2020 Summer Workshops at Léman Manhattan (9 - 14 year olds)

We are unable to offer Camp Léman or the Léman Summer Workshops this summer. While we had hoped to make in-person summer programming a reality for our families and developed various plans and protocols for this, there is not enough guidance at the local level for us to proceed. Léman Virtual Summer Programs will offer children from PreK through high school with an array of curated academic and enrichment opportunities led by our talented faculty. Virtual courses will be structured in various ways, with some meeting daily for one or two weeks, and others meeting at a recurring time each week (ex: every Tuesday from 10-11 am). Please check back to this site for more information.

In addition to our signature Camp Léman which serves 3-10 year olds, Léman Manhattan offers unique week-long intensives for older children to hone their interests in specialized areas. Campers engage in high-level instruction to deepen their passion and knowledge about the area of focus. Programs are overseen by our dedicated faculty as well as outside professionals and select program partners. Many programs conclude with an event for family and friends to highlight the experience such as a multi-course lunch at a camper-run pop-up restaurant, an instrumental concert, or a drone demonstration

Please contact Steve Levin, Director of After-School and Summer Programs, with any questions or for more information.

Coding & Flying Drones with Drone Genius

August 10-14 or August 17-21
Students entering 3rd-6th Grade

The DroneGenius program has been designed to continue STEM and Coding education while preparing campers to meet the demands of today! Drones are evolving our world in many ways by delivering packages, helping our first responders, providing security, photography and videography, and so much more. DroneGenius has even stepped into the software development space to create an app for today's modern real estate professional. We've developed programs to teach children how to navigate and embrace drone technology while continuing to sharpen their motor skills, math, science, tech and engineering abilities, and our favorites: spatial reasoning and solution engineering, all by coding the drones to complete automated movements. We provide different types of drones that are paired with apps. All equipment is provided! Campers work collectively in teams to achieve new missions such as achieving scavenger hunts only using a drone, drone races, hoovering challenges, and so much more!
