Central Park

  Central Park Map  

Often the first trip we take in a school year is a scavenger hunt in Central Park.  Advisories explore the park, taking group photos and working together to find a variety of park landmarks.  This trip sets the tone for the school year, providing an opportunity for advisories to engage in team building and reinforces trip norms.


 Ramapo for Children logo A yearly tradition is our fall overnight Ramapo Retreat at Ramapo for Children in upstate New York. Over the course of two days students engage in a variety of team-building activities with their advisories and in grade-level groups: day and night-time hikes; low- and high-ropes courses; campfire activities; games and contests; and family-style dining.  Everybody enjoys free play in the playground or the gym, s’mores around the fire, and the build-your-own salad bar at each meal. And, of course, the thrill of trying out a new high-ropes challenge is exhilarating!
