Class Experience

Gear up for adventure and prepare for a Summer of epic proportions! If you live in Brooklyn, New York Society of Play is taking over a park near you!


Campers will save the day with our original, one-of-a-kind Live Action Role Playing Game, which incorporates elements of foam swordplay, item collecting, cartography, orienteering, arts & crafts, and so much more! Your campers will take on the role of heroes and go on missions which will improve the quality of the fantasy world they will play in!


Before lunch, campers will get active with our Foam Sword program, taking part in cooperative and team-based competitive games including Capture the Flag, Jedi vs. Stormtroopers, Wizard Wars, and more!


After lunch, campers will sit down with our master storytellers to dive into a pen and paper Role Playing Game in the style of Dungeons & Dragons! Your camper will take on the role of a main character in settings such as Marvel, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and more! Role Playing games are a valuable exercise in problem solving, arithmetic, reading comprehension, and public speaking.


Our summer program is bound by a social contract championing the traits which constitute a healthy and inviting play environment- trust, consent, cooperation, respect and safety! These values are at the heart of each activity we do here at the New York Society of Play, and our campers exemplify these values as well!


This Summer, we are making several changes to make our summer program as safe as possible given the COVID-19 crisis. Our program will be capped at 12 children per day, divided across 3 to 4 instructors, to ensure safe group sizes where our campers will get all the care and attention they need to have the best experience possible! While our summer program will primarily take place outside, We also have access to indoor space for when the weather gets a bit too intense to be out in the park. In addition, we will be following all CDC and state guidelines on social distancing, mask wearing, and sanitization.

Meet your Instructors

Marielle M.

I have a B.A. in Creative Writing from Brooklyn College with a focus on Fiction. I chose to work in childcare because making a difference for a kid – in any way possible – makes all the difference. I strive to be the person that a younger me needed as a child. The kids at the NYSoP are absolutely incredible. They come up with stuff that always has me on the edge of my seat. They have boundless creativity. In my free time, I like to play video games and crochet.

Evan J.

I hold a BFA from NYU in Drama with a minor in mathematics and computer science. I chose to work in childcare because I love working with kids and playing games. For me, the most inspiring part of working at the NYSoP is getting to watch students who are new to D&D discover the magic of collective storytelling. In my free time, I play an excessive amount of video games and film videos with my friends.
