“My son attended Child's Play camp and fully enjoyed his time there. The teachers were welcoming and warm, the space was open and free and the curriculum was just the right amount of play and structure for my child. He loved the idea of acting stories out while being able to change the plot spontaneously! What a wonderful program this is for young imaginations to develop into rich storytellers themselves! We are incredibly grateful to Child's Play for opening up a whole new world to our son. Thank you!”
Lexy Casano-Antonellis
“My 5-year-old twins have been attending Child's Play NY camps for two years, and it is always a truly magical experience. I see them blossom a little bit each time and can see that they are tapping into feelings, self-expression, and imagination in new ways. Most importantly, they love it. There is so much joy!”
