summer camp activities

Reviving childhood memories of summers spent at sleep away camp, Elements brings those moments back with a plethora of games and activities. With its lakeside backdrop, attendees are encouraged to bring their own floats, hit the lake in canoes and kayaks, compete in beach ball dodgeball, or try to commandeer BangOn!NYC's pirate ship.

Also programmed for the weekend is professionally assisted rock climbing and zip lining, mini golf, basketball, tetherball, volleyball and more. For those that are daring enough, fans will have the opportunity to face a ceremonial fire walk. Additional summer camp games will also be led by

Elements’ seasoned activities coordinator and "funtender" Rawb Lane including a costume parade, sunset flow arts, a relay race, vinyl record hunt with special prizes and much more from his crew of party starters including a no cash, no limit, barter-only Frick Frack Blackjack, where the odder the item the better the trade.
