Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, Let’s Talk Schools and the Bank Street Summer Camp have decided to cancel the UWS Summer Opportunities, Activities & Resources Fair scheduled for this Sunday, March 15, out of an abundance of caution… 
While we don’t know what the next couple of weeks will bring, we hope to still hold our Fair on Sunday, April 26 at the Ephesus Church in Harlem from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM. If you have not registered for this event, please do so as we anticipate an even larger turnout than last year. 
All the best, 
Let’s Talk Schools & Bank Street Summer Camp

Let’s Talk Schools is a unique resource for families and education professionals that provides comprehensive, practical information on NYC schools – public, private, and charter – for your child’s entire pre-college education, from nursery through high school. They also hold an annual Summer Camp Fair! This year marks the 6th anniversary of their Summer Opportunities, Activities & Resources (SOAR) fairs, featuring summer camps and programs for families with kids in pre-k through 12th grade.

Yes, Uptown Birdies has an upcoming summer camp guide online, but there’s nothing like a face-to-face conversation directly with camp directors who want nothing more than to answer your questions and provide information. SOAR fairs bring together multiple programs and parents all under one roof in a fun, easily accessible environment. They’re your one-stop-shop for summer fun.


“The SOAR event is an easy way to meet and interact with a variety of summer programs – sleepaway and day camps, creative, physical, and educational activities – in your neighborhood and beyond. We’ve thoughtfully curated a diverse lineup in arts, sports and all types of education enrichment that’s sure to keep your pre-k through high school students entertained and engaged during the summer months.” -Let’s Talk Schools
