Camp Remember


Camp Remember is excited to offer a week-long summer day camp right in the heart of New York City. Calling all kids ready to stretch out with yoga, relax into meditation, roll up their sleeves for snack creation, get sweaty with sports, rock out with music, and get messy in the art studio. And don’t forget the talent show!

In addition to specialized activities, campers participate in these core summer camp elements: 

  • Yoga and meditation
  • Movement and dance
  • Cool Fit Kids
  • Visual arts
  • Music
  • Cooking and gardening.

Camp Remember believes strongly in the power of community. Campers can expect visits from special guests like professional chefs, writers, actors, musicians, athletes, yogi's, artists, and performers.

Remember, it’s cool to be yourself.
