Investigating the arts, nature, culture, and community through photo and film.
BCAPteen was founded in summer 2014 to offer camp alumni an opportunity to continue their BCAP experience beyond age 12, and to welcome new youth to our Cultural Campus. BCAPteen participants built creative and professional skills, while having a fun and social experience set on the BCAP Campus of six neighboring cultural institutions, and earning volunteer credit hours and a stipend.
