We're Concrete Safaris

Since 2008, Concrete Safaris has prepared youth in East Harlem and beyond to lead healthy lives and shape their environment through outdoor education, play, exploration, and community engagement.

City Surfers

Our outdoor, year-round classrooms foster each child's potential by giving them a place to dream and do within a safe and natural environment, which they help create.
 

Green Exercise Days

Green Exercise Days are outdoor, educational field trips and/or community service experiences in our gardens. Learn more about CS' COVID-19 opportunities.

Outdoor Leadership Academy
