Summer Day Camp
This summer, The ABBCNJ, in conjunction with Namaxé Yoga, will offer a comprehensive literacy and cultural arts day camp program. Our students will be at ease in a warm and welcoming, familial environment where they will receive daily literacy lessons, as well as Yoga and Capoeira. In addition to these regularly scheduled classes, students will receive “specials” each day, such as dance, drumming, and fine arts. The camp can accommodate any child between the ages of 5-12, small group instruction will be geared towards different ages. The camp will be run by center director, David Morgan and yoga studio manager, Danielle Mastrogiovanni. In addition to being a capoeira instructor, David has a degree in Social Work and has worked as both a teacher and a summer camp director. In addition to being a certified yoga instructor, Danielle has multiple degrees in education and has taught almost every grade from pre k-middle school.
The summer program will give children an opportunity to study the cultural arts from both an academic and experiential perspective.
Summer Day Camp dates for children ages 5-12 are August 12-August 23, Monday to Friday. Camp hours are 9am to 4pm. We do offer early drop off beginning at 8:30am and late pick up by 5 for an additional fee.
Students must bring a lunch, water and 2 snacks each day.
Benefits of Summer Day Camp at ABCCNJ…
At Capoeira Summer Day Camp from August 12-August 23 our campers may be dropped off as early as 8:30am for an additional $5 per day and stay as late as 5pm for an additional $10 per day.
Our campers spend their days enjoying culturally relevant, literacy infused activities including: Capoeira, Yoga, art, music, dance, organized sports and games, walking trips and MUCH more! There won’t be a dull moment!
Our instructors are CPR & First Aid Certified and have experience working with children. We have come together to create a structured environment where your child can find stability and strength.
During summer day camp we take the opportunity to teach campers things that will benefit them for seasons to come. Both the traditions of Capoeira and Yoga teach respect for others, confidence and self-esteem. Because we understand that academic growth is typically at a standstill over the summer, we intend to make sure that participation in our program will ensure that your child will be ready to start the school year on the right foot, an advantage that many “camps” are not equipped to offer.
