Q: My child does not go to the Brooklyn Heights Montessori School. Can she/he still camp here?
A: YES. Over half of our campers (65%) are from other public and independent schools
Q: What are the hours of camp?
A: Half Day Juniors are attend 8:30am to 12pm and Full Day Juniors attend from 8:30am to 3:00pm
Q: 3pm pick up is too early for me. Is there after camp?
A: Yes, it runs from 3-6pm and is $15 an hour. You are billed at the end of the session. There is NO AFTER CAMP on the last day of camp.
Q: What if I’m running late?
A: All campers go to after camp at the end of the day. If you will be later than 6pm, there is a 5 minute grace period. After 6:05pm there is a $1 per minute late charge.
Q: The dates of the sessions don’t work. Can I do some weeks and not others?
A: We encourage campers to enroll for full sessions but we understand families have complicated schedules. We will prorate weeks, but not by the day. Keep in mind there is a slightly higher rate for prorated weeks. Call the Director for more information.
Q: Is there a sibling discount?
A: Sorry, no.
Q: Are there ANY discounts?
A: The Early Bird Discount--register for complete sessions between January 24 and February 24 and receive 5% off the tuition. Keep in mind this discount does not apply to the $40 administrative fee.
Q: My friend’s child is coming to the camp. Can they be in the same group?
A: As long as they are in the same division and you indicate that when registering for camp. Keep in mind there are no guarantees that your camper will be placed with their friends; though, we make every effort to keep campers happy!
Q: My child doesn’t swim. How does that work?
A: Children are never forced to swim. We have a high counselor to camper ratio so there is always someone to sit on the side with a nervous camper and encourage them to get more comfortable around the water.
Q: Is lunch provided?
A: No. Snacks are provided!
Q: My camper has a nut allergy. How is that handled?
A: There are no nuts at camp--besides the staff!
Q: How do they travel to the pool?
A: Juniors take the bus, Intermediates and Senior walk.
Q: How do they travel to the park or to trips?
A: By good old-fashioned yellow school bus.
Q: What do campers have to wear?
A: Comfortable, summer clothes that can get messy! Sneakers or sandals with backs-no flip flops except at the beach. Campers will get a camp tee shirt that is required on Trip Days.
Q: What if our plans change? Do we get any money back?
A: Yikes! We understand plans change. If you make up your mind to drop out of your session(s) before May 15 let us know in writing and you will be refunded all tuition less the non-refundable deposit and non-refundable administrative fee.
