Day Camp
Brooklyn, New YorkMap

Summers are for having fun. It's a time to spend with friends. To make memories and share experiences that last a lifetime. That's what Mill Basin Day Camp is all about. Mill Basin Day Camp is dedicated to providing an exciting and fulfilling camp experience for both children and their parents by providing of fun, recreational, social and educational activities. We have grown over the past 14 years to become the most popular summer camp program in the Brooklyn / Queens areas. At least that is what the kids tell us.

Our staff consists of professionals, many of whom continue to work in child related fields throughout the year. Our directorial staff is comprised of licensed NYC Department of Education teachers and deans in various elementary and high schools. All group leader staff are trained in CPR and First Aid. Aquatics programs are staffed by certified and licensed personnel, as required by the NYC Board of Health and American Red Cross. We equip our staff and facility with the latest and most modern safety and technological products in order to maintain constant contact and security both on and off the camp facility. Campers also receive Camp Gear which they use throughout the summer.

Our modern, fully air-conditioned facility offers a wide range of activities for children entering Pre-K thru 9th grade in the upcoming September scholastic year. There are Five (5) individual camp programs. Each camp has its own unique and innovative program that best suits the needs of the varying ages of our campers. Each group has various methods for integrating new campers into their groups. Head Counselors are trained to make sure that all campers are introduced to the other campers and are made to feel part of the group in the first few minutes of the camp day. Directors are also at hand to help new campers make any adjustments that they may need.

The typical camp day begins with a first activity at 9:00 am. There are 3 periods in the morning, then lunch, 3 periods in the afternoon, then snack, and then 1 final activity before dismissal. Activities are both indoor and outdoor and are balanced accordingly.

Safety is our highest priority at Mill Basin Day Camp. Throughout the building there are video cameras that are taping at all times. Every activity room is equipped with a phone that is directly connected to 911 and the main camp office via intercom. We also have a public address system throughout the facility. Each of our Directors carry 2-way Phones/Radios which keep us in constant contact.

We realize and understand the pressures facing today's working parents so we have designed a very flexible registration program. Changing your summer schedule by adding, subtracting or changing weeks is never a problem at any time. If summer school is a worry for you, our program is entirely refundable at any time prior to the first day of camp.

Families are always invited to come in for a personal tour of the facility and to discuss the camp program with you at length. It would be our pleasure having you.
