Our facility is right in the middle of the greatest city in the world, and we take full advantage of the many attractions available to entice, engage, and expand the horizons of naturally curious children. From the top of Manhattan’s Empire State Building to the depths of Coney Island’s Aquarium, from the Bronx Zoo to the Queens Hall of Science, our groups will participate in age-appropriate trips and activities guided by experienced Caedmon teachers and other talented specialists.
The Caedmon School Discovery Camp is staffed primarily by Caedmon School teachers who are highly skilled, enthusiastic, and committed to making our Camp outstanding in every way. Activity Specialists are professionals and experts in their fields. Every member of the Caedmon community is dedicated to making the Camp an unforgettable experience for all!
