Summer Camp

BCD’s Summer Day Camps offer full-day programming that promises to capture your child’s energy and enthusiasm with plenty of summertime fun!
 
Our summer program is rooted in BCD’s motto – Respect Yourself. Respect Others. Take Responsibility for Your Actions. – and the same guideposts that make our school-year programs exceptional. Our Summer Camp is the BCD that you know and trust - with a summertime twist. 

We’re full of laughter, loads old-fashioned fun (think of running through sprinklers and potato sack races), and plenty of time outside in the Colorado sunshine. What could be better?

BCD’s Summer Camp program is open to children entering preschool through third grade (ages 3 – 8) who are either currently enrolled or have been accepted for the 2021-2022 school year at BCD. Camp is divided into two age groupings – Sandbox (for children ages 3-5) and Camp Boom! (for children ages 5-8). 

We believe that your child will love Summer Camp at BCD! Registration is now open.

Health and Safety at Camp

After taking last summer off from camp in order to figure out how to safely have children on campus during a pandemic, we’re ready to reopen our doors again this June for 6 weeks of camp. Similar to our school year class groupings, summer camp participants will be grouped by age into consistent cohort groups ranging from 10-15 children. The camp cohorts will not mix with each other, time outdoors will be a priority, and ensuring top-notch health policies and protocols will continue to be our primary focus. Our summer program team will abide by best practices and follow the guidelines set forth by state and local health agencies. We’re committed to cleaning, sanitizing, physical distancing, required daily health checks, and mask wearing so that your child stays healthy while at camp. Additionally, we will ask all families to recommit to our Affirmation of Partnership and to abide by any State or County Public Health Guidelines or Mandates.
 
Our program is licensed by the State of Colorado and all faculty and staff members must pass a thorough background check and complete trainings focused on campus safety, administration of emergency medications, first aid, and CPR. If you have questions about our attention to health and safety, please feel free to contact Kath Courter.
