Run A Luncheonette Camp

We have access to a real New York City gem--The Sunview Luncheonette. The Sunview is a former diner turned venue for arts, community and food. We have the use of the luncheonette for the whole week--to cook in, eat in, and use as our clubhouse. On Friday we will open our doors to serve a prix-fixe meal to parents, friends, and Sunview members.
Ages 5 - 13
Tinkering School® is an educational program created by Gever Tulley at Brightworks in California. Tinkering Camp is designed to be a problem-solving experience lab and wonderland for students of all ages held at the Brooklyn Apple Academy. Students consistently try new things with access to a wood shop, kitchen, library, and musical instruments, as well as sewing, crafting, painting, and printmaking materials. Each day will consist of a morning field trip to Prospect Park, Central Library, Pier 6 or The Brooklyn Museum, followed by lunch, a mystery challenge, and open tinker time in the afternoon.
Dungeons & Dragons Camp
August 6 - 10, Ages 8-13
We will be playing a week long Dungeons & Dragons campaign! D&D is a great way of exploring your imagination, learning to cooperate, studying mythology and fantasy worlds, and spending a great time with others. We'll help create characters (or bring your own) and will be going on adventures. This camp is open to both beginners and experienced players.
SUMMER CAMPING TRIP
August 13 - 17, Ages 7-13
We're heading to the woods for a five day, four night cabin camping trip in Harriman State Park, about an hour north of NYC by train. We'll be staying on the shore of Lake Sebago in the NY State Park cabins. Harriman State Park has miles of of really nice trails to hike, as well as fishing, boating, and camp fire cooking to be done. There will be five adults and fifteen children in three cabins. We'll have access to a car and there is electricity and refrigerators in the cabins, for a nice balance of wilderness with some of the comforts of modern life.
Game Design Camp
August 27 - 31, Ages 7-12
Your kids will build and play their own games in a collaborative game design lab. We’ll start off the week by playing and analyzing existing board games, role playing games, and outdoor playground games of their choosing. Then we will build our own games using our imagination, collaborative problem-solving, and tinkering in our wood shop. We’ll also have access to the 3D printer for making our own figures and a letterpress for printing our own cards and tokens. If your child likes to build and play and use their imagination, they will love spending this week of camp with us.
TOY Design Camp
June 25 - 29, Ages 7-11
We’ll be working on toy designs by either creating drawing or drafts of our ideas and then searching for the right parts in the workshop, or by scavenging the workshop first for pieces that have potential to become great parts and put them together. We'll also have access to a 3D Printer and 3D Pen to create some of these components and then add the finishing touches to form unique toys. For certain vehicles it may be possible to incorporate moving parts as well.
Comic Books, Zines And Graphic Storytelling
July 23 - 27, Ages 7-11
We will take an idea for a story, quote, joke, poem, zine, etc...that you think of and tell it in graphic form. From story(idea) development and character design to making a script that you will turn into penciled panels and pages to ink and color after wards. Don’t forget we will also need to work on a cover page to complete the look of our finished first issue.
