F.A.Q.


What time does the bus pick up my child for camp?

Each child will be picked up between 7:15 and 8:30 AM. Drop off begins after 4:00 up until 5:45 PM.

What do I do if my child misses the bus?

Please contact our office @718-951-9732 for further instruction. 

What do I do if my child is sick and will be absent for the day?

If your child cannot attend camp for the day, please call the camp office @ 718-951-9732

What should my child wear or bring during the day?

Please have your child wear comfortable clothing and SNEAKERS. Our campers are expected to bring lunch on a daily basis. 

What should my child bring 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 and label all items. 

What is included in the tuition?

Great question! Your tuition covers all expenses. Door to door transportation, all trips and activities, 2 camp shirts, bag, and insurance. Meals are NOT included, parents are asked to send their child in with lunch on a daily basis.  

Who will be supervising my child each day?

Our staff is made up of college students, former campers and certified teachers. Our ratio of campers to staff range from 5:1 to 10:1, dependent on camper age. All ratios are with the NYC Department of Health.  Each employee is checked through the NYS database system.

 

Do you have medical personnel?

Young People's Day Camp of Brooklyn employs several NYS licensed Emergency Medical Technicians. In addition we have many staff members who are certified in CPR/First Aid/Lifeguard. 

When is payment due and do you have a payment plan?

All money for camp should be paid by the week prior to your child's start date. For your convenience we have flexible payment plans to fit your budget. 

When does my child receive their camp shirts and bags?

Each child will receive 2 shirts and a bag on their first day.  Young People's Day Camp of Brooklyn requires your child to wear his/her shirt everyday for security purposes. If additional shirts are needed, you may purchase them at anytime by calling the office @ 718-951-9732

What is the best way to reach the camp?
