Class Experience

Have a day off? Get your game on! The New York Society of Play hosts day camps whenever school is out! Our camps are a fun, safe way to meet new friends, discover new hobbies, and challenge your mind with the very best in social gaming! With electives such as Board Games, World Building, Pokemon, and Minecraft as well as our NEW Danger Room and Dungeon Master Workshop for Advanced D&D Players, there is something for everyone!


Campers will begin the day in an elective of their choice. After a bit of social time for lunch, your young adventurer will embark on a quest in the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, becoming part of a massive fantasy world built and lived in by hundreds of kids! And all of these activities will be supervised by our expert staff to make sure everything runs smoothly for you and your camper!


There is always a New York Society of Play holiday camp just around the corner, but seats are limited! Sign up today!!

Meet your Instructors

Alioune N.

Ryan J.

I own and operate my own events and portrait photography business in NYC. I’ve earned Masters and Bachelors of Fine Arts degrees in Acting from the University of California at Irvine and Ithaca College respectively. I love introducing kids to games, helping them develop healthy gaming habits, watching them meet new friends, and creating the phenomenal stories only kids can tell. I enjoy spending time with my sons, playing board games, watching movies, reading, swimming, and road trips.

Taylor W.

I was a food server and bartender for 9 years before moving into restaurant management. I was also in a touring rock band for 7 years. I chose to work in childcare because the mentors I had growing up in theater and music changed my life. Being able to provide that support to the next generation of great minds is a dream come true. Seeing the immense social and emotional progress of every student who takes part in our programming is inspiring. In my free time I love to make music and play chess.

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.

Whit C.

I’ve worked in childcare since 2015, and have a BFA in Acting from Pace University. Seeing the joy kids experience while having fun, playing games, and thinking critically interests and excites me. Watching the kids take the games and systems we make and build on them their own ideas is both rewarding and inspiring. This is a dream job, and I’m so blessed and happy to be able to do it. In my free time, I like to design new games, play Magic the Gathering, play basketball, and blow the trumpet!

Raphael C.

Before and while earning a B.A. in Music and Theatre Arts from Brown University, I served in many roles with theatrical organizations. I work in childcare because imagination is something that is very strong during youth, and can remain strong throughout the aging process as long as it has a solid foundation. I enjoy helping kids embrace and cultivate their imaginations in a fun and healthy manner. In my free time, I like to play D&D, compose music, and bake.
