Brooks School Day Camp

Ages 11-14

The Group Four experience is focused on leadership, taking ownership, and healthy risks. These building blocks are naturally developed through a wide array of activities.

Group Four campers are at the age of early adolescents, where they can project into the future. They can use thinking and reasoning to develop expectations of specific outcomes. While they can think abstractly, they still rely heavily on active learning with peers. The Brooks School Day Camp works diligently to help the campers become more active participants in exploring and understanding areas of interest.

At each activity area, campers will engage with a dedicated team of counselors whose background and passion are in youth development. Each two-week session is themed to create camaraderie and a sense of belonging that will enhance your child’s experience. The Group Four schedule allows for the most flexibility and self-directed choice. Participants are encouraged to try new experiences through the Flying Squirrel on our ropes course and partaking in the Survival Challenge.
