I've done some usual things—I've seen a movie one time. And I've done some things that are just so out of the ordinary for me: I did a hip-hop class, which was so fun. There's just so much variety here.

Experience all that New York has to offer

With fast access to the New York City area, you have a playground to fuel your discovery and explore the wider (and sometimes wilder) world. EXPLO’s New York summer camp gives you tons of opportunities.

River Journeys 

The majestic Hudson River is the setting for memorable EXPLO excursions, from a bicycle tour along its shore to an evening boat cruise full of dancing, refreshments, unbeatable views, and, of course, many, many selfies!

Arts + Sciences

You’ll get the chance to visit some of the world-class museums that call Manhattan home, like the American Museum of Natural History, Liberty Science Center and Planetarium, and Museum of Modern Art. 

Put the “active” in “activity” 

Sailing, paddleboarding, and kayaking tours; a trip to the sports and entertainment complex at Chelsea Piers; the high ropes course at the Bronx Zoo—you’ll have plenty of opportunities for memorable workouts.

Go pro

New York is a renowned sports town, with two pairs of professional football and baseball franchises. Summertime is baseball time, so join a trip to see a Yankees or Mets game, and maybe take a turn in the batting cages while you’re there.

Beach Day

New York City is great, but maybe you feel like getting away from city life for a bit? Join a day trip to the beach and enjoy the sun, sand, and surf.
