FAQs

Will lunch be provided?

Campers should bring their own lunch. Snacks will be provided. Campers are welcome to bring their own snacks if desired, but candy and gum are not allowed.

What trips do you plan on taking?

As our name proudly indicates, we are Camp Brooklyn! There will be bus trips to venues in our amazing borough and the surrounding areas, as well as trips to the beach. We will also explore the more immediate areas in and around Downtown Brooklyn on foot, with walking trips to local parks and play areas.

Who will be going on those trips?

The Kindergarten through 4th Grade Campers. Preschool campers will take plenty of walks to the neighboring parks and points of interest.

Will you have Aftercamp/Extended Day options?

Yes. We are offering Aftercamp, from 3:00 – 5:30pm, for an additional fee. You may register by the day for each two-week session (i.e. 2 Mondays, 2 Tuesdays, etc.). We will not be offering Aftercamp on a “drop-in” basis. A charge of $35 will be added to the campers account for late pickups.

Can I sign up for one week?

Campers sign up for a minimum of one 2-week session.

Do you offer any discounts?
We are not offering any discounts. Camp Brooklyn brings a unique experience that centers children and encourages their curiosity, creativity and joy. We focus our resources on quality programming while offering a competitive rate for families.
