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

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 pop-up restaurant run by the campers, an instrumental concert, a drone demonstration, and a film screening.

Léman Summer Workshop information will be available early in 2020. Notify me when Summer Workshop information is available!

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