Running Brook offers day camps for kids aged 3-12 from June through August. Campers are grouped by age with a maximum of 20 campers per group and a counselor to camper ratio of 1:5. Kids take on new challenges, try new things, and form new relationships.
Campers enjoy a variety of activities, including music, sports, drama, arts & crafts, Legos, karate, yoga, and cooperative games, among others. Swimming is a key component of the program. All campers have a full hour of swimming each day, which includes Red Cross instructional swim class and free swim time.
