Summer Programs

The energy on the two campuses shifts significantly at the end of the school year, but the use of the spaces for learning, growth, exploration, and fun continues. The Riverdale Hill Campus is the home of one branch of ESF Summer Camps, in which many young Riverdale students participate. If you visit the Lisman Laboratories in mid-July, you will see rising juniors and seniors actively engaging in our Summer Science Research Program. Riverdale also hosts our ever-expanding Knowmad program, which innovatively combines the best of the Riverdale faculty and the incredible resources of New York City and its surrounding areas for a series of courses for Middle and Upper School students.
