Brooklyn's 'Toxic Preschool' Owner Is Opening Up a Summer Camp

If at first you don't succeed . . .

Andy Lewis, the guy who ran the "toxic" preschool on Dean Street in Boerum Hill (left) -- and was subsequently indicted for defrauding the National Child Food Program of more than $500,000 -- is opening up a summer camp in Fort Greene.

According to the Brooklyn Eagle, Lewis still owes thousands of dollars to the parents who signed up for his failed preschool in Boerum Hill.

Eagle: Lewis "is now looking for children to attend his new Fort Greene Day Camp, which he plans to operate out of either a public school or the Masonic Temple in Fort Greene."

Lewis is advertising a summer camp open house at South Oxford Space (on South Oxford Street in Fort Greene) for Wednesday night.

UPDATE: The open house was canceled! Angry parents were planning to stage a protest there to warn new parents not to leave deposits. Brooklyn Eagle
