Shine is New York City’s leading provider of pop-up classes, parties, workshops, events and camps for kids ages 0–12 years old. We take children’s education, enrichment, and entertainment out of traditional environments and make them mobile by creating unique pop-up experiences in our clients’ homes, a building’s common space, or at venues in and around Manhattan, Long Island and the tri-state area.

Celebrate all things Hamptons at Shine’s summer camps… where every day is an East End adventure!

We will be spending Mondays and Wednesdays using the Children’s Museum of East End as our home base. We are thrilled to have access to their incredible facility including the playground, mini golf, classrooms, gallery space, amphitheater and more. Most exciting, we will be crossing the street to the South Fork Natural History Museum and Nature Center for hands on exploration and education each week. Private guided walks though the trails and lessons by their incredible staff will only be part of our experience. We will be at LongHouse Reserve on Tuesdays and Bridge Gardens on Thursdays.

*The full schedule of pop-up locations for Fridays will be available soon. Some locations include: LongHouse Reserve, Amber Waves Farm, Wölffer Estate, Historic Sag Harbor and East Hampton, Nova’s Ark, Channing Daughters Vineyards, Madoo Conservancy and more. Parents will pick up and drop off at location.

Designed and led by Shine and inspired by our summer camp, the creative arts program uses the inspiration of the East End to expose campers to a variety of themes. From flora and fauna, to the abundance of art, architecture and history, each week will have a different focus and incorporate an array of mediums as well as the opportunity to engage in constructive arts, science and nature exploration, games and books.
