About BTC Summer Camp 2023

Inspire and Connect

At Camp BTC, we invite our campers to be inspired by a weekly special guest. Then we give our campers the opportunity to connect and bring their imagination to life by offering related projects.

Water Play and Meaningful Onsite Activities

Basking in that summer camp feel, the smell of sunblock will permeate, as campers cool down in their own individual kiddie pool and play water games with their camp buddies. There will be various activities, games, and neighborhood scavenger hunts, that will foster connection, community, and friendship, and that will provide a chance for our campers to earn prizes and a weekly chance to pie their selected counselor!

Weekly Projects

Aside from making sure that all activities create a FUN atmosphere, there are various academic core standards that are unobtrusively injected into the program. Instead of giving the children written tests to assess their performance, we give Brain badges to campers who can remember facts and answer questions that relate to information presented throughout the week and by the special guest.  Literacy will also be nurtured at camp as we offer daily campfire stories to foster the love of reading.  Lastly, weekly projects are offered so campers can have a creative space to apply what they’ve learned.  Learning within context and learning with FUN are the most effective ways to nurture their love for learning and discovery.

Our summer camp program is about more than just plugging in related themed activities and projects, at Camp BTC, everything we do is connected to a bigger picture.
