Ages 11-14

Empowering Young Leaders in Group Four – Embracing Ownership and Taking Healthy Risks.

The Group Four experience at Brooks School Day Camp is thoughtfully designed to foster leadership, ownership, and the courage to take healthy risks. These fundamental attributes naturally develop through a diverse range of engaging activities.

Campers in Group Four are entering the early stages of adolescence, a time when they begin to project into the future and use their thinking and reasoning abilities to develop expectations for specific outcomes. While they can think abstractly, they still rely heavily on active learning with their peers. At Brooks School Day Camp, we are committed to empowering campers to become active participants in exploring and understanding their areas of interest.

In every activity area, campers will interact with a dedicated team of counselors who are deeply passionate about youth development. Each two-week session is themed to foster camaraderie and a strong sense of belonging, enhancing your child’s overall experience. The Group Four schedule offers the utmost flexibility and encourages self-directed choices. Participants are encouraged to try new experiences, including the thrilling Flying Squirrel challenge on our ropes course and the exciting Survival Challenge.

Explore the incredible opportunities that await your child at Brooks by previewing our daily schedule. Join us in nurturing their leadership, ownership, and the courage to embrace healthy risks for a summer of growth and empowerment.
