  • Entertainment for 3 year old birthday party

    Treasure Trunk Theatre will either come to you or you can have the party at one of their 2 locations. Lovely people and keeps the kiddos entertained. My son goes there for all the school holiday camps too. Just had his 4th party there.
  • February Break Camp for THREE Year Olds?

    Check out treasure trunk! We sent my 3 year old for Election Day and she loved it.
  • School holiday mini-camps for pre-K kids?

    Treasure Trunk is fab.
  • School holiday mini-camps for pre-K kids?

    We love Treasure Trunk - it’s a great option.
  • Looking for Summer Camp for Almost 3 Year Old

    My son is also going to Treasure Trunk in the Prospect Park near the Picnic House and he loves it! I love it too! They have 4 teachers for 12 kids and are very caring and creative!
  • Review from the 2023 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Fourth Ave- Park Slope How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 6.5 Review: The staff at this location were kind and personalized with our daughter. After attending two weeks of camps there, our child demonstrated greater comfort in public speaking and performing. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I think the program is best suited for someone under six. Our 6.5 year old enjoyed the sessions but found them to be tailored more for a younger crowd. (Hard to predict this when planning camps out in Spring.)
  • Review from the 2023 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Park Slope (4th Ave) How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 3 Review: Space is large, open and bright. Teachers were all very engaged and caring. There is a theme each week usually centered on a book and the kids do a craft related to the theme each day and do lots of reading and “acting”. My son really enjoyed it. We did extended day and the kids went to a nearby playground. When we visited as a family later my son relayed all the rules frkm Treasure Trunk so they did a great job of setting boundaries. We did 2.5 weeks and I think that was a good amount - this was perfect for a supplement to our full time camp/school. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? The teachers are more camp counselors than teachers, so they weren’t as helpful with drop off tears but they were so kind.

    Location: Brooklyn Brainery How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: Our kiddo LOVED this camp! He enjoyed the excitement of opening the treasure chest every day, loved the stories, was so excited to show off his craft activity daily, and was surprisingly into the end of week performances. Really a great program with lovely counselors and a well thought-out set of activities. Only attended for the AM so can't speak to the longer day program, but we were big fans.

    Location: Park Slope 4th Ave How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 5 Review: Warm, fun and entertaining camp experience. My son really connected to the staff and had a nice time even though he has trouble with separation. The owner is also very helpful and caring.
  • Summer camp for 2-3 year olds 8/28-9/5

    Treasure trunk is a super fun program and in May they’ll be opening a new location in the slope. I think it’s on 4th Ave and Sackett-ish? Keep an eye on their Instagram or sign up for their email list for all the info as summer sign ups open for the new location.
  • Spring break camps for 4 year olds (April 6-14)

    Try Treasure Trunk! It’s ages 3 - 6, I believe and they have various locations both indoors and out. My son has been to many of their camps and we love them!
  • Summer Camp for Toddler!

    Check out Treasure Trunk! I believe they have a half day option if you need it :)
  • good holiday camp for 4 yr old with spots open on the 11th ?

    We love Treasure Trunk Theatre. They have an Encanto themed camp on Friday. A bunch of locations throughout the area with indoor options. They always do camps during school holidays.
  • Mini Camps for 4 & 7 year olds

    My daughter really loves Treasure Trunk Theatre. They offer different themed mini-camps at various locations
  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Fort Greene Park How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 5 Review: "What an absolutely joyful time my daughter had at camp this week. Every day that I picked her up, she was exuberant, filthy, and full of wonderful stories. C, Charly, and Rhys were all amazing and I honestly was just so delighted with the program. You filled a really helpful gap in our childcare scheduling puzzle, but more than that it turned out to be a really meaningful summer experience." - Katie What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? Possibly the length of a full workday, but that would probably be too much for the little ones. At first I thought it was pricey, but when I realized there were 3 teaching artists for a small group, I realized why. The quality, personality, and joy of the teaching artists was just wonderful. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? They were super responsible about germs, etc., and the fact of it being outside made it a non-issue.
  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Atlantic Avenue studio How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 3 Review: It was a one room studio. My daughter went for the second half of the summer in August and she loved it! There was arts and crafts, singing, acting, and dancing every day. She played with kids of different ages (3-6) which she had not been willing to do before. The instructors are amazingly sweet and patient. It was a wonderful experience. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? N/A

