Allendale Children entering K-8 in the Fall 

Location: Brookside School

The ALEOOOP Summer Program is coordinated and directed by certified, experienced school teachers who love what they do – and it shows. They’ve created a program of engaging age-appropriate activities that make this an enjoyable, enriching summer experience. Each age group is supervised by a team consisting of a trained head counselor and assistant counselors (counselor to child ratio is based on age group). A certified registered nurse is on duty every day.


Entering grades
K-3 in the fall

ALEOOOP provides a safe and supervised environment while allowing children the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy their summer experience. Age-appropriate activities include art, gym, swimming, creative expressions and nature.


Entering grades
4-8 in the fall

Activities are specifically designed for these older children In addition to daily activities, these older children also have:
Weekly electives – are special courses offered on Friday mornings.  Elective selections will be offered before the start of the summer program.
Once per session – children go on local off-site field trips. In past years they have gone bowling, to see a movie, rock climbing, and to an indoor trampoline facility. The cost for all activities and transportation is included in the registration fee.


Fun, Cool and Safe. Once a day all children either participate in group swims or play on the beach. Certified lifeguards, in addition to ALEOOOP counselors and senior staff, monitor the children. 


Friday afternoon is the time to enjoy special activities and visitors. One of the biggest highlights every year is the fun-filled  Olympics with relay races and more. On the last day, everyone joins in the excitement as they compete in the final Olympic events, with pizza and a DJ!


ALEOOOP is pleased to offer musical instrument lessons  and  a musical theater program.  Each of these can be taken on their own, or in addition to ALEOOOP.
