3 Benefits of Summer Camp!
Summer camp gives children much needed exposure to the outdoors. All school year children are cooped up in schools with very little time to play outdoors and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Living in an urban environment like Brooklyn, NY there are not many accessible locations for children to explore. The weather of NYC often leaves much of the year unusable to outdoor activities, therefore being part of a summer camp in Brooklyn, children are given the opportunity to get out and play while being properly supervised.
Learn new things! Summer camp gives children exposure to new skills and activities in a safe and non-judgmental environment. We can all recall the first time we tried a new sport or tasted a new food. This can be a very intimidating experience! Being in summer camp, a child can do these thing among peers who are also experiencing them for the first time. Summer camp counselors are trained to give enthusiasm, help and not to criticize.
Make lifelong friends! Our children look forward all year to be reunited with their camp friends. The bonding experience during the summer is very profound because the campers are engaging in special activities, such as overnights or rock climbing along with their peers. Do you still have a friend from summer camp?
We can’t believe that 2016 is over! This year really flew by and now it is time to start planning for the summer. Summer camp 2017 is rapidly approaching and we have been feverously preparing for the last few months. Do you live in Brooklyn and need a Summer Camp? Campus Day Camp is located at Brooklyn College steps away from the Flatbush/Nostrand Junction. Summer Camp will run from June 29 through August 16 2017 this year. We recommend signing up for camp early this year as demand last year was very high, with many people ending up on the waiting list. Parents that register early get to take advantage of the early bird discount as well as have ample time to finish their balance before summer camp starts. Trip calendars will be available in May and we cannot wait to share the amazing schedule that we are planning this summer. As always the summer will be full of exciting and enriching trips that the campers love. We will be planning new overnights and extended day trips this summer as well as brand new in house activities.
Campus Day Camp makes it easy for parents to get started and register. A registration form may be filled out online or in person and when accompanied by a deposit the registration is complete! Parents may choose to leave a deposit over the phone and save the trouble of coming in. A medical form, trip itinerary and a few other items will need to be filled out before the first day of camp. Many forms are available on our website. You may fill out the registration form here: REGISTER. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the registration process or would like to tour the facility. We look forward to seeing everyone in summer camp this year!
