Afterschool at PS 11


Welcome to PS 11 Programs

Para nuestras familias hispanas: Por favor comuniquese con nosotros atravez de correo electronico ( si necesita ayuda navegando o entendiendo la informacion de nuestra pagina.

Offering Afterschool Classes, Early Bird Morning Program and Summer Camp to students of PS 11.

The Summer Camp Program at PS 11 is going live beginning July 20th.  We plan to offer live, in person programming from July 20th to August 14th.  Because we are still awaiting information about a possible permit at PS 11, we will only open registration one week at a time in order to ensure that we are providing the safest, most enriching, most FUN program and are operating under the most current guidelines. Register here.

Our first week – a Day in the Park – will run Monday, July 20th – Thursday, July 23rd from 10:00-3:00. The cost will be $350;  a limited number of scholarships will be available.  We will apply any current credits or summer camp deposits to the amount due.  There are a maximum of 30 seats available for this program and students must register and attend all 4 days.  At this time, the program is open to incoming 1st-6th graders.

Students will be assigned to a group no larger than 15 but will participate in activities in groups of 5 (with one adult).  All groups will remain the same throughout the week with the same kids and adults.

We are still working on a rain plan.  There is a possibility that camp would be cancelled on a day with thunderstorms/heavy rain if a safe/feasible indoor space was not available.

The tentative schedule will be:

10:00 Meet at PS 11 (staggered arrival times)
10:30 Arrive at neighborhood Park (locations to be determined within walking distance)
10:30-11:00  Team Building Games
11:00-12:00  Enrichment activities (games, arts & crafts, storytelling, dance, chess, etc.)

July 3, 2020

We are continuing to plan for a LIVE summer camp that will begin July 20th and run through August 14th.  We are talking with the DOE to try to obtain a permit to use PS 11 which will allow us to extend our hours and open additional seats.  We will still only be able to run at  50% capacity.  As with a lot of things these days, there are constant changes but we hope to have more information and be able to open registration next week.  

In the meantime….

Check out our VIRTUAL summer camp options:

•  Virtual day camp 7/6-7/17, 10-3, half day option and scholarships available. 
Physical games, Art, Hip Hop, Soccer, Karate, Yoga and more.  Daily schedules will be posted on our website,

•  NEW Enrichment classes beginning July 6th

Please stay in touch and let us know if there is anything we can do to support you and your family.

Stay cool, stay safe and Happy 4th of July!
