Brooks School Day Camp
The Group Three experience is focused on independence, team building, and healthy choices. These building blocks are naturally developed through a wide array of activities.
Children, between the ages of eight and ten years old, are more cognizant of where their skills fall, relative to their peers. They increasingly call attention to what is “hard” and “easy” for them, and this awareness has a tremendous impact on how they approach new situations, and what challenges they are willing to take on at camp.
The Brooks School Day Camp focuses on helping campers safely and comfortably push out of their comfort zones. Each two-week session is themed to create camaraderie and a sense of belonging that will enhance your child’s experience. The Group Three schedule is designed to be age-appropriate with the introduction of free-choice blocks and weekly team building using our ropes course.
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.
