Class Experience

We pick up from local schools! Check if your school is on the list by clicking Register at the right hand side, and then click After School Pick Up for the drop down menu.

Please note: This is an ALL WEATHER program. We cancel outdoor play only if there is heavy rain/snow or the temperature drops below 20 degrees. If we need to cancel a session, we run online, at home Dungeons & Dragons as a substitute. There is no school pick up on the rare day that we need to cancel outdoor after school.
There are no make ups if outdoor programming is canceled due to bad weather. In the rare case that we cancel due to bad weather DURING the program, you are notified by text and e-mail to pick up your child. You need to pick up your child immediately, as they will be waiting for you outdoors.

Outdoor Lab in Prospect Park gives kids a fun, safe way to socialize.
In our OUTDOOR program, we play 100s of different types of games. These include a wide variety of VERBAL games such as: Social Deduction, Trivia & Guessing Games, Brain Teasers & Tongue Twisters, Improv Activities & Rhythm Games and our ever-popular Role Playing Games (like D&D).

In addition we run PHYSICAL games to ensure that kids get their exercise. Many of these include the use of safe, foam weapons and props. Whether the games are verbal or physical they’re all designed to promote much needed SOCIALIZATION.
We cancel our outdoor program rarely, so be sure to dress your kids appropriately for the weather.

Cost: Pay in full for the semester, or choose our installment plan, the cost is the same. The first installment is charged upon registration; subsequent installments are charged on the 1st of the next month. The last charge is collected January 1st. If you register after the start of the semester, your fee is pro-rated.
Want more than one session per week, or have two children who want to play? A discount of 5% is applied to each session purchased. You can even mix and match after school programs -- and receive the 5% discount on your programs.
We will honor sibling/friend requests to the best of our ability, but kids need to be signed up for the same program (Indoors or Outdoor + Online) to be grouped together.

Strict health and safety protocols are followed, including social distancing, masks, and health screenings. Check your receipt for a list of required supplies. Please take a minute to read all of the safety and logistical policies and protocols thoroughly. These can be found in our website's footer. By registering you are agreeing to these terms!

My son loves Brooklyn Game Lab! He loves being with people who love Magic and other games as much as he does! The instructors are very supportive and quietly work behind the scenes to build self-esteem, resolve the little kiddie conflicts that come up and generate overall positivity.

About Brooklyn Game Lab - Park Slope

We don’t just teach kids how to play games; we teach them how to analyze, discuss, and experiment with their own variants in small groups. Our kids are encouraged to think out of the (game) box.Kids who engage in our specialized approach to gaming develop critical-thinking skills like risk and resource management, the art of negotiation and deduction, and long-term planning. The Lab also stresses the importance of fair play, diplomacy, collaboration, and a positive attitude however the game turns out. Located in Park Slope and DUMBO, Brooklyn Game Lab has classes and camps for kids!
