While we are sad that we will not be together on Usdan's campus this summer, we are excited to launch Usdan Online: Usdan's online arts education program. Usdan Online aims to provide excellent arts instruction and to create a thriving community of young artists that is not dependent on being together physically.
Summer Camp for the Arts on Long Island
Since 1968, Usdan has brought world-class teachers and visiting artists – actors, directors, playwrights, painters, sculptors, musicians, composers, dancers, poets and novelists – to teach and collaborate with our campers ages 5 to 18. Usdan is set on an idyllic 140-acre woodland campus in Long Island, dotted with open-air studios and performance spaces designed to inspire creativity, collaboration and experimentation. Campers choose to “major” and “minor” in classic artistic disciplines such as painting, music, theater, or dance, or in newer choices like metalsmithing and cosplay. The Usdan experience is unique among arts summer camps around NYC, as it brings together the rigor of artistic practice and the playfulness of a classic summer camp, with places to swim, play sports, and practice yoga and archery. It is no surprise that many campers choose to return year after year to continue their creative journeys in Usdan’s safe and welcoming environment.
