In the Brooks School Day Camp, children flourish in a supportive atmosphere, acquire new skills, stir interest, make friends, and journey through memorable summer adventures. This program serves children ages three to fourteen. Activity areas range from the traditional to the unique. A summer at Brooks will allow your child to not only do what they enjoy but also expand their interests. Full-day and half-day options are available.

Broadway at Brooks is our premier theatre camp, which is perfect for young artists looking to take their theatrical training to the next level. The two-week summer theatre workshop is for children ages 9 through 14. Theatre professionals with an invaluable depth of knowledge and years of experience in the field provide a meaningful and long-lasting experience for our students. This is a chance for students to learn from the best the area has to offer and become a triple threat performer.

ARTvernturers is a weekly themed program that allows participants to explore theatre, visual arts, and music! In this integrated arts program, participants rotate daily through three creative components, as they collaborate on a creative showcase that combines all of their artistic experiences. Outdoor activities complement and balance the arts’ focus to provide a well-rounded, immersive, and fun experience.

The Leaders-In-Training program helps mentor young adults into becoming future leaders — this three-year program guides participants on a journey of self-development through classroom and hands-on application of skills. Each summer, young leaders make a four-week commitment to their personal growth.