    Location: Carroll Park How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: My son loved the camp. Seems like they kept him engaged, and helped him flex his creativity and self expression muscles.
  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: 141 Atlantic Ave How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 3-4 Review: Treasure trunk is incredible. My daughter loved spending the day there. She did art projects, danced, got to play outside (they have an outdoor option but I chose indoors) and just really had a fun time. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? Nothing Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? Kids did wear masks which I thought was great. They ate lunch outside too.
  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Prospect park picnic house How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? Three Review: It was an outdoor 9-3 pm camp for the labor day week since my daughter's 3K program started this week. My daughter had the best time being outside all day, singing and acting Moana songs. The teachers were great, sent pictures. It was a great way to transition my daughter from daycare setting to get ready for school. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I wish their aftercare lasted till at least 5:30 pm. We still had to arrange for a babysitter to pick up and hangout till 5:30 pm. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? They notified us promptly about COVID exposure which I appreciated.
  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Carroll Park How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: The camp was wonderful. Logistically, it was seamless from drop-off to pick-up. On a rainy day, since the camp was outdoors, the communication with families about an indoor space was timely and efficient. They had everything set up no problem! The teachers are kind, easy-going and confidence-boosting. They keep the kids busy without over-scheduling with plenty of time for independent imaginary play and drawing on their own. Treasure Trunk simply doesn't disappoint. My child came home every day, singing and dancing with joy and ease.
  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Prospect Heights, Brooklyn Brainery How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 2 years 8 months Review: This was our son’s very first camp experience. He went to the 9-12 program to get him used to a group camp. Wonderful open space for movement and a great outdoor backyard. Our son is on the young side but just adored this camp. He still talks about it and does the Toy Story dance he learned. He tripped and hurt his mouth on the last day and the teachers were so kind and helpful and communicative. I’m excited to enroll him in the full 9-3 program next summer or for one of the school holiday programs this winter. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I wish we had more photos and videos. They provided a shared Google photo Dropbox but the photos were ok. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? All students wore masks as best as they could and so did teachers. They left the back door to the backyard open at all times. I know they do outdoor camps in the park as well.
  • 3K Childcare during school holidays

    We love Treasure Trunk Theatre, which runs holiday camps for kids 3 and older. If you pay for the extended day, their camps run 9-3. So it's not a full working day, but much of it, and we have always had great experiences. Their holiday break classes do tend to fill up so you want to sign up well in advance.
  • ISO Recommendations for Birthday Party Princess-for-Hire or Similar Glittery, Girly Entertainment Op

    Definitely check out Treasure Trunk Theatre. They're amazing. Local mom owned and run + do great programming (both indoor and outdoor). Also, my princess obsessed daughter loved her birthday with them.
  • What to do on all the days when school is closed?

    Last year I did treasure trunk camp which [my 6 year old] liked too!
  • Review from the 2021 Summer Camp Survey

    Name of camp: Treasure Trunk Location: Prospect Park How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: My child loved going to Treasure Trunk! This was his 2nd camp of the Summer, and he was definitely partial to this one. He loves imaginary play and is very active, and this was right up his alley. I wasn't sure if he'd love structured imaginary games, but he did. We had one class on zoom when it rained and I got to see how much he participated and enjoyed the activities. He loves telling us about his day and what he did at camp. I wish I had signed him up for the whole Summer! As a parent, I loved their flexible scheduling options and how responsive the staff was. What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? It would be nice if it started a little earlier, like 8:30am. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? The camp was entirely outdoors and the kids and staff wore masks. It felt very safe.
  • Summer Program Recommendations?

    We just registered our older kiddo for summer camp classes through Treasure Trunk Theatre. We will have grandparents here to help this summer but wanted to supplement with outdoor classes - they offered full week and individual day options at various locations in Brooklyn. Our child has been taking classes through Treasure Trunk for a few years and has really enjoyed the activities and seems to like the outdoor classes even more.
  • Treasure Trunk Theater Camp

    I just wanted to second how great Treasure Trunk Camp is - my 4 year old daughter had a ball there last week at the Atlantic Ave location and the kids seemed to learn loads - the end of week performance was really impressive!! The outreach work they are doing is also really great.
  • Treasure Trunk Theater Camp

    I just wanted to give a shout out to Treasure Trunk Theater Camp. My 5-year-old has been doing their summer camps for 3 years and she loves them! Everyday they do theater, dance, and a craft project and at the end of the week they put on an impressive performance based on the theme of the week. (Could be The Wizard if Oz, Moana, Trolls, Mary Poppins, etc). They are running a new camp next week for 4-7 year olds called the Magic of Musicals. If anyone needs a last minute camp they still have spots left! I highly recommend this camp to both dramatic kids and shy ones-I’ve seen it bring super shy kids out of their shells. The instructors are talented and sweet. It’s also a short commitment, which is nice- 9-12 with the option of doing extended day until 3. I think they also allow drop in days if you can’t do the whole week and early drop off. Anyway, i’m in no way affiliated with TTT, I just want to spread the word if you haven’t heard of this gem! We go to the location on Underhill at the Brooklyn Brainery.
  • Theatre camps?

