CMA Partners with The WNET Group on Season 2 of Camp TV

Children’s Museum of the Arts is thrilled to announce a content partnership with The WNET Group’s summer learning and exploration series Camp TV, which returns for Season 2 on public television stations nationwide beginning on Monday, June 21 and CampTV.org. In the New York metro area, Camp TV will air weekdays beginning Monday, July 5 at 10 AM on WLIW21; 11 AM on NJ PBS; and Tuesday, July 6 at 12 PM on THIRTEEN.

Broadway performer Zachary Noah Piser (“Dear Evan Hansen,” “Wicked”) returns as head counselor to guide campers ages 5-10 as they learn through play. To foster a sense of community, Piser kicks off each episode with a welcome song and announces the theme for the day. Kids can prepare for each program and participate based on the theme. Season 2 themes include Summer Celebration Day, Snow Day, Patterns Day, Inside Out Day, Independence Day, Celebrate Your Name Day, Sports Day, Royalty Day, Travel Day, Mismatched Shoe (and Sock!) Day, Favorite Animal Day, Ocean Day, Farm Day and more.

Piser guides campers through a variety of activities, exploring nature, math, science, the arts, movement, storytelling, writing and more. In Season 2, kids will learn to garden, beatbox, investigate a “tornado in a jar,” celebrate a panda’s first birthday, do a salad dance, and make a pattern parfait and a “mini moody me” social emotional craft. Each episode also includes a storytelling segment with a different book of the day. Activity guides will be posted on camptv.org so families can prepare ahead of each episode.
