Established in 1949 and continuing a proud tradition of providing enjoyable and memorable summer learning experiences for children. Summer @ BB&N is located at Buckingham Browne & Nichols School at our Upper School Campus at 80 Gerry's Landing Road, Cambridge, MA 02138.
Camp plays an essential role in the overall development of a child. At BB&N, we strive to create an environment that encourages participation and healthy risk taking. Our campers go home feeling accomplished and connected to a community of friends and staff. Promoting positive challenge and community connections is crucial for our next generation of leaders, and our team of professional and enthusiastic staff strive to make every camper's experience one of growth and connection."
BB&N provides a valuable and enjoyable summer experience for boys and girls from 4 years old thru rising 10th grade every summer. Campers must be 4 years old by June 1 of the camp year. All children are welcome regardless of the school they attend. We give all campers a careful balance of recreational and creative activities in small groups. All of our camps are both comfortable and friendly, and we believe in a program that encourages new friendships to develop and established ones to grow. Whether you spend one week with us or several, we are hopeful that you will look back on a well-rounded experience full of fond memories that will last a lifetime.
* Not to worry.. I know that getting your life back on track may take some time.. so although the shutdown is over, I will continue to keep this offer open to anyone (government, civilian, contractor, private or independent worker) that is affected.
For all of our families that are affected by the government shutdown, I have waived the deposit requirement for your enrollments this summer. Please feel free to register at any time with zero dollars required to hold your space at camp. Simply enroll up to the payment page and make no payment. Instead, log out and contact our Camp Office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the camp weeks you would like and we will complete your enrollment. After June 1, I will work with you to arrange for a personal payment plan that works for your family. Thank you for your service.