    Treasure trunk theater is wonderful. I was blown away by the amount of learning that happened and my daughter absolutely loved it. They also do wonderful single day camps and winter break camps, and even had a last minute snow day camp last winter that both my 3 year old and my 5 year old were able to attend, which was awesome!
  • camps for rising Kindergarteners?

    My daughter just did the kindness camp at treasure trunk theater for a couple of days over winter break and loves it. The teaching artists are really fantastic. I’m not sure about their summer offering but I know they have some camps.
  • camps for rising Kindergarteners?

    I wanted to mention Treasure Trunk Theater camps. They are each a week long (half day but you can add a full-day option) and while they aren’t a great option for the whole summer, because there isn’t a ton of outside time, they are ideal for the in-between weeks when school has ended and camp has not yet started, or at the end of the summer too. They also do day-long camps on school holidays. My daughter absolutely loves everything they do — she gets so excited for Treasure Trunk days. They are also staffed by lovely, kind, creative people. There are a few locations around Brooklyn.
  • 2018 Review

    We just recently did a joint kids' 3rd birthday party for our daughter and her bestie at the Treasure Trunk Theatre and it was just a great experience all around! First off, the staff were responsive and flexible and you can tell this was not their first rodeo .. they helped organize, serve, and answer all questions from guests and provided a really great relaxing experience for the party hosts! The space is great! it's clean , open and easy to work with for both small and large groups! (we were able ot fit almost 20-30 adults and 15-20 children! The party was set up to have an imagination led activity in the first hour for about 35-40 minutes and then the second half is to serve any food or cake you provide. i was genuinely surprised that the kids were able ot follow the activity which was tailored to the theme of the party and it was great to see how they adjusted the activity for the appropriate agegroup! Even for 3 yr olds who have the attention span of gnats! the big send off was that they have bubbles coming from the ceiling which i don't know who can resist!!! Overall we just had such a pleasant experience, i highly recommend this business for potential bday parties for most age groups!
  • 2018 Review

    I wanted to post this in the reviews in case someone was looking for a party venue for kiddos! It's a new space at 141 Atlantic. The owner has been leading classes around Brooklyn for some time, but they just recently got their own space at 141 Atlantic. We had my son’s 3rd bday at treasure trunk theatre on Atlantic and it was amazing! Elisa, the owner, is so easy to work with, as are all the staff. They help set up, clean up, and engage with the kids. During the party, they lead an interactive adventure with the kids, using stuff the kids suggest in the adventure story. They also build the story around your bday party theme (Dinos and jungle animals for us). And the best part is the end where bubbles come from the ceiling! The women did a really wonderful job of making the birthday boy feel special. He even talked about the story they created when I put him down for nap after his party. That was amazing because you never really know how much they’re taking in through all the craziness! Just such a fun party all around, and really different from other parties! The space is beautiful and requires little additional decorations, which really helps. They provide little tables and chairs for the kiddos too. We just ordered food from Whole Foods and Elisa suggested a local pizza place for lunch.
  • 2018 Summer Camp Reviews

    Summer 2018 Review: This is a fun, indoor pretend play camp. My kid did Moana week this year. For the morning camp (9-12 with an 8:50 drop off), they pretend as a group with the guidance of a teacher, do some “acting”, a craft and read a story every day. There’s an option to stay until three and go to the playground, but I never used it. On Fridays, the kids demonstrate the things they’ve been doing, put on a little play and do a choreographed dance in the middle of a day. Age of child: 4
  • Summer Camp Survey 2016

    Age of child: 4 Review: The camp, although small-scale (hosted at the Brooklyn Brainery) was the highlight of my daughter's summer. She came home singing new songs and full of details. She has already asked to attend next summer (and the summer after that!). She is an imaginative kid and loves everything make-believe, so perhaps it's not a surprise that she loved it so much and can't speak for those children who are less inclined to be the "stars of the show.". But it seemed very age appropriate and it was a week of fun when very few camps were operating. What would you change about the program, if anything? It's a bit pricey for what it is (no swimming or field trips and a very short day 9-12). The extended day program was really undersubscribed and they just ended up going to the playground, so it might have been cheaper just to hire our usual sitter for those extra three hours. If it had been more "programmed" I might have thought it more worthwhile.
  • Summer Camp Survey 2016

    Age of child: 4 yrs Review: Fantastically friendly teachers, my son loved the program. Each day of the week long camp addressed the theme with books, crafts, music and dancing.
