If you have yet to register your kiddies into summer school , do not fret as there are slots left in the following below camps. Some camps are filling fast, our suggestion is if you see a camp that works for you -apply!

Our main focus are Greenpoint/Williamsburg camps however we included quite a few that are in the surrounding Brooklyn area as there are many parents who are willing to trek a bit for a specialty camp such as language or sports.

We will add appropriate camps as we find them or they find us. If you are a camp in the Brooklyn area and wish to be listed please email us at motherburg@gmail.com.
