K-8 Summer Camp

This summer, Hudson Guild's K-8 Summer Camp is back at the Elliott Center for the first time since 2019. The program has been off to a great start! Each week our participants have been learning about citizenship, honesty, respect, compassion, responsibility, courage and perseverance through engagement in art, STEM, literacy, physical wellness, and field trips, while having fun every day. Click on the image above to see what the campers have been up to this summer!

To support this essential program, the Junior Advisory Board is seeking to raise $10K to ensure more kids are able participate at this critical time in their development. The funds we raise will help offset the costs associated with summer camp and athletic programs, helping these young students enjoy the summer and get back on track ahead of the new school year.

Arts Exhibits This Summer


Go Figure! featuring hundreds of fantastical creatures created by Rick Krieger will be shown at Guild Gallery II in Hudson Guild’s Fulton Center from July 7th through September 1st.

The Art of the Reveal is a group show organized by Will Daniels, featuring work by 15 artists from the New York City Metro Modern Quilters Guild, a group which takes a contemporary and experimental approach to quilt making.

Technology Literacy Programs for Older Adults


In May, Aaron Corbin joined the Hudson Guild team as the Technology Coordinator, with the goal of addressing our older adult participants' need for technology literacy. After conducting initial assessments, Aaron has been facilitating weekly workshops in the Spectrum Computer Lab at our Fulton Community Center covering topics including, smartphone basics, passcode safety, downloading files, google drive functionality, as well as individual lessons for people.
