Virtual Camp 2020

Hello Summer@BB&N Families!

We hope you are well! We are excited to officially announce the launch of Virtual Summer@BB&N! This email will outline registration deadlines, pricing, activity options, platform information, and Summer@BB&N traditions that we will keep alive through our virtual platform!

Virtual Summer@BB&N offers an opportunity for campers, ages pre-k to 7th grade. They will engage in traditional summer camp activities while continuing to develop their autonomy and social-emotional skills and foundational skills, specifically in math & language arts. Virtual Summer@BB&N will utilize a platform called Clickto.Camp. This platform will allow ease of use for campers by providing them with one link that will be used for their entire week of programming. Once campers click into this link, they will automatically be taken through their personalized activity schedule without needing to leave the platform or ask for help! Through this platform, campers will engage in activities with their favorite camp counselors and on Fun Fridays, they will have the option to enjoy a live performance! Clickto.Camp offers easy access for our campers and allows camp to continue to be a stress-free, fun environment for all! Lastly, we hope that this platform will help to separate the virtual camp experience from the virtual school experience!

We hope you will join us on this journey as we make virtual camp the best and safest opportunity for our staff, campers, and families this summer! Our virtual camp provides take-home activity kits that you have the option of picking up from our campus or having delivered directly to your door! When registering you will be given the option of a full day classic camp, half day classic camp, or half day specialty camp. Within our classic day camp options, we have set up a schedule where campers and families can choose the activities that they prefer for each session of the day. Our leadership team felt it was important to give campers the option to choose their favorite activities, particularly in this hard time of needing to stay home. We hope this helps campers feel immediately engaged in our program and excited for the week ahead!

Virtual Summer@BB&N will be closing registration for each week of virtual camp 2 weeks prior to the first day of your registered session. For example, The first day of week 1 is 6/22/2020, registration for week 1 will close on 6/8/2020. We will need to close registration 2 weeks before your desired week in order to obtain supplies, pack the kits, and deliver/pick up the kits before your registered week.
