Packer Summer Camp


Packer Summer Camp has been a beloved part of the Brooklyn Heights summer scene since 1972. Each June and July for these many years, we’ve had the privilege of reopening our campus campground to welcome students from all over the city and beyond for six weeks of classic day camp, done Packer-style.

What’s kept us going for so long is our program and our people. Each member of our team takes pride in creating an environment where campers feel safe, supported, and ready to tackle adventures big and small. From forging a new friendship, to exploring novel interests, to holding their own at the ping-pong table, we’re committed to making each camper’s experience a memorable one.

So whether you join us for one week, or stick around for the whole summer, we hope it won’t take long for you to see why everyone belongs at Packer Summer Camp.

One Camp, Endless Possibilities

Packer Summer Camp

While our unique program offers something for everybody, we believe that certain summer camp essentials shouldn’t be missed. That’s why we build every camper’s schedule around traditional favorites like scavenger hunts, water games, nature skills, tie-dying, and more.  Spread out across Packer's campus, Cadman Plaza, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and more, these activities lay the foundation of the Packer Summer Camp experience.

In addition to our classic summer fare, we offer extraordinary opportunities for campers to pursue their passions and develop their talents via our Packer+ Enrichment Courses. Scattered throughout each day and run by specialists who approach their areas of expertise with a fun-first mindset, these lively and engaging sessions are designed to challenge and entertain. Whether it’s sports, theater, robotics, music, or visual arts, every camper is sure to find something they’ll love.

This distinctive combination of quintessential camp offerings and exciting Enrichment Courses is what makes our program stand out from the pack. Equal parts fun and inspirational, every day at Packer Summer Camp presents new possibilities for children to explore and grow as they realize their limitless potential.
 

Program Structure

Please note that the Packer campus is undergoing a major renovation project. Because of this, we will have limited access to some spaces including our Garden. While we hope to be able to run our program with minimal interruption, we may need to modify our day-to-day activities (potentially even in real-time) to accommodate the sometimes unpredictable nature of construction.
