Rogue Squads:

Our savory and baking camp students tour the city in the evenings.

Everyone’s favorite evening activity! In the evenings our residential students become locals, touring and checking out all the best spots with our smart, savvy staff.
campusNYC students join us from all over the globe. Each student is bringing along with them their own set of experiences – some have been to New York City a million times, and others it’s their very first time. We started our Rogue Squads to help the students personalize their time in NYC.
A Rogue Squad is a small group of students accompanied by counselors.  On some of our evenings we break up into Rogue Squads and go nuts exploring the City!  This has become a tradition and is always a good time.

Rogue squad destinations have included:

For example: A group of kids plans this trip:  a free ride on the Staten Island Ferry to pass by the Statue of Liberty, head to Ground Zero, relax in Battery Park, shop in SoHo, and end in Little Italy to eat pasta and cannolis.  Whether you are a savory or baking camp student, in the evening you become like a local, traveling with staffers who know the city and all the best places to go!  After all that, we head back to the dorm to chill out!

Another group of students may want to go shopping, and check out stores in Soho. This group will pop in and out of clothing stores like Brandy Melville or Nike, Supreme, or even MAC or Urban Outfitters, then grab a famous dessert from Dominique Ansel Bakery, and finish off the day with a selfie photo shoot in Washington Square park!

Disclaimer:  students don’t get to do ‘whatever they want to do’; we honor student requests within reason.  Nothing unsafe or not possible.  Students are welcome to research places they would like to visit, food to try, and fun happenings around the city. The students group up, and counselors will join them in their adventure. Our counselors are all familiar with NYC, and the subway – so we can help make almost any Rogue Squad plan come to life.
Its all about possibility!  What do you want to create?
