BBS Day Camp

Why choose Pingry’s Big Blue Day Camp?

  • Is it because of our beautiful 200 acre Basking Ridge campus?
  • Our very own hiking trail and campsite where s’mores are served as a special treat?
  • Maybe it’s our competition sized swimming pool where each day camper will receive swim lessons?
  • Or our state of the art, basketball courts, softball and baseball fields and the numerous grass and turf fields where hours of playing time will be logged throughout the summer?
  • Or maybe it’s the delicious lunches provided by Sage Dining Services using Pingry kitchens and locally-sourced ingredients?
  • Whether in the classroom, the playing fields, the stages, or the pool, the goal of the Big Blue Summer program is to cultivate each child’s individuality and encourage him or her to be inspired every day.
  • That is what makes us Pingry.

What makes the day camp special, unique and possibly a life changing experience? Based on the camper, it could be the arts and crafts, the computer programing, the show of the week or the theme day where originality is expressed. Big Blue Summer Day Camp gives each camper the opportunity to experience new things and to build important life skills such as:

  • Independence
  • Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Willingness to experience new things
  • Determination
  • Integrity
  • Leadership
  • Making life-long friendships
