Young People’s Camp of Brooklyn uses 20 passenger air conditioned buses. We will pick up each child between 7:15 and 8:15 with door to door transportation. Children will be home between 3:45 and 4:45 in the afternoon.
Try and have your child outside waiting 10 minutes before the bus is supposed t o pick him or her up. If the bus fails to make it to the house, please call the bus company as soon as possible. Sometimes, they come back to pick up your child.
If your child cannot attend camp for the delay, please call the bus company as soon as possible to notify them of this. The driver will notify me when he comes to camp in the morning.
I highly recommend that all children wear SNEAKERS every day. They will help cut down on blisters, bug bites, and small injuries. Wear light clothing, and always drink plenty of water. Pack lunch on a daily basis and only bring towels on swim days.
On swim days I find it easier for the child to wear the bathing suit all day because it easier to avoid changing especially for the younger child. When we are at the pool the children will be allowed to have their towel, and flip flops on deck. Please pack sunscreen!
Campers will be supervised in a group with an 8:1 camper to counselor ratio. For children of the age between 4 and 5 they will be supervised with a 4:1 ratio. The staff consists of teachers, college students and junior counselors that are in high school. My assistant directors will also be supervising along with me. The staff also consists of the proper amount of CPR/First Aid, Lifeguards, and RTE.
During the summer I try to limit the paid trips to just 2. Everything else is included in the program fee. I will send home and email notices about these trips.
All money for camp should be paid by June 15th of that year. I have payment plans that are available to start as early as when the summer ends. Most people start the payment plan in January.
On the child’s first day of camp they will receive their shirts, bags, and water bottle. They will also be given an orientation of the rules and regulations of camp on that day.
