Welcome to Physique Summer Camp!
We are excited to announce our new location for Summer 2015 at the Pine Street School located in the heart of Financial District at 25 Pine Street. The new space features an expansive multi-purpose room, state of the art kitchen and a large classroom with big windows overlooking Wall St. Entrance to the building is located at 25 Pine St between Williams and Nassau Streets. We are excited about our new space and welcome new and returning campers to our downtown camp which has served the community of New Yorkers for 7 years.
Our morning round up, announcements, calisthenics & stretches will take place in our multipurpose studio before boarding the bus for our daily instructional swim to Seahorse Aquatics Center located in Lower East Side at 69 Columbia St. The pool at Seahorse features 5 lanes, 25 yards, starting blocks, 3.5 feet shallow in the shallow end and 10 feet deep in the deep end. It is the perfect pool for our beginner and advanced swimmers.
Campers will take a school bus from the Pine Street school every morning to the pool and arrive back for lunch provided by InBox Your Meals. Parents do not need to pack lunch. Just drop off the kids with their swim gear.
During the afternoon campers engage is sports, arts, science, music and cooking. Physique Summer Camp has been a favorite of parents and children alike. We look forward to having a great time together this summer! Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions, or to schedule a tour.

Cooking By The Creative Kitchen
Campers learn about different food groups through fun recipes to gain exposure to and increased acceptance of variety of fruits, vegetable and other healthful food. Children develop a sense of confidence and accomplishment as they taste their way through the cooking lessons, while learning new foods, shapes, numbers, colors, geography and social skills.

Science Ninjas by critically acclaimed cartoonist Nathan Schreiber makes science fundamentals fun and fresh with the power of comics, animation and games! Weekly live science activities boost learning and engagement by adding hands on experiments and collaborative competitions.
