Welcome 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 nine. 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. The Junior and Senior Campers are subdivided by age, and group sizes are kept small to ensure personal attention and to maximize socialization and fun. Every group has a head counselor, an assistant counselor, and a counselor in training or junior counselor. Typically, 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. Campers have music lessons twice a week.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. Campers have art lessons twice a week.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. Campers typically have PE two times a week.SWIMMING
Swimming instruction takes place in our 75-foot long indoor pool. Campers have swimming sessions with time for professional instruction as well as recreational swim. Swim sessions are 30 minutes in duration, and typically take place four times a week.TRIPS AND SPECIAL EVENTS
Campers participate in exciting field trips and special events. Typically, there are bowling outings, visits to museums, parks, and Puppetworks. Field Day and Carnival Day are some of the special events in which all children participate.
