Due to COVID-19, BCAP has been cancelled for the 2020 season. But check out our updates for BCAP at Home!
Please note we only have a limited number of spots with financial aid available.
BCAP Summer Camp is an award-winning day camp for kids ages 7-12 (grades 2-7). During our two-week summer program, Adventurers visit two institutions on our Cultural Campus each day, where they explore our annual theme through games, experiments, creative arts, and exploration. Our team of experienced educators and counselors are committed to helping our Adventurers grow-- intellectually, socially, personally, and creatively-- in our safe, welcoming, and FUN camp community.
Registration for Summer 2021 will open in Winter.
Theme & Curriculum
Each year educators from the six member institutions collaborate with the BCAP Director to create a curriculum of fun new activities that weave connections between the arts, nature, history, culture, technology, literature, and science. Check out some higlights from past years here.
