At BAX, we foster creativity, encourage exploration and provide a positive and nurturing environment. Children connect to one another and to our staff and experience the exhilaration of being an artist whether at age 4 or 11. Our staff and teaching specialists are dedicated to providing a vibrant learning and engaging environment for every child. BAX provides an excellent child-to-staff ratio and ensures that each child is treated as an individual.

We strive to create a non-competitive focus and proactive ways to be inclusive in our interactions with each other.

No particular talent or experience is necessary only interest and curiosity.

Children bring their own lunch. BAX supplies two healthy snacks.

Each group is staffed by a Group Leader, two Senior Counselors, two Junior Counselors and Arts Specialists. The program is supervised by a Program Director and the Education Department Staff.

  • Summer camp options in Windsor Terrace area?

    However, he also did 2 weeks at BAX in Park Slope. They have an arts/movement camp. It worked with my schedule so I put him there and I was worried (before the summer) he wouldn't like it as much as PSDC because at BAX the only place they take them is JJ Byrne playground for part of the day. He ended up LOVING BAX's camp. He actually used the word love a lot when talking about his time there and it was like night and day getting him to go there in the mornings, soooo easy. Now he is more of an introvert and nerdy so I guess their camp is great for kids like him who don't like to go do a lot of excursions, etc. If getting to Park Slope - 5th and 8th St. - is possible, I'd try that camp. I'll be signing up my son for their whole camp next summer, which is only 4 weeks, unfortunately.
  • Review from the 2023 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: 5th Ave and 8th St How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 5 (incoming 1st) Review: We only did one week of BAX this summer. They use JJ Byrne for outdoor space and had a tent set up for shade which I appreciated. They tie dyed their camp shirts which my daughter enjoyed and she liked the different physical and performing art activities. They put on a little showcase for the parents on the Thursday and Friday afternoons (depending which age group you’re in) and she was proud to show off here work. Nice group of counselors. No field trips and no swimming as part of this program.
  • ISO: summer day camps for a 5 year old

    BAX is the best. My son attended most summers from age 4 to 12 and then became a junior and then senior counselor. Each week is different (acting, movement, circus, arts) and it’s the most affordable camp I’ve found in Brooklyn. I especially like that the focus is on having fun instead of on creating a polished product. I recommend them highly!
  • 2018 Summer Camp Reviews

    My step daughter LOVED the young people working there and she also loved the fact that they did a show at the end of each week.
  • Review from the 2017 PSP Summer Camp Survey

    Low key but very engaging If you could change anything, what would it be? More professional staffs Age of child: 6 Based on a Summer 2017 experience
  • [ANONYMOUS] Affordable local summer daycamps?

    You should look into Brooklyn Arts Exchange (BAX). My son has been involved there as a counselor and I know that they have great camp programs but in addition to that I'm pretty sure they have a sliding scale or scholarships for families that need it. Also, in case your kid is musical, the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music has scholarships for their programs.
  • Summer Camp Survey 2016

    Age of child: 11 Review: He loved it. The counselors are wonderful and they build up to a performance at the end of the week that is so creative and fun. Very nurturing and inclusive environment; my son really thrived there. What would you change about the program, if anything? Nothing.
  • Summer Camp Survey 2016

    Age of child: 6 Review: He loves it. The counselors are so warm and sweet. And there is lots of playtime. (I think Park Slope Day Camp was a little exhausting for him, and he's a very active kid.) What would you change about the program, if anything? Maybe another outdoor session in the after camp part?
  • ISO 2 or 3 day summer camp program for 5's

    Also, BAX has a great program for little ones if you are looking for an art-focused program.
  • Re: [PSP] ISO: reviews of BAX summer camp

    My son was aged five last summer and he did two sessions of BAX. He is outdoorsy but absolutely loved it and wanted to go to "school" there this fall. If only his kindergarten were more like BAX! I thought it was very creative, clever and exposed him to a lot of new ideas--which he was able to articulate. He continues to ask about when he is going back. The teaching artists were very high caliber, there was a weekly performance, as well as daily outdoor time. BAX is committed to supporting artists and providing scholarships to families with need--both very important and worthy. I recommend it.
  • Review from 2015 Summer Camp Survey

