Summer (and Winter) Fun in the City!

Camp Birdy has been running for about six years. It is a week of adventuring and creating during which I and up to six children explore the city, make craft projects, play games, and more! Each day we visit a different neighborhood to taste its food (particularly its ice cream), play on its playgrounds and in its parks, and find its hidden treasures. We aim to become connoisseurs of the city!

Past activities include:

  • giant bubble making
  • face painting
  • costume making
  • “snowball” fights
  • fort building
  • MTA adventure
  • book making
  • stop-motion animation
  • story writing
  • play production
  • stuffed animal making
  • jewelry making
