    The Theater campers will also be involved in usual Bank Street Summer Camp fun such as camp wide programs with other Upper Camp groups, overnight trips, and, of course, the Bank Street swim program at the private pool in Riverdale, where campers have both instructional and free swim. Counselors and swim staff work with the same campers each time, individually and in small groups, at appropriate swim levels and with an emphasis on safety. In August, the Theater groups will create small plays in the park on a weekly basis.

Leadership Development Program (9th-11th Grade)

The Leadership Development Program is designed to split the time between learning how to become effective leaders and counselors, as well as spend time as a senior camper. Participants will learn skills for working in and with small groups of campers and some tricks of the trade, such as games, songs and activities, all of which will start their personal portfolio of skills. Participants will learn how to interview as well as develop a strong resume.

Participants will have the skills to become a lifeguard, work at Bank Street Summer Camp, or a different camp, and translate their new skill set into other jobs or other positions of responsibility. At the end of the course they will receive a certificate of completion as well as an evaluation.

This summer we are fortunate to continue to use the space at the Columbia Kraft Center at 115th St. 

July 2nd- Aug 10th (closed 4th)  Leadership Development Program $1,100
