AFTER SCHOOL REGISTRATION 2014-2015 IS NOW OPEN!
The New Adventures Day Camp is celebrating our seventeenth year of operation! The guiding philosophy of our camp continues to be that all children, provided with a safe and nurturing environment, will flourish by exploring the rich and unique opportunities New York City and the tri-state region have to offer. This year our camp will be located at PS 277 at 2529 Gerritsen Avenue in Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn. Due to construction planned for PS 222, we will be unable to return there this summer. Our new facility includes a special children's playground, gymnasium, a classroom for arts and crafts, a media room and a large lunchroom for games and other activites. All swimming (instructional and recreational) will take place at the Paedergat Swim Club as well as the pool at Jones Beach. This summer, we will again offer a quality gymnastics experience at the Brooklyn Gymnastics Center. In addition, we will be able to utilize the extensive park facilities adjacent to PS 277. We will also take advantage of the many resources of the New York metropolitan area through a variety of day trips. For our older campers, we offer overnight trips to Lake George, Boston and Club Getaway in Kent, Connecticut.
While we are focused on the needs of our campers, we are also well aware of the daily issues facing working parents. We have created a schedule that is flexible for parents with the option of selecting from two to eight week sessions and three to five days per week.
The New Adventures Day Camp offers three different choices for your child based on his/her grade in September, 2014. Pathfinders (entering grades K through Four), Voyagers (entering grades Five and Six) and Teen Trek (entering grades Seven to Ten). Please look through the brochure to find out more about each program. We request that all parents provide an email address so the camp can communicate with you. Parents are also encouraged to use our website for filling out forms. Our office is always available to answer any questions you may have and you can reach us at 718/965-4757. We look forward to a working together with you to create a wonderful summer for your child!
