BVRA Summer Day Camp 2020

Registration for Summer 2020 will open on March 2, 2020

Explore,,, Discover... Play... Experience... Summer!

At BVRA we strive to offer a unique summer camp experience that your child will love.  This summer, we are bringing back all of our campers' favorite activities, like: fantastic field trips, swimming at the community pool,  gymnastics, and enriching art and science activities.

Our goal is for every camper to feel excited when arriving in the morning, and leave camp happy and exhausted at the end of the day.  Our program discourages screen time, and focuses on development of imagination, cooperation, and confidence through outdoor activities.  For this reason electronic devices are not allowed at camp.  

Summer Day Camp is open to campers ages 5-10 years of age who have completed Kindergarten and are moving into first grade.

Summer Camp Location

BVRA Summer Day Camp is based out of the Warming House, located at 205 Saint Lawrence Street. This prime location gives campers access to the Lewisburg Recreation park, Skate Park, the Lewisburg Community Pool, the Rail Trail, and the many other resources used for camp. This cozy bungalow is where we start and end the day. Throughout the day, campers are on the go in our community.

Field Trips, Tours & Daily Adventures

At BVRA Summer camp, our kids are always on the go. This summer campers, will enjoy afternoons at the Lewisburg Community Garden, BVRA Gymnastics Facility, Lewisburg Community Pool (twice a week), and movies on the big screen at the Campus Theatre. Campers should be prepared to walk up to 1 mile to reach some destinations.  

In addition, each week campers will board the bus for a fun-filled day of adventure. On field trip days, the bus will depart from the warming house at 9 am and return at 4 pm unless otherwise noted below.
