Summer Camp 2024 (2200 x 700 px) (1)

At BCRC Summer Camp, we believe in the power of play to create positive experiences and help kids grow emotionally and socially. Our dedicated staff is committed to guiding campers through a variety of fun activities including outdoor adventures, swimming, sports, arts & crafts, games, STEM projects, exciting field trips and more. Each week, we explore different themes that encourage leadership, critical thinking, teamwork, and the opportunity to form lasting friendships.

 Our goal is to create a nurturing environment where children can learn, play, and develop skills that will benefit them for life. To achieve this, we will prioritize connection, consistency, and compassion as our guiding principles, ensuring that every camper feels supported and valued.

Program Administration: The summer camp program located inside the BESIC is operated by the Baldwin City Recreation Commission.
