summer arts camp

With a long history of providing arts programming to New York residents, Greenwich House is proud to offer its Summer Arts Camp for young people ages 7-14. Young artists will have access to our historic Greenwich Village buildings, equipped with art rooms and studios. All levels are welcome, the only requirement is an interest in the visual arts. In addition to arts programming, field trips and weekly swim sessions round out the campers experience.

Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program for Teens

Our eldest group of campers, aged 13 and 14, can work more independently from the younger campers, engaging in in-depth art projects, and participate in counselor training workshops so they can learn how to supervise young campers. We hope to encourage maturity and independence in our senior campers and provide an enviornment for growth and self-discovery. Since space is limited, interested teens are required to apply for this program.

Camp Dates July 6 – August 28, 2015


Dear Friends and Neighbors, The history of Greenwich House Music School (GHMS) stretches back to 1905, when we were founded in the settlement tradition to provide arts and cultural programs to help our community members lead more fulfilling lives.

10

We offer diverse programs, including instruction in piano, violin, cello, viola, Suzuki violin, harp, woodwinds, guitar, drums, voice and music theory, as well as early childhood programs in music, art and movement. Our faculty is comprised of seasoned professionals relying on a curriculum that fosters the transition from early childhood programs into private or group instruction. We encourage students to mantain a life-long connection with GHMS, returning year after year to continue their studies. We hope you will join us; exciting things are happening here!
