The Purpose

Backed by our unique mission, NORY summer camp sets out to nurture purposeful changemakers. It starts with strengthening certain core soft skills, or attitudes: empathy, resilience, and inquisitiveness.

Although these core soft skills are not exclusive to robotics, engineering, and science... NORY’s summer camps use these disciplines to drive excitement, problem-solving, and curiosity. All of our weekly summer camp themes empower students to take risks and use technology in exciting ways.

NORY Summer in Numbers

10 convenient locations throughout NYC make NORY Summer accessible to everyone!

In 2021 summer, over 3,000 innovators created life-long memories at NORY IN-PERSON camps only.

Counselors are the most important part of our summer camp. Only 3% of applicants are accepted as NORY educators. We take pride in our unparalleled quality of educators.

Your Dream Summer Camp Is Here!

Check out what our parents are saying about NORY Summer Camp 2020.

"Timmy and Teddy had so much fun today and kept saying that this is the BEST camp ever!! They were asking me if they could continue for next week."


"I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful program. Lila really enjoyed the camp so much. We have signed up for two more weeks. I wasn’t sure how she would do but the way you have it set up and the wonderful community that is built with the counselors really made it such a great experience for her. Thank you again."


"My son came home from camp and told me his day was very very great! We are never able to get much out of him on normal school days, but he was so excited to tell us how he loved building and doing experiments! We will definitely sign him up again!"

- Michelle

NORY Summer

With 10 campsites in Manhattan and Brooklyn, NORY Summer is one of the largest and most beloved summer camps in NYC.

What is NORY? Why do families choose NORY?

NORY Summer is like Disney World, with experiential hands-on STEM projects that support the development of NORY’s 3 core values: Resilience, Inquisitiveness, and Empathy. From transforming the campsite into a life-size fort in one week to building a dancing robot to film TikTok music videos in another, future changemakers collaborate to invent unimaginable creations to make their dream come true.

Our immersive weekly experiences introduce campers to purposeful missions (sometimes real-world issues or wild-imaginary ones) and inspire them to learn various skills ranging from woodworking to high-tech robot building to bring their ideas to life. We celebrate their “awesome mistakes” and empower them to develop and test their solutions to create a positive impact they are proud of.

2022 Highlights

The 2022 Summer keyword is "Collaboration." Empathy-driven teamwork will allow our future changemakers to take bigger risks, have more fun, and experience a greater sense of achievement together.

The swimming and sports add-on options, fun-filled camp activities paired with our unique weekly projects create the best day-camp experience ever. 

As parents, we never stop asking ourselves how to make the NORY experience more convenient for families. Our complimentary lunch, dedicated contact line, and 10 locations throughout NYC are just a few examples of improvements we have made. NORY Summer will beat your expectation every year until you can't imagine anything better.

"Griffin really loved his time at camp.  He told me earlier this week on our way to drop off -- "I never want this week to end!".  Woodworking is basically his dream come true.  I'm so happy we were able to find this for him."
