Frequently Asked Questions
What is Squire Camps?
Squire Camps is a fun and nurturing environment and provides children with a camp program that is totally individualized. Our total choice programs allow children to customize their own high-quality summer experience. Each camper can choose to focus on a full day of thorough sports instruction or choose a day filled with Arts, Science, Culture, Swimming, and more with our "Tracks" programming. We promote learning through fun, and feel that camp has the ability to promote unparalleled growth and exploration.
Who are the staff?
The staff at Squire Camps are certified adult school teachers from local schools around the county. Our ratio is about 6:1 or better for our activities. The classrooms are air-conditioned and we also offer a full size gym, air-conditioned dining hall and a beautiful sports field. We swim at Maplewood Swim and Tennis club just down the street. We also play tennis there as well as Salomon Schecter school across the street from our main location at Maria Regina High School.
