Summer @ Brookwood
Summer is a nice break from the rigors of the academic year, however, we also know that it’s important for kids to maintain routines and continue learning throughout June, July and August while still having fun.
We are proud to offer summer camp programs from June 15 through August 14 that combine the exciting and entertaining activities children long for during their “months off” with academic enrichment that will keep them hungry to learn more each day. Summer@Brookwood offers open enrollment to any child entering Kindergarten through 8th grade. Our unique full- and morning half-day summer camps will keep your child engaged while proving to them that summer learning CAN be so much fun!
We employ professional educators who have experience in the specialized fields in which they are teaching. Our summer camps provide kids with a perfect mix of focused educational time, individualized attention, free exploration, and lots of fun! In the morning, campers will participate in specialized programming (view our camp descriptions to learn more) and in the afternoon, campers will unwind with their new friends and participate in traditional camp activities such as sports, art and crafts, engineering, free play and more.

Allie and I are so excited about this upcoming year at Summer@Brookwood. We are both adamant lovers of all things camp, and cannot wait to offer more weeks, more options, and more flexibility for your camper(s) and your family. This summer, we are thrilled to announce that we will include more full-day specials for older campers, day-camp in the afternoons, and longer days for those who need it, all while keeping the engaging and educational morning half-day specials that makes Summer@Brookwood so unique. We hope you are as excited as we are, and we will see you all soon!

Counselor in Training Program
Summer@Brookwood’s Counselor In Training (CIT) Program for rising 9th and 10th graders provides an opportunity to experience camp while gaining leadership skills and having fun! In the morning, CITs will be assigned to assist with a specialized camp. In the afternoon, they will help counselors run our traditional “day camp” including sports, art, engineering, free play and more. Our goal is to help each CIT develop independence and confidence, and gain new professional skills. Summer@Brookwood’s CIT Program fosters leadership, problem-solving and various other skills. CITs will learn through hands-on experience working alongside counselors and lead counselors every day, with frequent opportunities to give and receive feedback. If your child is interested, please fill out the application and we will be in touch soon. The cost of this program is $200 per week.
