An emergency contact and consent form and a current immunization record must be on file by the first day of the program. A full-time nurse is a member of the staff and is on the premises.

Professional Staff

The Creative Arts Program staff is selected for artistic and professional accomplishments as well as experience working with children. Under the direction of Ryan Henneberry (Berkeley Carroll Upper School Dean), the Creative Arts Program faculty creates a safe, exciting, diverse, inspired and artistic environment for our students to grow and learn.

Facilities & Lunch

The Creative Arts Program operates at the Berkeley Carroll Middle and Upper School campus at 181 Lincoln Place in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The Lincoln Place facility has been newly renovated with brand new music rooms, common spaces, play yard, and cafeteria. We also use the Berkeley Carroll Athletic facilities on President Street which includes our 75-foot swimming pool and gymnasium. We will also be using Brooklyn's back yard, Prospect Park. This will allow every student the opportunity for outdoor play and athletic courses.

We will be serving a nutritious lunch that includes sandwiches and a variety of cold salads in our newly renovated cafeteria. Hot lunch is served twice a week. Berkeley Carroll is allergen-aware.

Noontime Programs

Noontime begins at 1:10 every day. This is an opportunity for the whole CAP community to gather and celebrate the skills and talents of our students and faculty. We invite families and friends to join us and help our students develop poise and confidence by performing before a live audience.

Festival Day

Held on towards the end of each session from 9 am to 4 pm, this special day provides students with a chance to perform or exhibit the projects and pieces they have worked on during the summer. Parents, family members, and the community are invited to view and participate in presentations of music, dance concerts, art exhibits, choral demonstrations, scenes from plays, and athletic presentations. Festival Day in 2020 will be held on Thursday, July 23 for Session 1 and Thursday, August 13 for Session 2.
