This summer, open your child's eyes to the world around them. The Albrook School is nestled on 6 ½ acres on Somerville Road in Bernard's Township, has air conditioned rooms, two heated in-ground pools, extensive playgrounds, and is staffed with Montessori trained teachers, experienced lifeguards and swim instructors.

Programs are open to Children 4 to 9 years of age to attend. All campers are required to be toilet trained. If your child requires daily medication or has a life-threatening allergy, please check with the office before registering. The Albrook School Summer Camp strives to be a nut free environment. Food that contains any form of nuts may NOT be brought to camp.

All campers will have a swim lesson in our heated pools each morning. Full-day students will also have a free swim in the afternoon. The camp provides a morning and afternoon snack. Full-day students bring their lunch.

In addition to the free swim, full- day campers will participate in group activities such as cooking, storytelling, sewing, crafts, art, board games, woodworking, jewelry making, and computers.
