Briarwood’s Lower Camp program is designed for kids going into 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. Our Lower Camp program builds on our Busy Bee program (although you don’t have to have been a Busy Bee to participate) with a deeper emphasis on instruction and a continued promotion of self-confidence.

Our lower campers experience all of Briarwood and their smiles and enthusiasm light up the camp.

Each Lower Camp bunk has an eight period, varied and well-rounded weekly schedule. They swim twice a day – one instructional swim and one free swim. Also, our lower campers get to choose an elective each week (we call them club periods). Clubs are a big hit and our kids enjoy being able to get a little extra of their favorite activities.

Lower campers also get to go on a specially designed out of camp trip. They can participate in other optional activities such as their bunk’s mini-cookout, Art Night, Ceramics Night and Sports Night. Our campers going into 3rd grade can also attend the popular Briarwood Overnighter Weekend.
