Big Blue Summer Day Camp

Pingry’s Big Blue Summer Day Camps offer comprehensive programming for campers aged 3-14 years (rising preschool-Grade 8). Campers at Big Blue Summer Day Camp explore a variety of age-appropriate activities as they work to develop their Big Blue Summer Honor C.O.D.E. competencies: counselors encourage campers to be Curious, Open, Dedicated, and Enthusiastic as they create in our art studios, compete on our athletic fields, explore our nature trails, and work together on STEAM challenges.

Rising preschoolers enroll in the Big Blue Summer Minis Camp–a special place where discoveries are made not only on the fields, along the hiking trails, and in the art studios—but in every puddle, shadow, and pile of sand. Our BBS Minis Camp program feeds on the natural wonder of this age group by allowing plenty of time for creative play and guided investigation. Our Minis Counselors receive special training to work with this age group under the close guidance of the Minis-Kinder Division Leader.

For campers of all ages, a small-group, leveled swim lesson is scheduled each morning in our full-sized indoor pool. In the afternoons, campers who are rising first through eighth graders explore an area of interest more deeply, and enjoy special activities and challenges each week. Catered lunch, with hot and cold options, is included for morning and full-day campers, and snack is included in all options.

Campers enjoy the optimal Big Blue Summer experience when enrolled in the full eight weeks of camp. Have other summer plans? Day camps are available for individual week registration as well. Full Day, Half Day AM, and Half Day PM options are available to all age groups during all eight weeks of camp, and BBS Day Camp can be paired with our half-day Partner Camps or Signature Camps to create a full day of perfectly-tailored fun!
