Clue Camp

C.L.U.E (Children Living the Urban Experience) Camp is a summer day camp experience designed to empower the children of NYC mentally, physically, and spiritually to be active participants in bettering their worlds.


CLUE Camp is a six week summer day camp program open to children who are entering grades 1-6.*  C.L.U.E (Children Living the Urban Experience) Camp is designed to empower the children of NYC mentally, physically, and spiritually to be active participants in bettering their worlds.

Campers participate in games, small group activities, music, and recreation.  Each week, campers also venture out on an exciting field trip within the confines of NYC. Trips in the past have included the New York Hall of Science, Central Park Zoo, and Coney Island.

Every year CLUE Camp focuses on helping campers learn to embrace their unique identities, experiences, and strengths.  They are encouraged to realize their own power to be a part of community and to positively change the world! 

*Entering 6th graders participate in a transition program that consists of CLUE Camp in the mornings and Teen Center in the afternoons. Students in this program must be able to walk home on their own or be picked up off site on some program days.

Imagination Station - 2019 Theme

This year's theme is Imagination Station!  Imagination is the root of new things. This summer, our campers will learn that what they IMAGINE matters and they will be empowered to use their imaginations to make a difference in their lives, communities, and in the world.

The Future is You and me - 2018 Theme

The “Future is Female” slogan that debuted in 1972 had resurgence during the 2016 Presidential Campaign as a rallying cry for female-identifying individuals against a misogynist patriarchal culture and their collective hopes for the future. You have likely seen t-shirts, bags, or hashtags over the past year and a half with the slogan. 

This summer, we’re giving our own twist to the movement by erasing traditional binary labels and empowering all campers, no matter how they identify, where they’re from or what they look like, to take ownership of the God given gifts they possess and then realize therein the great power they have, within themselves and with community, to positively change the world.
