Finding the right summer camp in New York City for your preschooler just got easier! Oasis Downtown in the heart of Manhattan’s Lower East Side is where children can play, learn and grow while having an amazing summer in the city.

If you think your child is too young for summer camp in New York City, think again. The staff at Oasis Downtown is dedicated to making our youngest campers feel safe and happy, and ensures that the transition to camp life is smooth and nurturing.  

There are many benefits to enrolling your preschooler in Oasis summer camp in New York City. It all starts with the  Early Start Imagination Camp, our unique preschool program for children between the ages of three and five years old. Designed by early childhood educators, this program meets the emotional, social and physical needs of preschool and kindergarten children.

Children in Early Start Imagination Camp get the full Oasis summer camp experience but with extra one-on-one instruction and age appropriate activities. We have a counselor to camper ratio of 1:3 in this program, and structure each day to include smaller activities and also build in plenty of time for breaks, snacks, and a nap.

We’ve created an intimate oasis in the city at our Downtown day camp at PS 110.

Children have access to the school gym, cafeteria, courtyard, air-conditioned classrooms and outdoor basketball court, plus we make short trips to the East River park which has a soccer field. Outdoor adventures, learning new sports, going on scavenger hunts, and participating in kickball games and relay races are some of the fun activities offered at Oasis Downtown.

Preschoolers attending camp are experiencing many firsts, and swimming might be one of them. Children can learn to swim or hone their skills in our American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program. Campers use the Hamilton Fish Park pool under the supervision of our aquatics director, instructors and lifeguards three times per week.

There are plenty of activities to try inside our air-conditioned facilities when temperatures rise or rain is in the forecast. We encourage kids to let their creativity shine in arts and crafts, music, dance and theater programs lead by our experienced instructors. And during Oasis Expeditions, we bring special guests to camp to teach kids activities such as painting, magic and drama.

Oasis summer camp for preschoolers also includes participation in our “Ready for September” school-year readiness program. This includes low stress, academically oriented activities that prepare campers for the social elements and routines associated with being in a structured group setting.

Oasis Downtown summer camp in New York City is the perfect camp for children to have a fun-filled summer on the Lower East Side while making friendships that last a lifetime!
