Albrook School Camp programs are open to children 4 to 9 years of age. All campers are required to be toilet trained.

Food that contains any form of nuts may NOT be brought to camp.

All campers will have a swim lesson in our heated pools each morning. Full-day students will also have a free swim in the afternoon. The camp provides a morning and afternoon snack. Full-day students bring their lunch.

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, and computers.
