elcome to the Berkeley Carroll Classic Day Camp. Friendship, fun, and new experiences await our campers. Children explore their interests, stretch their imaginations, and nurture their talents by participating in a wide array of camp activities.
The Camp offers an enriched program for students ages three to eight. Participants are divided into groups by age, and group sizes are kept small to ensure personal attention and to maximize socialization and learning. Every group has a head counselor, an assistant counselor, and a counselor in training or junior counselor.
Campers participate in age-appropriate learning activities that emphasize creativity and social skills. Nurturing by affectionate and attentive staff gives each child a strong start toward building self-confidence. The Berkeley Carroll Classic Day Camp is made up of several core elements:
A music specialist teaches all campers, with a focus on singing songs, playing instruments for accompaniment, and understanding rhythm.
Working with their counselors and with an art specialist, the children create art in many media, such as paints, cray-pas, clay, yarn, fabric, collage, and mosaics.
In addition to time for free play and outdoor recreation, campers spend time each week with a physical education specialist learning cooperative games and "lead-up" skills for team sports.
Swimming instruction takes place in our 75-foot long indoor pool. Campers have a daily swimming session (when not on trips) with time for professional instruction as well as recreational swim.
TRIPS AND SPECIAL EVENTS
Campers participate in exciting field trips and special events. Typically, there are bowling outings, visits to museums, parks, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Field Day and Carnival Day are some of the special events in which all children participate.
