Summer Camp for Children

SummerCamp-2015

About Summer Camp

Brightside Academy offers an engaging summer camp program for school-age children 5- to 12-years-old from June through August (September in NY). Our summer camp program provides a variety of hands-on experiences that encourage critical thinking, problem solving, innovation, creativity, and collaboration. Enriching teacher-led projects stimulate child discovery through small and large group activities.

Summer is one of the most exciting times of the year for school-age children and every year the kids in our summer camp program have a great time. In last year’s end of summer survey, 76% of the children said they had a fun time and 3 out of 4 shared they would like to return to the program the following year!

Exciting Weekly Themes

This year’s summer camp experience is taking our children around the world and into space. We will be celebrating the fine arts as well as the art of storytelling. Hands-on experiences, interesting discussions, performances, and creative activities and games will provide a camp environment focused on personal growth, enrichment, and FUN! Some of the weekly themes summer camp children will explore this year include: Leadership and Teamwork, Superheroes, Engineering, Through the Decades, Summer Olympics, and Celebrating a Summer of Successes.

Fun Daily Experiences

The children will experience fun-filled days through a balanced approach to self-discovery and learning, active play and rest, as well as indoor and outdoor experiences taking into account each child’s needs. A substantial portion of the day will include opportunities for active, hands-on discovery in all areas of the classroom as well as the outdoors.

Field Trips They Love

Throughout the summer, fun and engaging field trips enhance the children’s learning. We are finalizing the trip schedule for 2017. Below is a list of some of the fun trips our kids enjoyed in 2016:
