First and foremost, I would like to WELCOME you to the 2017 Stargazer Day Camp Summer Season! We are excited to have you be a part of our wonderful program, as we strive to provide you and your children with a fun and enjoyable camp experience. It excites us to resume our program in the Mill Basin community of Brooklyn at the Fillmore Academy, PS 207, where we will continue to extend our services to you. Camp will commence at 8:00am on Monday, July 3rd.
I, Gordon Harry, am the Camp Director and oversee the daily goings-on of the Stargazer Program. It brings me great pride and joy to run Stargazer, as we are a boutique camp that only accepts a limited number of participants each year. This allows for a more close-knit, family-style experience; and, a more centralized focus on campers in particular rather than a loose, distant relationship between camper and counselor.
As you may already know, we are a very active camp that exercises everyday and encourages physical activity via sports, dance, and other recreational activities. Beyond the physical aspect of camp, we have also allotted a special one-hour time slot for Summer Reading for the campers to read and review with the supervision and help of the counselors. This way their brains, as well as their bodies, stay active and stimulated. So, we ask that you send your child with a book and/or work packet everyday, whether it is required or recreational.
Thank you in advance for becoming a part of the Stargazer family, and taking the time to read this address. It is my principal hope that we exceed your expectations, and make this an enjoyable summer for all parties. Please be well, and feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or well-wishes.
Come on COME ALL! We look forward to seeing and having you on July 3rd!
