This camp is what childhood summers are all about! Children explore Thornden Park’s many features, enjoy outdoor activities that integrate nature, art, science, and language arts, and come home exhausted and happy.
Weather permitting, there will be daily swimming for Camps 2, 3, and 4. Camp 1 visits the sprinkler instead of swimming. Camp 5 cannot swim because the pool will be closed by then.
Educators from The New School teach and train support staff for the camps. The Thornden Park Association underwrites part of the cost of Camps 1, 2, and 3. The camp is co-sponsored by The New School and the Syracuse Department of Parks, Recreation & Youth Programs.
