Continuing our successful series of outdoor kids camps also when the school starts!
Our summer kids camp idea proved to be a real blast for kids, parents, and us! Daily outdoor activities have sooo many positive effects, which we’ve already started seeing with kids! Improved physical & mental state, huge progress in activity levels, better overall well being, and more naturally attuned sleep rhythms are just some of them. We suggest, let’s continue what we are doing, as we are certainly doing it right!
We are aware that outdoor activities with kids demand some free time and a lot of will, which is especially hard to find during the school year. So, we decided to take care of that and help you by offering after school activities for your little ones! That way, kids can combine individual morning school hours with fun afternoon outdoor activities, which will improve concentration, de-stress, and enhance opportunities to socialize.
Our after school program is very similar to our summer kids camp, meaning we emphasize the outdoors, nature, and sports. Individual outdoor activities like swim and surf instructions, bike-riding lessons, skating, educational play games, and inventive outdoor photography or music crafts will constitute the daily after school schedule.
In light of the current climate that continues to be present in our lives, we want to offer families that are staying in the city and probably have one or two working parents, a way to send their kids to outdoor activities in the afternoon, so that they can be active, but at the same time keep the families safe. We will continue to have a group of individual professionals that will make sure the activities are a blast while also adhering to the safety and precautions standards to keep us all healthy.
You can opt to join our afterschool outdoor activities program in NYC starting with the 3rd week of September. These outdoor activities will run all the way through the month of November.
Age & Group Size
After school outdoor activities program in NYC is suitable for preschoolers aged 4 to 6 and kids aged 6+ to 9 years.
For each separate week, we are aiming to combine two separate groups depending on the age. There is a min 3 and max 5 preschoolers per week and a min 3 and max 5 older kids during the same week with a 5/1 of children/caregiver ratio.
The location will change daily, as we move from the ocean and the beach, into the forest and meadows. We will discuss the exact pick-up location in NYC after the booking (we can adjust pick up location to individuals).
We will communicate the exact locations of an individual activity a week in advance. Activity spots will be chosen in adherence to the state recommendations.
Below is a sample week that will be adjusted based on weather conditions, kids’ age, and the ability to spend time outside.
Skate park / Skateboards and pads will be provided, children just need to bring their own helmets.

Kids Camp ChecklistKids checklist
Daily commutes are organized in air-conditioned private transportation, stocked with endless versions of kids’ favorite songs, will be carrying up to 8 kids per vehicle. We’ve decided that in an effort to try to maximize the limited time we have with the kids in an after school program that we should have one designated pick up/drop off location. The length of the drive depends on the daily location, however, we will be planning for a max 1h ride one way. The comfortable ride home is a great time for kids to nap as well.
There is an option to book daily activities or week-long activities outdoor camp.

The program is supported by:
The group will be small, max 10 children. Staff is required to check their temperature daily and stay home if showing any symptoms while we require the same for children.
Despite the fact that activities do not necessarily require tight physical contact, we cannot guarantee that there will be zero contact. However, staff will be intervening to ensure children are practicing sports activities safely and correctly. If your child or anyone in your close family household is in the high-risk group we do not recommend your child to participate in the camp to avoid any unnecessary risk.
