Dear Friends,

Welcome to Summer 2018!

Friends Seminary, founded in 1786, is the oldest continuous co-educational independent school in New York City. Bordering Stuyvesant park, Friends educates students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Quaker values and academic rigor combine to create an environment which nurtures our students and teaches them to be global citizens. From June 11 – August 3, the Summer Friends Day Camps adheres to the School’s values with a touch of summertime whimsy for children ages 2-14. This summer, in addition to our traditional day camps, we are excited to offer several new specialty programs for children ages 4- 14. For inquisitive young scientists we will have hands-on exploration with Science Explorers. For the creative crowd try Needle Arts, Fashion Boot Camp, or Sew Tech 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, Fours and Fun, and Fives and Fun. For children entering grades 1-5 we offer Creative Day, our imaginative full day camp. Each 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. Stay tuned to our website for some new technology
programs that we will offer in June. Attend for the whole summer or come for a week, but don’t miss out. We’re getting the bubbles ready for you!
