“BCAS has one of the only camp programs in the area that work for both of my kids, despite their four-year age gap and divergent interests. The camp activities are fun, educational, responsive, and inclusive, with enough variety to keep us coming back year after year. My 11-year-old said it best: “I love being outside with my friends, exploring nature!””
– Liz Sheehan
This summer camp is offered for kids ages 7-13 during the month of July. Through a mindful approach and a sense of self-discovery, Earth School serves as a response to Nature Deficit Disorder and aligns children to the rhythms of nature.
