Specialty Day Camps

UPDATE for Summer 2021: Berkeley Carroll will run in-person summer programs for the summer of 2021. We are currently working on planning our 2021 program and establishing protocols to make sure the summer is safe for families and staff. We hope to have our offerings updated on our website sometime in January and our goal is to have registration open in late February. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at


Welcome to the Berkeley Carroll specialty camps! These unique programs offer children the opportunity to explore new subjects, cultivate existing interests, and develop lifelong skills. Each camp is devoted to a specific subject, from rock music to earth science, and studio arts to circus arts, to ensure the most in-depth, appropriate exposure to the topic possible. Berkeley Carroll specialty camps offer engaging programming for students ages five to ten. Each camp is geared towards a specific age group or groups, and class 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.


As with the Classic Day Camp, all specialty camps are made up of some core elements:

Visual Art

When not focusing on their specialty, campers are usually working with their counselors, to create art in many media, such as paints, cray-pas, clay, yarn, fabric, collage, and mosaics.


Physical Education

During the week, campers are encouraged to play actively through yard time and free play. Campers usually have yard time twice a day in one of our outdoor yards. Younger campers will enjoy the outdoors in our backyard playground while older campers utilize our rooftop playground.



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.
