A TYPICAL CAMP DAY AT CAMP 510

CAMP 510 is an active verb environment where CAMPers create, make, grow, play and share.

In this diverse urban day camp community, unique projects are combined weekly for an immersive exploration of thematic artistic processes. Each day begins with morning circle time, a space where we shape our community, and create as a group, the atmosphere and guidelines by which we extend respect to those around us. Structured creative project times of the day are punctuated with free play time, quiet time and choice activity time.

The CAMP day is from 9am-3:00pm. Extended Day (Club Time) hours are available from 8:00- 9:00am and 3:00pm-6:00pm.

Not familiar with Park Day School? Look for CAMP 510′s colorful flags, banners, and posters as you enter through the 42nd Street gate.

The XP projects also last from 9am to 3pm, so the day length is the same as for the other CAMPers, with the exception of our Week 3 (July 3-7), when our XPs run until 4pm. If you have further questions about any XP project, please do not hesitate to contact us at youandme@camp510.com
