Alternately, the fun and action-packed “Camp Grocery Store” is also open next week.
Why do so many summer camps fizzle out mid-August, as if parents automatically get three weeks off a the end of summer to hang around Sesame Place? While a few Brooklyn camps are still open this week, only a handful of holdouts go all the way up to Friday, August 31 this year. (School starts Sept. 6, and you’re pretty much SOL from Labor Day ’til then.) We found six places to park your kids next week, ranging in price from $335 to $450 for full days that range from six to eight hours. If you know of any other kids’ programs open for business next week, please add ‘em in the comments: (more…)
At ease, campers: time for your uniform check. Our big party is tomorrow and it’s imperative you use our checklist to help make the most out of summer camp. Why? Because your outfit might afford you some free drinks and prizes (good ones too)from the summer camp style council. We want to see your pasty legs. We want to see your badges of honor. We want to see you there, happy, drinking, and winning shit from our raffle. And most of all, we want to see your jorts. (more…)
Maybe you heard we’re having a party? A summer camp party? And what’s more summer camp than awkward 13-year-olds making out at the camp dance to “Everlasting Love” or looking up and seeing your summer crush doing that with someone who’s not you? Ah, anyway… We need some music for this party, dammit, and so we want to know: what’s your summer song? (more…)

The 90s time warp theme to summer this year (see: movies, concerts) has Team Brokelyn nostalgic for the summertime of our formative years. So to celebrate our third birthday, we’re recapturing the pubescent innocence and flirtatious revelry of capture the flag and Bud Ice flavored first kisses by the campfire with an adult summer camp party at Good Co. on June 21! UPDATE: We’ve moved the party to June 28 at Crown Victoria!
In the spirit of last year’s Spring Gala and the Brokelyn Ball before that, we’ve got enough ideas to make it a sleep-away camp, but we want you to have the time of your life (couldn’t resist the DD reference) so we want your input, campers: Tell us your favorite summer camp traditions you’d like to see paired with copious amounts of alcoholic bug juice. Games? Ghost stories? Activities? Musical numbers? Talent show? Best summer lovin’ stories? We’ll be reprising our kick-ass raffle with loads of prizes from Brooklyn businesses. Tell us what experiences are on your Brooklyn summer bucket list and we’ll wrangle some up for you for the party. (more…)
