Children's Classic Day Camp

Welcome to the Berkeley Carroll Classic Day Camp, where friendship, fun, and new experiences await. In this program, children explore their interests, stretch their imaginations, and nurture their talents by participating in a wide array of camp activities. Participants are divided into two broad categories: Junior Camp for children entering PreKindergarten and Kindergarten, and Senior Camp for children entering grades 1 through 3. Every group has a head counselor, an assistant counselor, and a counselor in training. The camp maintains a ratio of one adult for every six children.

The Berkeley Carroll Classic Day Camp is made up of several core elements:

MUSIC

A music specialist teaches all campers, with a focus on singing songs, playing instruments for accompaniment, and understanding rhythm. 

VISUAL ART

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. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

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

Swimming instruction takes place in our 75-foot long indoor pool. Campers have swimming sessions with professional Water Safety Instructors four times a week. 

TRIPS & SPECIAL EVENTS

Campers participate in exciting field trips and special events every Wednesday morning. Possible trips include the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Prospect Park Zoo, Puppetworks, Brooklyn Museum and the Painted Pot.

THEME BASED PROJECTS & ACTIVITIES

All campers celebrate a designed theme each week, and participate in games, activities and projects that center around that theme. Possible themes have included Superheroes, Space Explorers, Time Travelers, Under the Sea and Animal Planet.
