What is Traditional Summer Camp?

BFR Summer Camp is a full day experience, designed with a wide range of activities guaranteed to expand your child’s horizons. Kids have fun while making new friends, developing new skills, learning core values, building self-confidence and growing in self-reliance. Campers experience a variety of indoor and outdoor activities based around weekly themes. In addition, campers stay active in education through our daily active readers club built into each day. Join us in making this the best summer ever for your children.
