RealArts Summer Campers Wrap Up 'Heroic' Summer of Drama, Music and Visual Arts 

Our RealArts Summer Campers enjoyed a magical summer at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House!  The theme this summer was "Heroes."  Each week the children explored a different variety of hero - superheroes, artistic heroes, everyday heroes and, most importantly, the heroes inside themselves.  They experienced a diverse array of drama, music, visual arts and swimming classes, along with farm-to-table meals, recreation and weekly field trips.  Some fun excursions included the Cooper Hewitt Museum, Victorian Gardens and a breathtaking musical performance at TADA! Youth Theater.
