Dear Friends,

Welcome to Summer 2017!

Friends Seminary, founded in 1786, is the oldest continuous co-educational independent school in New York City. Bordering Stuyvesant park, Friends educates students in grades k-12. Quaker values and academic rigor combine to create an environment nurturing to both the student and the global citizen. From June 12 – August 4th, the Summer Friends Day Camps adhere to school values with a touch of summertime whimsy for children ages 2-14. This summer in addition to our camps, we are excited to offer several new specialty programs for children ages 4- 14. For inquisitive young scientists we have hands-on exploration with Science Explorers and Needle Arts and Fashion Camp with Handwork Studio. Back by popular demand is Two Cute — Friends’ innovative half-day program for 2 year olds, as well as our acclaimed Pre-school Programs, Wee are Three, Four’s and Fun, and Fives and Fun. For children entering grades 1-5 we offer Creative Day, our imaginative full day camp. The camp day will include individualized swimming instruction with Take me to the Water, creative arts workshops, Karma Kids Yoga, CATS tennis, Live Animals with the Nature Company, weekly drama with Child’s Play NY, music and creative movement, exciting group games and sports, and dynamic and enriching field trips. To round it out, Summer Friends is proud to offer optimal camper-to- counselor ratios. Attend for the summer or come for a week, but don’t miss out.

Sincerely,
Robin Hoffmann
Director of Extended Programs
