Summer Arts Camp on Long Island 


Summer belongs to U.

Usdan opens up a world for children to joyfully express their creativity and develop their artistic skills.

Each summer, we bring professional teachers and artists—actors, directors, playwrights, painters, sculptors, musicians, composers, dancers, poets, and novelists—to teach and collaborate with our campers ages 5 to 18 from Long Island and New York City. 

Set on 140 acres of natural beauty, Usdan is a safe, welcoming place within which campers have the freedom to build new friendships, explore nature, develop personal independence, and have fun, alongside their art making.
