Junior Players

Ages 5-7

Junior Players explore unique weekly themes through the creative components of arts and crafts, music, and performing arts!

In this integrated arts program, participants rotate daily through the creative components, as they collaborate on a creative showcase that combines all of their artistic experiences. The schedule balances indoor and outdoor activities and gets kids engaged in an immersive and age-appropriate way.

Designed specifically for children ages 5-7, participants will rotate daily through creative components that emphasize arts & crafts, music, and performing arts. Outdoor activities complement and balance the creative focus to provide a well-rounded, immersive, and fun experience. Each activity is led by a dedicated team of counselors whose background and passion are in youth development. The bonus of having the opportunity to work with a choreographer, art director, and music director, in the creative components, brings an invaluable depth of knowledge and years of experience to this program.

This full-day program operates from 9:00-4:00 daily. Bus transportation and extended day are also available.

2022 Themed Weeks

Blast Off!: Let’s take art to new heights as we explore space through song, dance, performance, and visual art projects. The sky is the limit for creating and exploring new realms! See the daily schedule.

Legendary Creatures!: Mermaids, dragons, and werewolves, oh my! Campers are in for a real adventure this week as they access every ounce of their creativity to bring these creatures (and more!) to life through art and performance. See the daily schedule.

Full STEAM Ahead!: The camp train is at full speed this week as we explore the relationships between Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. They will combine all of their talents, skills, and interests to create original stories, songs, dances, and artwork. See the daily schedule.

Story Explorers!: We’re going to dive into favorite works of literature and bring them to life onstage! This cross-media application gives campers the opportunity to bring some of their favorite characters and worlds to life through art, music, and performance. See the daily schedule.

Around the World!: We can’t wait to learn more about art and culture from around the world this week! Campers will learn from each other as they share art and performance from their own cultures as well as explore a new art form each day! See the daily schedule.

About the Space

The Brooks Studios and Stages Program provides participants with a variety of activities and spaces that no other local camp can equal. There is plenty of room to run and play from tennis courts and fields to an archery range and gymnastics center. In addition to taking full advantage of our 270-acre campus on the shore of Lake Cochichewick, our newly constructed Center for the Arts building will house the creative components.

A Typical Day

Campers rotate through a schedule that changes daily and will ensure your child looks forward to camp every day. In these time blocks, students collaborate with one another, professional instructors, and counselors. There are outdoor breaks built into the day to allow students to expand their minds and stretch their bodies. Outdoor activities complement and balance the creative components to provide a well-rounded, immersive, and fun experience. Please note, unlike the Day Camp, swimming is not part of this program.
