Literacy Tutorial Program
Town's reading teachers bring their expertise to our SummerSault literacy tutorial program. This is an exceptional opportunity to improve and further develop your child’s literacy skills without the pressures of the daily school routine. We offer two private weekly half-hour sessions that accommodate your child at any reading level. There is an additional fee of $300 per session and enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. This program will be offered contingent on minimum enrollment.
Early Drop-Off Option
New for Summer 2020! We will offer early drop-off starting at 8:30am; more details to follow.
SummerSault at The Town School is located on a tree-lined cul de sac at 540 East 76th Street, overlooking the East River. We are in a great location for young children, with no through traffic and John Jay Park just across the street. Our facilities include air-conditioned classrooms, two outdoor play spaces, gym, art rooms, and a theater.
Lunch and Snack
Children staying for the full-day program bring their own lunch and drinks. Morning beverage and snack are served to all campers. Peanut-free Policy Due to the increasing number of children with peanut and nut allergies, SummerSault has a strict peanut, tree-nut and sesame seed free policy. NO peanut or nut products or seeds of any kind will be allowed in the camp. Tree nuts include cashews, pistachios, almonds, brazil nuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, chestnuts, walnuts, hazel nuts, pine nuts and sesame. Please note that coconuts are now considered a tree-nut. We are grateful for your cooperation in this matter, as it can be an extremely serious situation for those children who are allergic.
