At Child’s Play NY, our mission is to empower the next generation through the theatrical arts. Through our programming, we uplift student voices, ignite curiosity, and center compassion. We seek deep truths about the characters we embody, and the stories we tell. The work is both a mirror for self-reflection and a doorway through which we travel for a deeper understanding of other perspectives. Our Brooklyn-based studios are spacious, air-conditioned and well-ventilated. Our theaters for grades 2-6 have stages that elevate our final performance for friends and family.
Child’s Play NY camps are helmed by professional actors with years of education experience. These artists are nurturing, creative, and charismatic teachers who delight in sharing their passions with young people. Our camp teaching artists are the same educators who work in Child’s Play NY programs at all our partner schools during the school year. You can feel great about entrusting your child’s artistic education to them for an enriching summer camp experience!
