BBS Day Camp

MISSION AND MOTTO

Pingry Big Blue Summer campers and staff live by the Honor C.O.D.E.

As they encounter new activities and challenges, campers are encouraged to be Curious, Open, Dedicated and Enthusiastic while remaining true to Pingry's greatest value, Honor.

Honor at camp is defined as respecting others, the environment, and one's self. Throughout their day, Pingry counselors and staff encourage campers to develop their self-confidence, collaborative and problem-solving skills by asking questions, considering many views, and working toward goals with a positive attitude!

We have 8 weeks of full or half day fun! Each week is designed around a different theme, including specialty teachers and special events. Camp rotations include daily swim lessons, STEAM, art, sports, and outdoor education. Big Blue Summer Day Camp gives each camper the opportunity to experience new things and to build important life skills such as:

  • Independence
  • Confidence
  • Team Work
  • Determination
  • Integrity
  • Leadership
  • Honor
