, and explore new titles like Coup and 7 Wonders. Each week, players will learn a new game, and develop skills including negotiation, strategic thinking, and sportsmanship.
  • Dungeons & Dragons
    • In this tabletop roleplaying game, players take on the role of adventurers in a fantasy world, completing quests and defeating monsters. D&D helps players develop confidence, mathematical literacy, public speaking skills, and more.
  • Fantasy Frontier
    • Our one-of-a-kind game combines the storytelling aspect of role-playing games with the physical engagement of sports. As a result, your child’s local park becomes a fantasy world filled with adventures, peril, and treasure!
  • And more!
