Usdan is an award-winning visual and performing arts day camp. For fifty-four years, we have brought experienced educators and professional artists to teach and collaborate with Usdan campers ages 5 to 18. On 140 acres of natural beauty, students find the literal and metaphoric space to push their existing talents and delve into new ones.
Usdan is set on an idyllic woodland campus on Long Island, dotted with open-air studios and performance spaces designed to inspire creativity, collaboration, and experimentation. Students design their own summer camp experience by choosing classes from our Departments of Art, Chess, Creative Writing, Dance, Music, Nature & Sustainability, Theater, and Recreational Arts.
The Usdan experience is unique among arts summer camps around Long Island and NYC, as it brings together the rigor of artistic practice and the playfulness of a classic summer camp, with places to swim, play sports, and practice yoga and archery. It is no surprise that many campers choose to return year after year to continue their creative journeys in Usdan’s welcoming and inclusive environment.
Enrollment is open for our 1-, 4-, and 8-week sessions. Busing is provided from Long Island, Queens, Manhattan, and Brooklyn.
