Drop-Off & Pick-Up

Summer @ BB&N is located at Buckingham Browne & Nichols School at our Upper School Campus at 80 Gerry’s Landing Road, Cambridge, MA 02138.

Morning Drop Off

Early Morning Drop Off (7:30-8:30 am): All campers in all grades should be brought into the MAIN School Building this year. There will be signs to direct you to the side door of the Community Room where we will have snack and play until the regular drop off time at 8:30am. Due to the unique set up of early morning and the safety of all campers, we ask that you park in the circular driveway of the Main School Building for a quick and easy drop off and check your camper in with the staff each morning rather than letting them walk into the building unattended. Parking in the circular driveway is only permitted for quick drop offs for Early Morning campers.

Regular drop off (8:30-8:50am): Our day begins with introductions, free play, and team building. We will leave our homerooms by 8:55am to head to our first activity of the day so we ask that all campers be in their homerooms by 8:50am. Drop off before 8:30am is not permitted unless the camper is participating in our Early Morning Program (pre-registration is required and includes a fee).

Regular Morning Drop off is organized by grade as follows and begins at 8:30am:
