Specially designed for the varied needs of our youngest participants, Pioneers Camp has programs and activities that are set up to enhance our little one’s experiences and to promote their emotional and physical well-being. Snacks are provided daily. Groups are arranged according to age and are supervised by experienced adult teachers and assistants. Activities include arts and crafts, sports, swim instruction, games, music and dance, gymnastics, drama and more.
Dismissal time is at 3:30 PM. If a child has an older sibling or if they require transportation they will remain at the camp with their staff until regular 4:10 PM dismissal.
Day trips are once a week on Thursdays to local attractions and sites. Trips are half days and the campers they are back at the camp building around lunch time and have afternoon activities (no swimming).
Trip schedules will be posted on our website and can be accessed by logging into your camp portal account prior to the start of camp. They will also be discussed at length at pre-camp parent meetings. All trips are included in camp fees.
Swimming is a 3 times a week activity in Brooklyn’s largest outdoor pool (weather permitting). We also have a new Sprinkler Park for our littlest campers 1 day a week.
Each camper will be evaluated individually on his or her swimming skill and ability, and they are placed in the proper level swim group. Beginners are given limited group instruction one or two times a week by our fully licensed and trained staff. All New York City Department of Health and American Red Cross requirements are strictly adhered to and enforced. We also have recently installed a small fun sprinkler park for our youngest campers.
