WELCOME TO SUMMER CAMP!

Welcome to Calabrese Summer Camp with Brandywine Valley Sports and Recreation!  Our summer day camp is designed for children in Kindergarten through 8th grade.  We will explore arts and crafts, music, science, cooking, sports, and nature.  There will be one to two field trips per week to different locations in the area that fit in with the themes we have for each week.  We provide a safe, fun, and positive environment where your child can grow, learn and make life-long friends.

 

Our summer camp is located in the beautiful New Garden Township Park and Buildings.  New Garden Park is a quiet park situated in-between the New Garden Township Building and the Southern Chester County Regional Police Department Building.  Camp will be at New Garden Township community rooms, and the pavilions, trails, sports fields, and playground at New Garden Park. Each week offers a special theme in addition to daily camp activities such as kickball, volleyball, four-square, and arts and crafts. For more information, click HERE to visit our FAQ page!
