“I was very impressed with this camp, specifically the staff. We had only purchased one week, and my son loved it! He is easy to please, but very tough if he isn’t around engaged adults…. and he loved, loved the camp. I am very pleased- highly recommend! By the way, pick-ups and drop-offs were a dream! Thank you!”
“The BBN staff is outstanding. With educators on staff, not simply students as counselors, these are people that are invested in the program and the value of what a summer camp brings to the community. My kids have attended all the pricey camps out there, but BBN stands alone. I could not be more pleased as a parent!”


“Our child loved the change of scenery each day from outdoor games and sports to nature and art and pool time. The variety of activity coupled with the change in scenery from hour to hour really suited our child’s interests. We also loved having him meet campers from so many different cultures and backgrounds. He learned just by interacting with his fellow campers.”
“The kids had a wonderful time this summer. My son was only in camp one week, but loved the variety of activities — sports, swimming and arts. My daughter was in Kindergarten camp for two weeks, and had such a marvelous time. I got to know the K-camp staff a little better, and they are SUCH a friendly, engaging, nice bunch of folks.”
