The Senior Camp is an engaging program for the day camp's older participants. Depending on enrollment, there are generally three groups within the Senior Camp: children entering first grade, children entering second grade, and children entering third grade. Every group has a head counselor, an assistant counselor, and two junior counselors.
Senior Campers participate in age-appropriate learning activities that emphasize creativity and self-discovery. Specialist teachers in art, music, and physical education/swimming give the children a diverse and active camp experience. Our Senior Campers also participate in trips and special events on Wednesday mornings, such as roller skating at the LeFrak Center, the Urban Park Rangers program in Prospect Park, and bowling at Melody Lanes.
Twice a week, Senior Campers take part in a choice period, in which they may select one of several activities lead by our head counselors. These activities might include gardening, chess, cooking, sidewalk chalk drawing, science experiments, and more. Campers also have designated blocks in the day for projects, games and crafts based on the theme of the week.
Parents may register their children by the week or for the entire seven-week session. Senior Campers may also participate in a combination of the Classic Day Camp and specialty camps or sports camps.
