Extended Year

Every summer, our rising 6th, 7th and 8th grade CMS students venture north to Lake Placid for Camp Holy Child (CHC). Generously sponsored by the Reiss Family and the Julian Reiss Foundation, CHC provides an opportunity for students to explore the outdoors through hiking and swimming while focusing on practicing wellness. Camp is often the first time away from home and the first time in a non-urban setting for many of our students.Camp staff is composed of CMS graduates, who serve as camp counselors, and CMS teaching and support staff, who oversee camp operations. CHC encourages our students to continue their character growth outside of NYC and prepares them to start the next school year strong in the fall.
In addition to Camp Holy Child, our summer programming includes Summer Academy for the Upper School students and Camp Cornelia for our incoming 4th and 5th graders.
