Summers at Albrook

This summer open your child's eyes to the world around them.   The Albrook School, which is nestled on 6 1/2 acres on Somerville Road in Bernards Township, has air conditioned rooms, two heated in-ground pools, extensive playgrounds, and is staffed with Montessori trained teachers and experienced lifeguards and swim instructors. Each program is instructed by a trained teacher.

Children must be 4 years old to attend the summer program. All campers must be completely toilet trained. If your child requires daily medication or has a life threatening allergy, please check with the office before registering.

Each camper will have a swimming lesson in our heated pools each morning. Full day campers will also have a free swim in the afternoon. A morning and an afternoon snack will be provided. We will provide one special lunch each session for campers who attend full days. Full day children bring their own lunch. The Albrook School Summer Camp strives to be a nut free environment. Food that contains any form of nuts may not be brought to camp.

In addition to the free swim, full day campers will participate in group activities such as: cooking, storytelling, sewing, crafts, art, board games, woodworking, jewelry making, computers, etc.
