Our Mission!

"The Flatbush Park Day Camp is a Jewish Day Camp, under the auspices of Flatbush Park Jewish Center, which itself is operated according to the principles, laws and customs of the Torah and modern Orthodox Judaism. 

All campers at the Flatbush Park Day Camp are expected to adhere to these principles and laws while they attend camp, whether on camp grounds or on trips off camp grounds.

Our program is designed to promote sound recreational, educational and religious development of all our campers, regardless of their degree of religious affiliation. At Flatbush Park, we set high standards geared towards providing all our campers with a summer of fun growth, learning and enjoyment, all carried out in a safe environment. The day camp, campers and home must share the same goals. Through mutual concern and cooperation, we can look forward to a successful summer for all."

- Kevin Adelson, Director


ABOUT US!

Our day camp program combines physical, educational and cultural activities for all our campers, while insuring the development of each child’s individual abilities.

Activities include arts and crafts, music, dance, sports (age appropriate), ceramics, MMA, tennis, swim and Judaic studies. There is a daily minyan for davening for all children (yeshiva and non-yeshiva children).

Swimming instruction is geared to meet the children’s individual needs. All campers are evaluated during the first few days to determine their swimming abilities and skills levels, and are grouped accordingly.

Flatbush Park Day Camp has a program that is tailored to meet the needs of your children, ages 3 through 13 (entering grade 8).  Our Pre-school consists of nursery (ages 3-4), pre-kindergarten (ages 4-5) and kindergarten groups (age 5).  Our Day Camp accepts children entering 1st grade through 4th grade (generally ages 6-9), our Senior Division accepts children entering 5th and sixth grade (generally ages 10-11), and our Tweens program is for children entering grades 7 & 8 (generally 11 to 13 years of age).  Each division has its division head to ensure greater hands-on supervision of all counselors and campers.

HEALTH & SAFETY!


Flatbush Park Day Camp has an infirmary staffed full time by a licensed registered nurse (NYS) and a nurse’s assistant, both holding current certification in advanced first aid, CPR for adult, child and infant and RTE (responding to everyone).

In addition, we have arrangements with local physicians (ophthalmologists, pediatricians, internists, orthopedists and surgeons) to bring a camper or staff member for treatment, if the need arises.  In the event our registered nurse determines that additional medical treatment is necessary, we will make every effort to contact the parent/guardian.
