It was just like camp should be.... fun, laid back, great activities with a friendly and spirited staff. All with a little bit of education snuck in. - Camp Parent
No matter the theme, all our camps have a similar rhythm to the day. As campers arrive, they put their belongings in their cubbies and check in with their group: Littles (ages 3 to 5), Middles (ages 5 to 10), and Elders (ages 10-12). A few independent activities like coloring or puzzles are available as friends arrive, and then it's time for our morning circle. Circle time is a great opportunity for friends new and old to learn more about each other through games and songs and also gives teachers an opportunity to share what campers will be up to that day.
After circle, it's time to get busy! Whether together or in groups, campers will spend the majority of the morning working on the main projects of the day. Each group will enjoy special activities geared to their interests and skills in addition to working with other groups on main projects.
Everyone takes a break for a mid-morning snack, then it's back to projects until lunch time. After recess, the water starts to flow, and The World’s Largest Slip ‘n’ Slide is ready for action! For friends who aren't as adventurous, there are sprinklers and a wading pool, too.
The afternoon generally winds down with calmer activities such as crafts or continuing projects begun earlier in the day, and the Littles have rest time.
Each day wraps up with a closing circle, where students have a chance to share what they've done and to talk about their plans for the next day. And at the end of each camp, family and friends are invited to join campers for a special activity or presentation.
BMS Camps are for kids 3 to 12 and run Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. All campers should come dressed for adventure and need to bring snack, lunch, and a water bottle. We also suggest you bring a swimsuit and towel for water play as well as sunscreen and bug repellent if you wish to use them.