    Age of Child: 6 Likes: Warmth of counsellors What would you change? More outdoor play time Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend
  • Review from 2015 Summer Camp Survey

    Age of Child: 8 Likes: Professional and creative theater artists, a strong camp director, sense of fun. What would you change? I like that BAX develops young leaders, but the young staff created a chaotic feel at the camp. The group leader was not very personable or approachable, which I attribute to bring uncomfortable with parents. Would you send your child(ren) again? No Do you recommend? Recommend with reservations
  • Summer Camp review BAX for PSP website

    I would like to post a review for the Brooklyn Arts Exchange Summer Program.http://bax.org/ . My email on file with PSP attached to my membership is sj.wallace@rutgers.edu The summer program is excellent. Andrew, the director, is great and the counselors do a wonderful job with the children. Each week has a theme and at the end of the week there is a performance. Everyday they go to the park and have sprinkler time in addition to arts, dance, music etc. The space at BAX is spacious and cool which is great on days it is either very hot or really rainy. Aftercare program at the end of the day is also excellent. Both of our children loved the program and have been attending the mini breaks during the school year. Highly recommend. My kids are ages 5 and 6.

    My son Jules, almost 4 now, attended Creative Movement I with Dawn all of last year and loved it. She was great and really engaging and the final concert at the end of the year was fantastic. BAX is a great Brooklyn institution. (July 2011)

    Specific Camp Program (if applicable) - Jumping Tomatoes, "Gotta Sing, Gotta Act, Gotta Dance Location - 5th Ave, Park Slope How old is your child? (or the age when he/she attended camp) Age: - 6 What did you/your child like about the summer camp? My daughter loved working in a small group to create a performance. The staff were great at incorporating the kids' ideas and empowering them to create the production. It was a simple but cozy program, which worked very well for my semi-introverted daughter. The staff were very attentive and caring and they helped her come out of her shell and shine on stage in a way I've never seen her do before. What would you change about the program? Nothing! Will you send your child back to this summer camp program next year? (Or would you if you could?) Yes Would you recommend this program to other parents for their child in the future? Highly recommend

    Age: - 6 What did you/your child like about the summer camp? This was my son's second summer at BAX, and one thing we were really able to appreciate was the continuity -- many of the same counselors and teaching artists were back again, and my son remembered them and vice versa. The simple fact that so many people (staff and campers alike) return year after year is a sign of what a wonderful environment BAX fosters for everyone. The staff are incredibly kind and supportive, and I know that my son particularly likes developing relationships with older kids and the younger teenaged counselors. He's a shy kid, but these past two summers he has grown so much socially -- far more than over the course of a school year. BAX is more affordable than other summer camps (especially when you take into account the very cheap after-camp program; very helpful for working parents), but we have found it to be a priceless experience! What would you change about the program? No Response Will you send your child back to this summer camp program next year? (Or would you if you could?) Yes Would you recommend this program to other parents for their child in the future? Highly recommend

    Age: - 7 What did you/your child like about the summer camp? Lots of structured activities, very busy, not a lot of trips What would you change about the program? a little more physical activity outdoors Will you send your child back to this summer camp program next year? (Or would you if you could?) No Would you recommend this program to other parents for their child in the future? Highly recommend If there is any other information you want to provide, let us know here: Only reason we're not returning is we've participated 2 years and it's time for something new -- love the program!!
  • Summer Camp Reviews 2010

    Program: Tumble Moves Age of Child: 8 Likes: My daughter, who is slow to warm up in a new setting, enjoyed the camp, which she attended for 1 week. She seemed to feel comfortable there, and did not get lost in the crowd. She had fun and participated. Her main counselor took time to check in with her. I liked the way they help the kids keep track of belongings, and the info they provide to parents before "camp" starts is clear and thorough. Everyone who works there was great, enthusiastic. What would you change? Nothing. Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend Do you have any other information to add? They offer extended day care: flexible and affordable.
  • Summer Camp Reviews 2010

    Age of Child: 5 Likes: Every week had a different theme and at the end of each weeks the kids out on a show. My son loved it. What would you change? The space is a little tight (especially at pick up time) but it doesn't seem to bother the kids. Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend Do you have any other information to add?
