Rocky Brook Day Camp

Tuckahoe Eastchester (Tuck-East) House
119 Highland Avenue
Eastchester, NY 10709

Built in 1958, this house was made possible by the profits from Girl Scout cookies. Tuck-East has meeting spaces on booth floors, kitchen facilities with appliances, two fireplaces, and a downstairs stage.

The outdoor steps are similar to the “Singing Steps” at Edith Macy National Conference Center. In the summer, it is the site of Rocky Brook Day Camp.

Rocky Brook FAQs
Do you go on field trips, and if so, where?

Yes, once a week we travel to our sister camp Rock Hill located in Mahopac. At Rock Hill campers will be able to experience boating, swimming, archery, low ropes and more! We also go on one trip per session, coinciding with the theme of the session.

Do you offer swimming or swim lessons?

We offer swimming in a lake once a week when we travel to our sister camp Rock Hill located in Mahopac. Though our campers are swim tested for the ability to see what section they may swim in, swim lessons are not available for our campers. Unfortunately, at Rocky Brook, we do not have a pool or lake. We do have fun in the sun while staying cool with water fun during our daily sprinkler activity period. 

Do you provide lunch or snack?

We do not provide daily lunch at Rocky Brook, but we have occasional pizza parties and other fun picnics throughout the summer where we will provide lunch. However, we do provide a daily snack! Additionally, campers may purchase ice cream on Fridays from an ice cream truck. 

Do you offer an extended day?

Yes! We understand the needs of busy parents. For an additional fee we offer early drop off at 8:00 am and a late pick up at 6:00 pm. 

What is the optional overnight, and where is it held?

The overnight is an opportunity for our campers in grades 4th and up to get a taste of resident camp. Campers will spend the two days at our sister camp Rock Hill located in Mahopac, NY. While there they will sleep in platform tents, have cookouts, experience boating, archery, swimming, low ropes and more! 

How does camp stay in contact with parents?

We love sharing the awesome happenings in camp with our parents. “Traffic Notes” are given out daily at pick up to inform about special events throughout the week. Additionally, our Facebook page is always jam-packed with photos and videos of daily camp activities. Also, parents are always able to contact the camp director or assistant director via cell or email. 

Will my camper and her friend(s) be together all day?

At camp, we encourage girls to establish new friendships with campers as well as explore their individuality. However, we are a small camp and chances are your camper and her friend will see each other quite a bit during the day.
