BVRA Summer Day Camp

Registration for Summer 2019 will open at 9am on March 1, 2019

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 our campers favorite activities like fantastic field trips, swimming at the community pool, biking on the rail trail, gymnastics, and enriching art and science programs.

Play is the primary focus of our unique program.  We strive to make sure that every camper is excited to arrive in the morning, and leaves 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.

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 Children's Play Garden. 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 campers are always on the go. This summer campers will enjoy afternoons at the Lewisburg Community Garden, Bowling, Swimming twice/week, and movies on the big screen at the Campus Theatre. Campers should be prepared to walk up to 1 mile to reach one of our 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 9am and return at 5pm.
