Summer Sports Programs

2018 Summer Sports Camps

We deliver a comprehensive schedule of specialized instruction for boys and girls ages 6-18. Our approach combines individual athletic training and cooperative teamwork with competitive play – always emphasizing true sportsmanship and safety.

We are proud to have experienced instructors – from collegiate coaches who have won National Championships to certified martial artists who have competed in the Olympic Games – on staff to coach your camper.  Local collegiate athletes also assist our senior counselors. Our state-of-the-art indoor facilities include amenities such as three full-size basketball courts and a four-lane track.

Brookdale Camps boast a camper-to-staff ratio below 10-to-1. This allows our counselors to provide individualized training. It’s important to us that your child not only has fun but learns the sport from highly-experienced instructors.

At Brookdale, the Jersey Blues Sports Camps combines caring, experienced counselors with Brookdale’s outstanding facilities to provide one of the state’s most exciting, fun-filled and reputable day camps. See you this summer!
