The Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts in Wheatley Heights, known for its summer arts camp for kids, is holding a one-day outing for adults. "Usdan University" features a summer's worth of events, including ceramics, painting, tennis and archery. Those whose artistry leans toward Broadway can take part in jazz dance or musical theater. There also will be a workshop on organic gardening. Bring your swimsuit if you want to take a dip in Usdan's Olympic-size pool. Lunch and a concert are included. At the end of the day, everyone gets ice cream, just like real camp.

Usdan University is Friday, 9 a.m.- 3 p.m.; cost is $65 a person, but two or more people registering together pay $50 each. For information, call 631-643-7900, or go to
