Park East Youth Group is an opportunity for children to interact with one another in an educational, social, active and fun environment.
Events and activities are planned throughout the year that take place both inside Park East as well as outside. This program is intended to bring the children of Rabbi Arthur Schneier Park East Day School, Leon and Gina Fromer Park East Religious School and Jr. Congregation members of the Park East Synagogue together. Popular events at Park East are Sports Night/Ice Cream Sundae Party, Movie and Pajama Party.The Park East Youth Group also runs our popular annual Purim Disco.
Many events are held outside, including Bowling, Rock Climbing, Circle Line Boat Tour, Empire State Building, Big Apple Circus, Dave & Busters, Harlem Globtrotters and Snowtubing, to, name just a few of the spectacular trips the Park East Youth Group goes on. If you are looking for a great way for your child to explore all that New York City has to offer, and spend time with their Park East friends, then the PEYG is the way to go!
Youth Group Program is for 1st through 8th grade.
The Park East Youth Group Program was created and has been run by Donny Wechsler for the past 20 years. Applying his vast experience working with children in both School and Camp setting, he established this program to give children an opportunity to grow outside of the classroom. Running this program with him is Whitney Harris-Linton, who has been a part of the Park East Community for the past 6 years. A world traveler, and teacher with years of camping experience, Whitney brings to Park East her love of children, exploring and enhancing their experiences while creating many of the adventures the Youth Group Program goes on.
