New York City is a community of islands. The only borough that is not on an island is the Bronx. We have a complex network of waterways including rivers, bays, and a major estuary, with access to the Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean.

These field trips are educational, physical, and fun. Some are limited to summer months, others are one-time annual events, and others are year-round. They can be combined with other activities to create your own summer camp experience, individualized for you and your child. Here is everything from a kayak excursion on the Hudson River to a parade of mermaids in Brooklyn, to fishing in the Harlem Meer, and boarding an historic vessel.
