Brooks School Day Camp
The Group Two experience is focused on social development, personal growth, and sense of community. These building blocks are naturally developed through a wide array of activities.
Children ages six and seven experience many changes in their lives. An increase in independence becomes more important now as events such as starting school bring children this age into regular contact with the larger world. Friendships become more and more important. Physical, social, and mental skills develop quickly at this time. This is a critical time for children to develop confidence in all areas of life, such as through friends and sports.
We know that children this age are naturally curious. The Group Two schedule is designed to be age-appropriate and support each child’s curiosity and sense of wonder. The Brooks School Day Camp cultivates each child’s curiosity and imagination through a variety of activities that introduce new skills and offer growth opportunities and social development. Each activity is led by 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.
Take a look at all your child will do during their time at Brooks by previewing the daily schedule.
Brooks School Day Camp provides participants with a variety of activities like no other local camp can equal. Taking full advantage of our 270-acre campus on the shore of Lake Cochichewick, our highly qualified staff offer specialized instruction in a wide array of activities. Children will engage in hands-on fun as they participate in both indoor and outdoor activities that change with each day.
