Camp at a Glance

Pingry’s Big Blue Summer Day Camps offer comprehensive programming for campers aged 3-14 years (rising preschool-8th grade). Campers at Big Blue Summer Day Camps 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 Mini 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 leveled swim lesson is scheduled each morning in our indoor pool, and in the afternoons, campers who are rising 1st-8th graders more deeply explore an area of interest, and special activities & challenges each week. Lunch, with hot and cold options, is included for morning and full-day campers, and snack is included in all options.

Campers get the optimal Pingry Big Blue Summer experience when enrolled in the full 7 week camp, but day camps are available on a weekly basis as well. The BBS Day Camp is a half day AM camp, and becomes a full day camp when paired with one of our amazing half day PM Partner Programs or Signature Programs. This ensures that each camper gets a comprehensive learning experience and is able to engage in activities of their interest, maximizing fun and productivity!


Campers can register for single weeks, or all 7 weeks.
