Our Instructional Steering Committee comprised of New York Edge curriculum specialists with expertise in various academic disciplines (ELA, math, special education, physical education, arts, STEAM) designs New York Edge approved distinct curriculum and themes yearly. The summer camp 2019 theme is “Saving our Tomorrow,” a focus on children inheriting the planet, with proactive suggestions for protecting the earth. Campers will learn about water conservation, alternative renewable energy, and urban landscapes.
