Can’t get enough of The Yard - New York City’s only adventure playground on Governors Island? Then join us this fall at our Adventure Play Club for more self directed play with loose parts, with the support of our playworkers!

play:groundNYC is excited to launch a 3 hour Adventure Play Club on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 to 6pm at The Yard, beginning September through December, 2018. Our club is small, so reserve your spot while you can!  Our trained playworkers will pick up your child from school at dismissal and bring them to Governors Island on the 3.45pm ferry. Your child will have the opportunity to play, create, build and explore with the support of our wonderful playworkers. They will return with our playworkers to Manhattan on the 6pm ferry, ready for pick up at the Battery Maritime Ferry building at 6.15pm.

Our club will take place rain, shine, or snow, and we will be in touch as the weather cools down about the forecast and what clothing your child should wear to class. (For high winds or thunderstorms, we will move indoors to City Hall Library or a local museum.)

**Please note: we hope to host after school adventure play at The Yard through December 19. If we have to relocate, our classes will take place at playgrounds at in Manhattan and other playful locations indoors and outdoors downtown. Minimum enrollment required for the club to run.**
