Summer at Studio, our innovative and action-packed summer program, runs from the end of school in June through mid-July. Students from other schools are invited to register and join our community. Children may participate in one, two, three, or four week-long sessions. They can choose from four exciting and inventive programs under the guidance of our experienced and caring staff.
Children start their summer days giggling through a range of creative and physical activities, from painting, collage-making, and clay-sculpting, to singing, dancing, and playing instruments. They also build with blocks, jump around in our outdoor yard, and splash in sprinklers.
Children spend their mornings immersed in a variety of fun and interesting projects. On any given day, they may cook delicious new recipes, participate in wood and sculpting workshops, and choreograph expressive dances, plus many other imaginative activities.
Students who stay for the afternoon enjoy playing outdoor games and take swimming lessons four days a week in a nearby saltwater pool.
Children put on lab coats, costumes, and jerseys as they throw themselves into one- week intensives in science, technology, and athletics, and two-week integrative arts programs. Swimming lessons take place four afternoons a week in a nearby saltwater pool.
Children travel to the Ashokan Center in Olivebridge, NY for five days of adventurous and educational indoor and outdoor activities, such as canoeing, hiking, and games, while learning about ecology and natural history surrounded by 372 acres of forests, fields, and streams. Studio’s knowledgeable staff accompany the group and all meals and transportation are included.
The Ashokan Center, located approximately 100 miles north of New York City, is a hands-on environmental education center with a variety of natural habitats and where wildlife flourishes year-round. In addition to the natural elements, the campus also offers an assortment of historic resources, including an old covered bridge, ruins of a mill, and reconstructions of 19th century buildings, such as a schoolhouse and colonial craft shop.
Children sleep in a bunkhouse with indoor plumbing and eat meals family-style in the center’s main building. A wonderful opportunity for a first sleepaway experience.
