This summer, young campers were busy with Susanne Handel participating in her S.N.A.C.K.S program. The kids made all kinds of fun snacks that they enjoyed eating while at camp. When kids are involved in making their own food, they are more willing to try new things. Special thanks to Sue for bringing this great program to Badger!

Kevin Chin will be running the Golf Program at Camp this year. Kevin is a talented golf instructor and we are very lucky to have him join us for the 2014 Summer Season! Check out his website to learn more about Kevin’s teaching philosophy.
Food in the News
Badger campers work up big appetites when they are at camp! This year we have some new and delicious additions to fill up those hungry tummies!
Healthy Snack Program
Susanne Handel will be joining us this summer to implement her S.N.A.C.K.S. program (super, nutritious, amazing, creative, kids, snacks!) Susanne is a high school and middle school guidance counselor with a passion for health, fitness and nutrition. She most recently completed the ING NYC Marathon and leads an after school club geared to teaching students about the importance of nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
ABC Cakes will be our go to resource for birthday celebrations. If you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday at camp with cupcakes, our office will facilitate your order for the big day!
Village Pizza of Mamaroneck is the official pizza of Badger! Campers will enjoy fresh pies delivered to their group each week.
We are excited to have themed BBQs added to our lunch schedule each Friday this summer!
The Badger pool has a fresh coat of paint and is ready to be filled. It won’t be long now before the Badger swim team and our campers are making a splash!
Gear up for Swimming on June 8!
On June 8th, 2014 from 10am-2pm, Pedigree Ski shop will be at Badger selling swim gear and goggles. Don’t miss out!
What’s new for 2014?
We always try to keep things new and fresh here at Badger. This coming season we will be building a green house where the campers will be able to plant vegetables and eventually taste their own crops! We will be replacing the tent in the first court where our Arts & Crafts, Dance and Table Games are currently housed. The tents will provide more shade and dry space for more activities to take place. We have also added solar covers to the pool to better regulate the pool temperature. And, last but not least we will be making some delicious changes to our lunch menu! Yum, Yum, Yum! We’ll keep you posted as more additions get added to the list!
Summer on our minds
The pool may be covered in snow, but we have summer on our minds. We have already reached out to our staff and are pleased to report that many of counselors will be returning this summer. We are also looking forward to the addition of our Division Leaders. These staff members, who are teachers and or education professionals, will supervise a few groups and will be available to you to discuss all aspects of your child’s camp experience. Our groups will still be lead by Head Counselors as well. The Division Leaders will be emailing you weekly newsletters as well as setting up photo pages for you to access all summer. If you have not signed up, there’s still time. Please call the office with any questions and ask about our Winter Special.
We are gearing up!
We are busy gearing up for summer 2014! Many of you have enrolled using Bunk1.com. We are excited about streamlining the enrollment process and expect you to find making payments and the overall billing process much more convenient. We are also pleased to know that many of our beloved staff members will be returning next summer.
What’s new for the 2013 season?
We’ve made a few changes and added new things to make this season even better than the last! We installed a new surface on one of our tennis courts in order to make it a multi-purpose use area. We’ll still be playing tennis on it, but when tennis isn’t being played, now other things can be! We have brand new games for the game room and a new rainy day schedule that includes karaoke, American idol contests, whole camp big bingo and we’ll be converting the outdoor eating area as a new usable space for rainy days.
We’re getting ready for summer 2013!
Spring is here and that means summer isn’t far away! Spring bulbs are starting to pop up and landscaping is in full swing. Our wonderful office staff has been working hard to get employee contracts out and get everything in order. We are excited to announce that many of our counselors and instructors are returning for another great season. Camp applications keep rolling in and we are almost full. Let the countdown begin!
If your camper enjoyed swimming all summer, sign them up to swim all year long with Badger Swim Club! Badger Swim Club offers group swim lessons for kids 4 years old and up. Kids are grouped by age and move up the ranks as they get older. It is as competitive as they want it to be. Kids swim at Hammocks pool in Mamaroneck and other local pools around Westchester. Email info@BadgerSwimClub.com for more information!
