Rising 1st-2nd Graders

Mariners Hill Camp Program

Mariners Hill Camp (MHC) is a special seven-week program specifically designed to meet the needs of rising first and second graders. Because young children are most successful in an environment that is stable and predictable, Mariners Hill Camp participants remain in their camp cohort for the entire seven weeks of the summer program.

MHC is a fully functioning camp under the umbrella of Brewster Day Camp. In addition to the programs built into the Mariners Hill Camp schedule, campers also swim twice a day and participate in Archery, BDOC (Brewster Day Camp Outdoor Challenge) and COOP (Community of Play) each week.

I love how much the kids PLAY at BDC!
BDC creates a space where campers can really thrive as individuals and feel good about who they are.
The way children are encouraged to have good spirit, kindness and hope is so important and you all do it so well!
Brewster Day Camp is an amazing place! Welcoming and belonging as core values were apparent from the first moments we stepped onto campus.
BDC is welcoming, inclusive, and encouraging! Everyone from the counselors to the parking lot staff are amazing. BDC is the best. Seriously, this is the best money I've spent on my child ever.
There is so much spirit and energy flowing through BDC! And best of all, BDC is inclusive of everyone…when you come to BDC, you are family.
BDC offers the flexibility of a day camp and the strong culture and tradition of an overnight camp community!
You create a warm, nurturing environment that is bursting with a feeling of community. Friday morning assemblies and Family Swim are a great example of that.
We love so much about BDC: the wonderful staff, the variety and quality of activities, and the overall atmosphere! BDC is one of the most genuine, warm-hearted places and we feel lucky to have it.
Brewster Day Camp makes everyone feel welcome and a part of the community. I’ve never seen anything like it!
