Spend Your Summer with Shine!

Shine’s Summer in the City

We at Shine are ready for our Summer in the City (and know many of you are too)! Our teachers will be in town through Labor Day to offer weekly classes, multi-day mini-camps, one time workshops, and parties.


Summer is the perfect time for some structured indoor enrichment: a couple of hours out of the sun, the opportunity to stay connected with old friends, and down time from school to focus on more specialized interests. Or if it’s outside time you want, schedule a class for the park or the pier or a City Adventure.


If you are interested in setting up a class, camp, or workshop this summer in the city, email or call 212.414.5427.


Shine’s Summer in the Hamptons

Fun and enrichment out of the city. You asked… and we listened!

From the 4th of July through Labor Day, Shine’s custom programming will be available in the Hamptons! Whether it’s a Saturday art class, a birthday party, a one-time workshop, or a weekly summer class, we’ll come to you and do it all! Summer offerings include:
  • workshops and classes
  • private music classes (beginning for children aged 4 months)
  • birthday parties and events
  • Little Luminaries (summer extension)
  • private group classes with Shine founder, Aaron Goldschmidt (limited availability)
  • summer camp
  • adult crafting events

Hamptons Summer Camp 2018

Monday/Wednesdays @ Children’s Museum of the East End
Tuesdays @  LongHouse Reserve 
Thursdays @ Bridge Gardens
Fridays @ iconic East End locations* 

From Monday, July 2 to Friday, August 31, join founder & director Aaron Goldschmidt and Shine’s Hamptons’ staff (all educators or certified teachers!) as they run the fifth year of their innovative creative arts camp celebrating all things Hamptons! Camp day activities include:

  • outdoor science and exploration
  • summer art and nature projects
  • gardening
  • physical arts, sports, and yoga
  • music and movement
  • Super Soccer Stars
  • weekly visits and private instruction at the South Fork Natural History Museum and Nature Center
Our summer camp is for children ages 4 – 10 years and will be held five days a week, Monday through Friday, from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm. We will be spending Mondays and Wednesdays using CMEE 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.  Additionally, we will be having Super Soccer Stars come both days to provide classes for the campers (broken into age groups) in addition to our regular sports classes.  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 thought 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.


Single week and day rates are available. Contact 212.414.5427 or  to register. Spots are limited and filling up quickly, so register now!
