Different Directions... online!

This is an official call-out for recent photos, opinions/testimonials about DD, experiences (past & present) that we could use online... anything goes! We'd love to hear from teachers, parents, and kids alike. Help us to make our website & facebook page accurately reflect our community’s beautiful reality. :)

Summer Camp 2017

Adventure Summer camp 2017!  This is our third year of Adventure Summer Camp at Different Directions.  My daughter Lottie talks about the memories and moments of summer camp all year long.  Her favorite things last year were the field trip to the Highline, learning about native plants of New York State and sponge fights in the park. The memories of hours in the park, being able to take our time racing around the playground with our friends and taking field trip journeys to the amazing cultural experiences this city has to offer are the fuel of imaginative, curious and happy children.  Our summer camp is a time for children be creative, relax and be with friends.  We all know the benefit of spending time in the sun, keeping our minds engaged and healthy socialization. These are the foundation of our summer experience.    This year musician  Leslie Frost will be launching her Joy of Music program and Anthropologist Stephanie Campos will be leading the campers on cultural explorations of some of New York's wonderful museums.
