Our Summer Program
BMSB will be offering a 10-week summer program with many exciting activities. Our camp program has 5 themes, each running for two consecutive weeks. The program begins on June 13 and ends on August 19, 2016. We are closed Monday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.
We have hired a variety of creative enrichment specialists to compliment our curriculum. Children will have the opportunity to enjoy extended periods of time inside and outside daily. The children will have picnic snacks and lunch so that we can enjoy the warm weather during the summer months.
We look forward to offering this summer enrichment curriculum and hope to share some wonderful moments with your children.
