Imagine a space where your child can be their truest self through play.


Immersive, engaging and child-directed, each day for each child is their own personal version of the ‘best camp ever.’ During play at Brooklyn Wild, children are in charge of their own time—from building forts to digging mud tunnels, from finding worms to reading in the shade, from creating currencies out of bottle caps to negotiating complex rules to new games. It all happens here.


Trained adult playworkers and nature educators gently support children’s play without judgment, creating a soothing rhythm to the day that moves the group from trees to fields to water play and to local playgrounds and parks. They respect children’s ideas and all play types, and create environments of freedom and permission while keeping everyone safe.


Each week is unique because play follows the children’s interests, and one day each week we take a field trip to a forest or beach for deep nature play. Classes take place all outdoors in Sunset Park, rain or shine.
