Day Camps

Summer @ BB&N Scholarship Program

Cambridge Camping partners with BB&N to help with their goal to provide a valuable and enjoyable learning environment for boys and girls from grades Pre-K thru Grade 12 every summer. BB&N gives all campers a careful balance of recreational and creative activities in small groups. BB&N camps are both comfortable and friendly, and believe in a program that encourages new friendships to develop and established ones to grow. Whether you spend one week with BB&N or several, we are hopeful that you will look back on a well-rounded experience full of fond memories that will last a lifetime.

Summer Campers sleep in rustic cabins with nine girls their age and three counselors. Days are filled canoeing, kayaking, swimming, sailing, dance, land sports, photography, drama, archery, pottery, knitting, sewing, arts and crafts, science explorers and adventure day trips. Evening activities include talent shows, scavenger hunts and dancing. Each bunk group spends a night camping in a tent and roasting marshmallows for s’mores over an open fire.

At Wildwood, we do all of that and so much more. We venture into the great outdoors, track animals, build shelters, plant seeds, plot courses, and paint pictures. Throughout camp, we build a community where each person is an important part of the group and is valued and respected.
