This Week at Camp

What's happening this week at CAMP? A whole lot, and you won't want to miss the fun!

First of all, an important announcement from Ground Control to Families of Earth: On September 6, the magic door at Camp Fifth Avenue will open into a brand-new universe of play, creativity, and, of course, space lava. So pop on those fishbowl space helmets and warm up the engine on the space rover: Cosmic Camp is ready for blast-off!

And there's more in store! An all-new, super-exciting experience is coming to our Dallas location in mid-August — so keep your eyes on our Instagram for the big reveal. In the meantime, heads-up to our Dallas-area Campers that this is your last chance to play in the station wagon and slide down the tent slide before we (temporarily) close the magic door to build The Next Big Thing.

In other newsy news about new things ... CAMP is coming to Los Angeles, California this fall! We're opening a brand new store at Century City — sign up here to get updates and be among the first to peek behind the magic door. And New York families can reserve a spot for some artsy crafty fun at the new Art CAMP at Columbus Circle, including spin art, splatter art, slime, tie dye, and a whole lot more.

This week there are storytimes, music and movement classes, and crafts at all of our stores except for Dallas (sorry! but the new experience coming soon to Dallas is gonna be worth the wait — we promise!). We're rolling out some brand-new crafts and activities too, like Tie-Dye BootCAMP and Cosmic Slime!

Here's the full run-down on this week's happenings at CAMP!
